Giving up 5 runs in your previous 65 innings pitched? Dominant. Giving up of 5 runs in the first inning without recording an out? Not so dominant. Getting 3 hits including a bomb and a sick bat flip to follow to make up for it? Legendary. For us PO’s who are not so handy with the lumber, there’s nothing that gets you going more than a pitcher who rakes like Zack Greinke. If his infield single or dinger doesn’t arouse your PO mind, maybe his .85 WHIP, 1.71 ERA and 11-2 record will get you going.
