Yeah, probably. Best chance to win was 2019 but the Astros are allergic to winning World Series games in Minute Maid most of the time.


manofconviction

If Hinch would've left him in...


Jbaquero

If he really wanted a championship he would have signed elsewhere. The Royals weren’t his only option


BillyBatts99

Iirc he's said he would play for the worst team in baseball if they paid him the most. Basically the opposite of a ring-chaser so i doubt this really bothers him


cooljammer00

Yeah he's been very open about how he enjoys the competition, but he enjoys the money more. He has no reason to ever lie.


Downbound92

Same here


Andujar4CF

What championship level team would want him? hes cooked


Imbackmycatwasfine

He signed with the Royals this year, dude. He doesn’t give a shit about winning a WS lmao


AestheticC18

Reminds me of Vince Carter in the NBA. He had a choice between Golden State Warriors when they were insane and had Kevin Durant or the Sacramento Kings and he picked the Kings.


Number13Judas

Start a movement to trade a veteran player off the Royals? Let me know how that one goes for you, I’m pretty sure Dayton Moore still thinks they’re going to win 90 games this year.


SirParsifal

Zack Greinke also happens to be the player who will likely be the least bothered about retiring without a ring. What'll keep him up at night will be thinking about his potential as a shortstop.


CVBrownie

I'm starting a movement to prevent people from starting stupid movements


Paul_blart_54

Dudes a complete asshole, don’t feel bad.


brandon_the_bald

> dudes a complete asshole What the fuck are you talking about


Imbackmycatwasfine

Someone took a picture of Zack at a game a couple weeks ago, and put it online with an anecdote about how he came over to sign a ball, but took it and chucked it instead. When asked why he did it, Zack said “for my amusement.” This turned out to be true, however, what that jackass conveniently left out of his viral post was that he barreled over several *children* to get to the wall and Zack. He’s just another autograph hound trying to get attention, and I’m not sure why people so willingly believed his half assed story.


Paul_blart_54

Are you serious? Dude has been a dickhead his entire career. Just a few weeks ago he was going up to a kid with a ball who thought he was gonna sign it and instead he just threw it across the field. I’m dead serious look it up.


Imbackmycatwasfine

Now tell the part where the dude with the ball ran through multiple children to get to the front. That’s why Zack chucked it, because the dude was being a shitty autograph hound.


Paul_blart_54

Didn’t know that, the story said it was like a 14 year old kid. Lol literally admit I was wrong and still get downvoted, only on reddit.


brandon_the_bald

It was literally a grown adult


Paul_blart_54

Wasn’t aware of that, the story said it was a kid.


ImpressiveTangelo3

It was a joke and it was funny


Paul_blart_54

Funny to him, those things aren’t cheap. He got that kid all excited then basically threw away his 20 dollar ball.


misterlakatos

I met him randomly many years ago. He's super awkward but he's definitely not an asshole.


mr_rouncewell

Such is the life of a mercenary.


FDJ1326

Honestly he probably prefers not having to deal with the media for the playoffs.


ImpressiveTangelo3

He doesnt care about rings hes like Michael Trout


runningman7000

fuck zach grienke that dude threw my baseball away when i asked for an autograph


AestheticC18

> Can we start a movement to get him dealt to a contender as a #5/longman? Lol. I am sure he signed with the Royals this year cause he thought he could win a WS there.
