I have to admit I thought they were gonna blow it. Not that Felix Hernandez would've been a bad choice but Zack Greinke was the best pitcher in baseball. I think it's kind of funny that everybody is applauding the voters for doing the right thing which should tell us (and them) how awful some of their past choices have been (cough, 1993, cough).
Every time Greinke took the mound in '09 it was an event and facebook, message boards, and twitter were littered with greetings of "happy Greinke day" (somebody should have trademarked that). I can't wait to see how he follows it up in 2010.
Here are some Greinke links from across the Royals blogosphere:
