Goodbye My Lover

Zack Greinke, I will miss you.

Thank you so much for putting up the most amazing season I have ever witnessed from one of my fantasy pitchers. You see, normally, I pick lots of loser closers like Jason Isringhausen and Eric Gagne to fill out my pitching staff. This year, everyone prevented my closer draft strategy.

So, instead, I fell in love with you before the draft, Zack. I knew you were going to have a great year. And luckily, I only had to pay $17 for you. I simply had no idea you were going to put up a 16 wins and 242 Ks with a 2.16 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Way to out do my even lofty expectations.

Thank you. I will always think of you when I look at my AL bobblehead that will arrive to my desk in 3-4 weeks.

This is my ode to you since there is no way I will be able to afford you come next spring. However, I want to let you know that my man crush for you will not end.

I will play this song in your honor:


  1. I refuse to give you your championship bobble head.

  2. You're just jealous that Ron Shandler would consider me the King of Fantasy for my historical season.
