Absurd Greinke post of the week

Having some fun with Zack's amazing start:

Let's compare Zack to the most celebrated pitching season in most of our lifetimes (even if some of the 80s and 90s pitchers actually bested it) I'm talking Gibson in 1968:

ERA + 258

22-9 1.12 ERA

304.2 IP 198 H 49 R 38 ER 11 HR 62 BB 268 K

 

Greinke 2009, projected (I'll use 25 games played to date to project, since he can't pitch until Monday):

ERA + 934 (I'm giddy just from typing that!)

32-0 0.50 ERA

233 IP 156 H 19 R 13 ER 0 HR 52 BB 285 K

 

Well, sorry Gibby - you are no match. Let's move on to something closer:

 

Cat Osterman, U of Texas 2005:

30-7 0.36 ERA

 

Cat Osterman, U of Texas 2006:

38-3 0.38 ERA

 

Now there's a worthy goal to pursue! GO ZACK!
