The Baseball Analysts: Was Greinke's Streak Better Than Drysdale's?

Using these numbers we can compute the probability of our typical "good" pitcher completing each streak. For Drysdale, the chances were (.825) ^ 58 = 1 in 70,000. For Greinke, the chances were (.745) ^ 38 = 1 in 72,000. So in fact, due to the far tougher environment, Greinke's streak was actually tougher to accomplish than Drysdale's! I look forward to Zach's cameo on "The Brady Bunch."
