Just read this article from Jeff Sullivan on Fangraphs about what is potentially missing in Zack Greinke’s starts with the Angels. In a nutshell: Greinke is not getting as many "extra" strikes, as he calls them, as a result from poorly framed pitches by Chris Iannetta.
"There’s very compelling reason to believe that Greinke’s catching is worse now than it was in Milwaukee. It should make some sort of difference, and so it should be some sort of consideration."
Would that also explain the collective pungent stench currently infesting the Halos pitching staff? I don’t believe so, but I don’t have any statistical evidence to the contrary, nor have I seen 4,000 games with my own two eyes to "validate" my personal hunch/opinion.
What say you?
