    Re: Greinke wins the AL Cy Young!

    Zack is a great story, and to think he almost hung it up a couple years ago because of his anxiety disorder. He deserves the award despite the Royals inability to score him any runs, and it gives the fans some shred of hope to cling to.

    The kid knows how to pitch, and if the Royals are smart, they will try to lock him up and never trade him (unless they get contracted).

    Good, he definately deserved it.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    Good! He deserved to win it. They said he didn't have enough wins, but how do you win as much as the others with no team around you.

    Re: Greinke wins the AL Cy Young!

    Are all the awards given out? Did Mauer get his MVP yet?

    Re: Greinke wins the AL Cy Young!

    maybe they can get him to sign a long term extension that is back loaded so that they can keep him around and build around him. Luckily, Boras is not his agent...The Royals have a chance, but they need to hurry up, he is a free agent after this next season

    He's not a free agent after next season. Greinke agreed to a deal last offseason that has him under contract in KC through 2012. It was a 4 year/$38m deal which bought out his first 2 years of free agency. For those that are interested it breaks down like this:

    2009: $3.75m
    2010: $7.25m
    2011: $13.5m
    2012: $13.5m

    Re: Greinke wins the AL Cy Young!

    Thanks, The website that I looked at said that he was a free agent after 2010, but that makes sense that he isn't.

    Same way Gordon Beckham finished 5th in the AL ROY.

    They already did lock him up for the 1st two years of his free agency.... need to show him we can compete if we want to get that deal extended!
