Brewers fans will have to wait a few weeks after the season starts before they get to see their new ace Zack Greinke take the mound. The new addition to the team is going to start the season on the disabled list after fracturing a rib during a basketball game with buddies a few weeks ago.
Greinke was quoted as saying:
"I've been doing this for a couple of years now, and people are always saying, 'You're going to get hurt.' It finally caught up to me. I was hoping it was just bruised, but I guess its worse than that. So I guess I have to stop playing [basketball] now. I had a lot of fun while I was doing it, but it wasn't worth it."
Uh... you think?
With this news, it's unclear who the Opening Day starter will be. Chances are it will be Yovani Gallardo, but manager Ron Roenicke hasn't made a final decision yet. Other starters in the Brewers' lineup are
Way to go, Zack. You just made the entire state of Wisconsin cry into their beer.
