Zack Greinke: Trust yields results
Talented right-hander beginning to believe in teammates
Zack Greinke attributes his successful start in 2007 in part to having confidence in his teammates' defensive play.
"When I first came up, I felt like I had to get everyone out myself and didn't really trust the players behind me. We've got a really good defense now that I'd put up there with the top couple teams in the league in defense," Greinke told MLBPLAYERS.com in a recent Players Talk show.
"I kind of just trust them and attack the strike zone now."
Through four starts this season, Greinke, the sixth overall selection in the 2002 draft, is 3-0 with a 1.24 ERA and 15 strikeouts. He threw a complete game against the Mariners in his second start of the year.
