11:57 AM ET 02.16 | Zack Greinke is not unique. He hates traffic as much as anyone transplanted to Southern California. In fact, after signing with the Dodgers as a free agent this winter, he wanted to live on a beach. But the thought of fighting the traffic to Dodger Stadium on a regular basis was so unappealing he looked into another option -- taking a helicopter to the park. "I did. I looked into it but I don't think you can land at the stadium," Greinke said. "It's not as easy as it sounds." Nor is Greinke unique in dealing with social anxiety disorder.

**** up, fruitcup. Millions of Angelenos deal with traffic every day and they aren't getting paid millions to do so.

Buy you a limousine and hire a gang member as your driver.

When Tom Monahagn owned the Tigers he would use his helicopter from Ann Arbor to Tiger Stadium and everyone thought he was an **** for doing so !!

Calfornia highways and traffic are the worst in the country...that being said dude you can hire someone to drive you to the park.

How about having a Limousine drive you? Sit in the back, relax, read something. Be ready to go when you get there. You DID just sign a contract for almost $150 Million over 6 years. Certainly you can afford a Limo service, correct?

Hopefully he wasn't being serious.

Read the entire article before you post. At the end it said that Greinke has a 'social anxiety disorder'. While he was with the Royals, he almost gave up his career because of it. That is why I was suprised to he went to LA. I thought he would stay with small market teams.
