08:22 AM ET 04.19 | Now out with a fractured collarbone, Zack Greinke has had some time to reflect on the injury that sidelined him. With his left arm clutched in a sling, Greinke expressed second thoughts about how he braced himself shoulder-first for Carlos Quentin's charge. "You think about how you react (in advance) but when the time comes you're not really thinking straight. You're just kind of reacting," Greinke said. "I never would've planned on doing it that way, that's for sure. I definitely wish I didn't. Everything I do, my natural reaction is to avoid my right arm. At least I was smart enough to do that, but obviously it wasn't the best way to do it. Hopefully I won't do it that way again, but it's almost like I blacked out, honestly."

Instead of playing battering ram you should have played matador, dude.

Ya know, the more I hear about the crap going down between Grienke and Quentin the more I think tha tessentaqilly they both got what they deserved. If they want to let old incidents fester and take things to a personal level that effects (affects?) their teams, then screw both of them.

Quentin currently gets hit more than any guy in the Majors because he hangs out over the inner half of the plate, and that's why he gets hit. If he wants to do that, then he needs to just take his base and ****.

Should've done what most pitchers do, throw your glove at him and retreat, giving your teammates time to catch up. Or work on your headlock skills ala Nolan Ryan.

And he'll have what, 6-8 weeks to think about it? It will be interesting to see what happens the next time someone hits Quentin. I'd like to see someone the size of Sabathia drill the guy.

Maybe Greinke would have fewer second thoughts if some of his first ones were a little better.

Dude seems to me Quintin was OK with being hit.However once Greinke shouted at Quintin he went to the mound.

No one is going to accept being hit & then called *****&^%$.You hit a guy don't be an arrogant **** about it.

Watch the tape again. Quentin started towards first and then went towards Greinke - and both guys were jawing at each other. Greinke isn't blameless, but Carlos is the real reason **** got real.

I said that on another thread. if CC plunked him, I'm sure he would have gladly taken first without the menacing look. I hope everyone just pounds him inside when he gets back.

Agreed. It looks like Carlos told him he did it on purpose and Grienke told him that that was a load of BS, and then Carlos lost his $h!t.
