07:26 AM ET 09.02 | Dodgers righty Zack Greinke didn't lose a game in August, and he started out September on the right foot, too. To understand just how well [Greinke] has pitched lately, turn the calendar back to 2009, when he won the American League Cy Young Award with the Kansas City Royals. Greinke went 16-8 with a major league-leading 2.16 ERA that season, beating out Justin Verlander, Roy Halladay, CC Sabathia and Felix Hernandez for the honors. Greinke said he's pitching even better lately. Few could argue after watching Greinke breeze through seven innings Sunday. ... Greinke was asked after the game if he's pitching better than he did in 2009. When it comes to throwing the ball where he wants, definitely, he said. "It's probably the best location I've had for a long period of time," he said.

If Greinke stays hot the Dodgers will have a very good three man pitching rotation in the playoffs.

In other news Chad was overheard saying: "I like clouds because they are fluffy and remind me of pudding......but they scare me during thunderstorms."

Mr. Greinke then donned a tinfoil hat, stripped down to crotchless chaps and sped away from reporters riding a unicycle.

Zack, not Chad.........................Good Lord I need another one-hitter.

That will be the key to their postseason success.

I'd like to beat you with a steel toed boot for using an exclamation point in that sentence.
