Clayton Kershaw is not going to win every postseason award. Dodgers teammate Zack Greinke saw to that Tuesday.
Zack Greinke asked out of Kansas City four years ago. He was in the prime of his career. He would not sign a new contract with the Royals because he wanted to win and, as he told anyone who asked, he did not believe the Royals could win.

Zack Greinke has had a season most pitchers would dream of: a career-high 17 wins, fifth-most in the National League. A 2.71 ERA and 207 strikeouts, most since his Cy Young award-winning season with Kansas City in 2009.
This is their postseason to own, a month when Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke can pitch themselves into October lore and fortify their legacies as members of the Los Angeles Dodgers. All they have to do is dominate a few of the best...Show More Summary
