Zack Greinke joined the Royals this season after originally playing for them from 2004—10.
Normally, a pitcher would be quite excited to be named the starting pitcher on Opening Day. But, when asked about his reaction to being named the starting pitcher on Opening Day, Greinke didn’t express much emotion.
“Uh,” Greinke paused. “Probably the same as my reaction right now.”
The pitcher kept a straight face during his answer and spoke with a monotone voice.
The clip of the 38-year-old has since gone viral with fans loving Greinke’s lack of enthusiasm.
Some fans and reporters commented on the pitcher’s answer, poking fun at Greinke for being so stoic.
