Zack was in the Tweet Seat

I had meant to write about the "Tweet Seat" event the Dodgers held last week for Zack Greinke much earlier than today.  If you don't know, this is a kind of "ask me anything" exchange between a twitter user and a Dodger player.  Last week, following the Greinke press conference at Dodger Stadium they did a short #AskZack dialog on twitter, and I was happy to follow along.

As you might know, the Dodgers had done the same thing for Hyun-Jin Ryu when they held his press conference the day before, and I wrote a post poking fun at some of the ridiculous questions asked then.  See that post here.

I figured following the Greinke "Tweet Seat" event would provide just as many laughs.  Instead, I was bored silly.  Maybe the fact that Ryu's name cast a wider net of goofballs since it's related to a popular video game character had something to do with it.

Anyway, I just didn't run into the same kind of idiocy in the Greinke Tweet Seat as I did in Ryu's.  So, instead, I thought I would share some of the answers Greinke gave to eager fans.  The complete thread is below.

There wasn't really much to learn except that he's an Orlando Magic fan (boo!), and his favorite Dodger is Sandy Koufax (yeah!).  On top of that, he list Adrian Gonzalez as the one player on the Dodgers roster he is most happy not to have to face again.  If you remember back, he said in the press conference that there were two Dodgers on the roster that he had no real plan on how to get out, but refused to name them.  Well, I think it's safe to say that Adrian is one of those Dodgers.
