Ex-Pitcher Is No Fan of Zack Greinke

It's not surprising that in the middle of the epic, WWE-style fracas between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday night was Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke.

Sure, it was Greinke getting hit in the head by Ian Kennedy that started the melee, but given dude's track record (the Dodgers starter had already hit two batters earlier in the game and ignited a similar brawl earlier in the season against the San Diego Padres), the guy probably has his fair share of people wanting to hit him.

And it's safe to say that former Diamondbacks reliever Greg Swindell is probably among them.

Not long after heads at Chavez Ravine cooled down, Swindell, who, in 2004 was in camp with Greinke and the Kansas City Royals, hit the Twitters and let his feelings on the 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner be known.

So, yeah, I think it's a safe bet Swindell would've plunked Greinke too if given the chance.
