The samurai Cy Young

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Zack Greinke gave his Cy Young Award to his parents.

He kept the samurai sword.

Greinke isn't even sure where the Cy Young Award is. He has big plans for the sword.

"It's the coolest thing ever," Greinke said today. "It's going to Kansas City with me."

Greinke said the Mizuno equipment company gave him the sword after he won the Cy Young. In a half-hour session with a handful of reporters today, the sword was the one topic that actually got Greinke excited.

"It's just cool," he said.

If getting the sword was the best thing that came out of Greinke's great 2009 season, the worst was the added attention. Greinke is pleasant with reporters, but he'll tell you right away that he doesn't enjoy interviews and would prefer not to be noticed.

He does deal with it better than he once did.

"I look like I'm nervous now, but it's because I'm freezing," he said today, on a chilly morning at the Royals complex.

Greinke said he thinks he can pitch better in 2010 than he did last year, when he was 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA. He said he'd like fewer walks and more strikeouts, and that he wants to improve his changeup (which he called "a work in progress").

Royals pitching coach Bob McClure agreed.

"Basically, I tell him there's always room to improve and get better," McClure said. "You can always get better, knowing hitters better, and preparation."

And if he does get better, maybe there will be another samurai sword next year.
