Milwaukee Brewers starter Zach Greinke says Chris Carpenter’s tough guy act is fake.”[The Brewers] think his presence, his attitude out there sometimes is like a phony attitude,” Greinke told the AP today. “And then he yells at people. He just stares people down and stuff. And most pitchers just don’t do that.”

“A lot of guys on our team don’t like Carpenter,” he said.

The teams have met 19 times this year, so it’s understandable that they’d both have some bad blood.

Game 1 of the NLCS starts this afternoon in Milwaukee.
