He could've easily avoided that confrontation by running away. You say he was being attacked. Quentin hadn't even gotten to the mound yet. I could see your point if Greinke was getting jumped from behind and didn't see it coming. Instead, what did he do? He stood there, watched him come towards him, dropped his glove, lowered his shoulder, and absorbed the hit.So like you said Quentin hit himself with that pitch...Greinke hit himself with Quentin's shoulder.
