He did welcome it, but there are only a handful of times that I can think of where a pitcher has ever actually ran away. I think Greinke was trying to get low enough to sort of tackle Quentin or at least flip him. That is stupid but I do get where a professional athlete really doesn't want to run away from a guy charging him.
