Maybe he did help him or maybe not. He fell right back to norms OBP and K/BB wise. He hit harder, sure, but that was expected considering he was rock bottom before hand. I am not sure sure Greer fixed him. That's what "maybe" meant.

He was in the worst funk of his career.
He was sent to Greer, to get turned around.
He his considerably better after working with Greer.



There's evidence that he did help him, but we can ignore it if you'd rather. What would it take to convince you?

If you're only using Grichuk as the measuring stick, you've missed the point.

It is worth noting, however, that Shildt is almost certainly a better bullpen strategist than Matheny by default. Past studies have shown Matheny was the worst bullpen manager in baseball, to the extent that he was deemed worse than a random number generator -- that isn't a joke. Shildt doesn't have to be good at running a 'pen to be a massive upgrade.

From the linked article in the quote (from 2015)
Quote:
The third thing to notice is Mike Matheny, whom BMAR says was actually worse at running his bullpen than a random number generator wearing a warm-up jacket. You might remember Matheny from his odd last act of the 2014 season, which was using struggling starter Michael Wacha, for the first time in weeks, in the ninth inning of a tied elimination game, instead of a rested closer whom he ruled out because of bullpen orthodoxy. If we believe BMAR, the Cardinals would have had better bullpen matchups this season had Matheny made his moves by closing his eyes, spinning around 10 times, and gesturing in the pen’s general direction. (Maybe Matheny’s new iPad will help.) All snark aside, though, these rankings are another reminder that the manager’s impact pales in comparison to the quality of his players. Matheny and the Blue Jays’ John Gibbons may have been among the worst bullpen managers this season, but they didn’t prevent their teams from taking division titles.
