Just sign him already so we can do something with the Dickey situation.

Hearing greinke deal possible in next couple days.
Let the Dodgers over pay for him.... Greinke is good but he isnt worth that kind of cash.
I say Texas gets him if they get Upton deal done. They will let Hamilton walk. Smart move if they pull that off.
I'm not arguing against you, but a lil bit more pressure pitching for the Dodgers in Los Angeles, compared to Anaheim. I think the pressure comment derives from the LA Times (imo one of the worst newpapers at covering sports).
Greinke is gonna benefit from being the clear best pitcher in a thin market. It is what it is.
I wouldn't be surprised if he goes to Texas. In fact, I'm expecting it.
As for anxiety, LA doesn't have harsh media. People don't follow players home and harass them like on the East Coast. Fans come out in record numbers but are laid back--it's the socal lifestyle. He'd be perfectly fine.
Anaheim isn't in LA btw to a previous poster. Only 30 miles apart but completely different worlds. I've lived in both LA and OC. Completely different.

Source: #Dodgers spoke with Greinke reps today, not clear where talks stand. Plan to sign TWO SPs. Maybe Greinke-Ryu, even Greinke-Sanchez.
