    They're actually pretty similar. (Averages from 2010-2011)

    IP 225 ERA 3.17 FIP 3.25 K/9 8.3 BB/9 2.4 (Sabathia)
    IP 201 ERA 3.83 FIP 3.16 K/9 8.7 BB/9 2.3 (Greinke)

    But I wouldnt want to give that kind of money to either of those pitchers. Kershaw, Verlander, and Hernandez are guys I would consider giving 150M

    In an update on his previous report, Heyman writes that a third team could be involved, but that people most familiar with the situation expect the Dodgers or Rangers to sign Greinke for $160MM+. Some have speculated that number could reach as high as $175MM. The Rangers' talks with Josh Hamilton appear to be on hold while they pursue Greinke.

    Honestly, at this point I'd rather sign Anibal Sanchez. Him and Greinke have essentially been the same pitcher the last 3 years. The only difference is Sanchez will make A LOT less $ than Greinke which still allows the Angels to go out and sign another back end starter like Jackson and a reliever like Adams.

    According to Jim Duquette on the radio this morning, the Angels are still big players in this.

    Remember last offseason, when we got Pujols and Wilson, and how awesome that was?


    Sigh.

    While the Angels remain in touch with Greinke, an Angels person tells Heyman a Greinke signing would be more shocking than their Albert Pujols deal was a year ago.
    I don't buy that

    Yeah I don't buy that either. Unless they mean that we are going to drop 170M on him. Then yes, a bigger surprise then the Pujols it would be.

    An Angels person told Danny Knobler of CBS Sports a $160MM+ offer for Greinke is "going to blow us out of the water."
    While the Angels remain in touch with Greinke, an Angels person tells Heyman a Greinke signing would be more shocking than their Albert Pujols deal was a year ago.
    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com notes (via Twitter) that while the Greinke sweepstakes seem to be a battle between the Dodgers and Rangers, a third team could certainly enter the fray at any time. Could that team be the Angels? Manager Mike Scioscia told Jim Bowden on MLB Network Radio that L.A. is still involved in negotiations (Twitter link). However, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (via Twitter) that the Angels appear to be more focused on the tier of free agent pitchers below Greinke. Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times agrees, tweeting that it's "highly unlikely" the Angels exceed $20MM+ annually for a pitcher.

    I still think Zack isn't the kinda I guy where it's all about the money. I still think we have a chance to sign Zack. Only with a 6yr 120M offer. I feel that's our highest bid.

    Guise. An Angel spoke to me last night. He said we're out of the Greinke running.

    Maybe it was Angel Pagan or Angel Hernandez. Those are Angel People.

    The Blanton deal basically just guaranteed Greinke getting the $ he wants from some team.
