    Zack Greinke's asking price is.........

    John Perrotto of Baseball Prospectus reports that Zack Greinke is looking for a six-year, $150 million contract in free agency.
    As Perrotto reported over the weekend when he floated Josh Hamilton's asking price, he was told what Greinke is seeking by "someone who knows these things." Greinke reportedly turned down an offer of just over $100 million from the Brewers prior to the trade deadline. He might not get $150 million, but the righty will net a deal richer than any other pitcher this winter. The Angels, Dodgers, Rangers and Brewers are expected to be in the running for him.
    Lmaoooooooo
    and with the 12th pick, The New York Football Giants select ......Odell Beckham Jr, Wide Reciever from Louisana State University

    My guess is more along 5/95, which quite frankly is too much for me given his past and given that he seems to just completely give up on certain starts when things don't go his way.

    He would not accept this and will get more.

    but I agree that one of the LA teams will sign him for more than he's worth

    Watch, we will reach 450 mil payroll this season

    **** it, they will raise the prices of the tickets anyway. Might as well we have real players on the field. I gotta admit, we have one of the cheapest tickets for a big market.

    For some reason I just remembered how disappointed I am and was that Cole Hamels didn't let himself hit FA. Id give 6/150 for him in FA...

    Greinke is an interesting case and I won't guess on what he'll get. That said, it's going to be much more than 5/95 and most likely deservedly so. I would looooove to see him on the Dodgers behind Kershaw and in front of Beckett and Billingsley. That 1-2 would be unreal, and to back it up with quality after that...

    My sleeper team for him is the Blue Jays.

    This would be awesome. I dream of Greinke coming to the Jays, dude's a stud and I would be ecstatic with a Greinke-Morrow 1-2 punch and Romero having a chance to find himself again. We need a TORP pitcher here.

    Uh, Cole Hamels got 6 yrs/$144 million. Considering he is the only legit ace on the market, why wouldn't he ask for something similar?

    Not really. The Jays just got Aviles then dumped him 2 weeks later to save what is essentially peanuts. I'm talking about a few million bucks here. We have one of the richest owners on the planet but we have bean counters at the top. The Jays aren't sleepers, they're completely comatose.

    Edit-I should also point out that Greinke actually blocked a trade to the Jays a few years ago. Not that he wouldn't pitch here but because of who's in the division. He didn't want to pitch in the microscope that is New York and Boston(anxiety). We'll see if that's changed because if he's looking for that kind of cash, he sure as hell isn't getting it from a small market team.

    LMAO


    You gotta be fkin kidding me! 25 million a year....I REALLY hope there isn't a team that stupid....

    Can't believe we live in a time where a GOOD pitcher actually thinks he can command 25 million a year. I wouldn't pay anywhere near 20 million for him.

    But hey, it was a good laugh.
