    That price tag sounds like something the Dodgers can certainly afford. I have to wonder if they might be regretting the Red Sox trade now. Especially Crawford's contract. Hamilton's asking price is something the Dodgers could have afforded too...if they were just a little more patient. They could have signed Grienke and Hamilton and moved Ethier to 1B and had an OF spot open in the future for Puig or Pederson. I really think A-Gone has to return to 35+ HR and 115+ RBI for 2-3 years for that trade to pay off.

    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.
    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.

    dunno why the responses are what they are,thats pretty inline with the going rate for similar tier pitchers(hamels 6/144,cc 5/122) and is pretty close to what he'll get offered

    I think you are safe. No need to get pissed because they arn't resigning him! Sorry.
    What about some sleepers like Boston or Balitmore or someone like that, I don't know I just know how these things work someone swoops in and gets him that is completly off the radar.

    They guy has dominant stuff, and we can't really judge him against guys who have actually made it to the playoffs.

    it's not surprising for any player's asking price to be higher than what he expecting to sign for. it's negotiating. one starts high, the other starts low, they negotiate for something in the middle.
    I don't think Greinke deserves Hamels type money, but still upper teens in annual salary. Hamels for each of the last 3 years has had an ERA around 3 or lower.

    He deserves to be paid like a very good starter, not like a lights out Ace. Between 16-20 over 6 years is fair.

    Yankee will sign him! Also look for Beckett to find his way back to the AL.

    To answer your question: I don't think he deserves the same money that Hamels got at all. Hamels has only had 1 sub par season since he came up and has won a World Series MVP. I think Greinke has all the talent in the world, but those two pitchers are not comparable in terms of the money each should get.
