    Look at what CC got, Greinke should get at least that plus you add in the fact that Greinke isn't a walking heart attack waiting to happen.

    He gon' get paid.

    [QUOTE=Cracka2HI!;24240231]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.[/QUOTE]

    Gonzalez could bat right handed and put up better numbers then James Loney... Thats already better... And what makes you think the dodgers still cant afford those guys? Nobody knows how much money they have, or are willing to throw around... They could sign Hamilton then send Ethier to Tampa for Shields... You never know what can happen with the Dodgers owners now...

    But he clearly could handle it if he wanted to.

    I get that. Just making a point that Grienke could very likely handle any atmosphere at this point. If I was a player I would want to play there either. You guys can be brutal!!!

    There is no chance Andre Ethier is playing for the Tampa Bay Rays in a move for James Shields.


    none, unless the dodgers buy the Rays a new stadium in the process.


    Also, fwiw.

    James Loney career as a dodger: .284/.341/.423
    Adrian career as a dodger: .297/.344/.441

    I'm sure Adrian will end up being loads better than Loney, and he was better in the tiny sample size, and is clearly a top flight level hitter. But I wanted to point it out.

    He's not in LA. Anaheim isn't a big market.

    People are laughing at this??
    Seems about right for a top notch ace. He's 29 contract will be up by the time he's 35.
    It's not like he's a low end ace.

    If you believe he is a top notch ace sure.....

    In my opinion guys like Verlander, Weaver and King Felix are top notch aces. By comparison all 3 of the above mentioned pitchers got a 5 year deal worth around 80 million. Granted these were signed in 2010 and 2011 but when you consider inflation of a players value over the past 2 years I think the $100/5 is fair and puts him on par with the elite pitchers. $150/5 is just ridiculous. Afterall who would you rather have Verlander, Weaver or Felix at $80 million or Greinke at double that?

    All three of the above re-signed with their teams before they reached free agency and Greinke is the best starter on the open market this year.

    He will get paid vastly better than all three, regardless if he is better than them or not.

    It's funny because Greinke is better than Weaver

    Greinke is one best pitchers in the league. He absolutely deserves top dollar.

    Can't compare his contract to Hamels either. Hamels isn't on the open market.
