    They're actually another sleeper in this. They could use the starter, he's hidden behind CC so he can just work, and it allows the rest of the rotation to fall in line (Kuroda, Nova/Hughes, Hughes/Pineda after).

    Wow, I just realized Greinke is very underrated. He won't get 6/150 obviously but 6/110-120 isn't impossible. He's a legitimate ace.

    Agreed
    Agreed. He is a very good pitcher, an ace for many teams but he isn't a top 3 in MLB. He is merely the best FA this year. That said, anything over 20 mil. Per year is to much. A 5x85 contract is is more than fair. Unrealistic, but fair

    I would give him an average 20MM per year, at most.

    It's sarcasm, it clearly doesn't matter what size of crowd he pitches in front of.


    Considering he has done it his entire life.

    He COULD possibly get his 6 years and 150 million.

    It seems outrageous...BUT when you think about it...the Yankees want him, the Angels want him, the Rangers want him, I wouldnt be surprised if the Red Sox and the Dodgers want him too....there you go, all the big money teams are after him, so I say...LET THE BIDDING WAR BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!

    New York is rumored to only looking to give people 1 year deals. They supposedly won't go 2 years on Hunter because they want to get under the luxury tax.

    he has social anxiety disorder and doesn't liek the bigger markets. LA is nothing compared to NY. he wont be going there anytime soon

    I don't think he'll go to New York because they don't have the cap room under the luxury tax to sign him.

    But he clearly could handle it if he wanted to.

    I think Jeffy is right on this one. Yes, he had issues earlier in his career but after having a ridiculously awesome season in 2009 he has been under the spotlight and still performed well. At this point he has proven he can handle the pressure.

    I see him signing a contract around 6 years, 132 million. Thats 22 million a year. I think thats pretty fair considering what other top pitchers received.
