I'd actually be ecstatic if I were a team that could get him to agree to that.If Grienke is worth 5x110
Id like him on the yankees but not at that price. Enjoy LA.

that means he only wants to go to the dodgers.
If the Dodgers sign Greinke anywhere near his demands they'll be paying around 30-35 mil per year after tax.
I doubt they sign him though, Kershaw still needs to be locked up. I think an outside team like the Brewers could have a good shot. He doesn't really make a ton of sense for most big market teams right now given their payrolls.
He may want 6 X 150 but that doesn't mean he will get it.
I don't see the Dodgers paying anywhere near that. They have said money is not a concern but they still have to lock up Kershaw - he is far more important.
I'm betting Texas and the Anaheim (not LA) Angels will make a run at him. He will pick Texas

Honestly I'm hoping Texas decides to spend some of their Hamilton money on Greinke
That's ace type money. I just don't see him as an ace. I see him as a really good #2.
Since 2008, hes 4 in xFIP(3.26) and 6th in FIP (3.05). Furthermore, he has over 1000 innings pitched - hes in the top 15 in that category.
Realistically, i see him getting anywhere from 20-22 million a year, for over 5-6 years... Hes one of the best pitchers in baseball, and hes going to be paid pretty handsomely

That's ****ing hilarious.
