    Those kinds of contracts are typically when you lock down your younger players to long term contracts. Signing someone who is close to 30 to a long term deal, is rarely going hold their value to the end of the contract. Even if Greinke signs a 6 year deal, by the last year of the contract, it is highly likely that he won't be the same pitcher that he was, when he first signed the deal. I am not averse to signing someone like Greinke to a 6 year deal, but it would have to be front loaded.

    I think the concerns about players not being worth their contracts is a bit overemphasized because we're coming out of an extended period of stagnant salaries. When salaries are inflating, as they did in the 1990s/early 00s, and appear to be doing now, there's a much better chance of recouping strong value out of the end of the contract.

    I want Greinke simply because there is no pitcher close to him in next year's market. I'd wait on Hamilton and hopefully make a play for Cano instead. I don't want Ellsbury, too injury prone.

    That's how I feel about Greinke. I'm all about waiting to add some expensive players until you are more competitive, but he wont be there. Lincecum next year could be an interesting target

    Well if we ship a pitcher off to KC in the next 48 hours or so this'll be real interesting.

    Grow some.
