Jon Heyman of reported earlier today that the Brewers offered Zack Greinke a five-year, $100-plus million contract extension sometime within the past few weeks. Greinke didn’t deny it when asked by Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel before tonight’s game.

“I can say Heyman is pretty accurate with what he’s saying, but nothing else,” said Greinke.

Heyman’s report also mentioned that all indications are Greinke will not accept the offer. However, the impending free agent wouldn’t quite confirm that part.

“I can’t say anything about that. I just gave you that one thing. I figured that was as good as I could do.”

Greinke was skipped in the starting rotation this week in an effort to recharge his batteries, but he is expected to return Tuesday night against the Phillies. With the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline looming, there’s a chance it could be his final start in a Brewers’ uniform.

    It’s zack being zack. no filters with him, he’s just being himself. i wouldn’t read much more into it than what he says. the guy isn’t mentally strong enough to try to play coy games with everyone, he says what he’s thinking. certainly couldn’t handle a major market. atlanta, tampa, and because of their awesome and supportive fans, st. louis, comes to mind.

      Trouble is he’s mentally stronger than most any dipshit reporter. Read the reports from those he will talk to; he fucks with the rest.

      The guy has social anxiety disorder which has no effect on his mental capacity. What an alarmingly ignorant comment.
