Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times has his ear to the ground regarding Zack Greinke, and he says the Dodgers and Rangers look like the “best bets” for Zack Greinke, with the Angels as a “dark horse.”

Hope for the Angels’ sake that they’re not that dark. Having lost Dan Haren and even Ervin Santana, they could kinda use some pitching.

    Only during the winter meetings do $25M players get considered “necessary” yet we are quick to trash teams when they are stuck with Barry Zito, Ryan Howard, A-Rod, Pujols etc. and write articles about how the teams they left behind are so much better off.

    Angels obviously need Greinke back but let’s not act like them refusing to match whatever the Dodgers throw out is crazy or something.

    25 to 30 million is good for zack. Loved him here in kc and he is still in his 20’s so you can give him a 10 year deal and not worrie to much. I say shock them all zack come back to kc where we need you and if you do it just may help us reach the promise land.

      Ah yes, the worry-free 10 year guaranteed contract for pitchers, who doesn’t love those?

    The Dodgers will overpay for him and land him.

    Rangers will attempt to trade for an arm before coughing up that much for an ace with stage fright.
