Money means nothing to the owners of Los Doyers.

It's pretty entertaining to watch.

Possible bad contract after bad contract. Greinke can do well there but I feel they'll overpay him to lure him in from another team.

Greinke is great pitcher but he's not in the same league as Felix, Verlander, Kershaw, Weaver and even CC.

So what's everyone thinking with regards to contract terms?

I think something similar to Hamel's extension. 5 years, $100 million.

He'll be overpayed. Overrated pitcher, IMO.

I think he gets Cliff Lee-type money.


6 years 140 mill ballpark.

The numbers don't back up these assertions:

If the Angels don't re-sign him, their staff looks very unproven.

Baseball executives see star free-agent righthander Zack Greinke landing a deal for at least six years and perhaps as much as $25 million a year, which could bring Greinke's total haul to $150 million.

The presence of both Los Angeles teams in the bidding is likely to benefit Greinke, who should easily set a record for pay for a right-handed pitcher.
Gotta figure LAAAAAAAAA signs Sanchez or Lohse if Greinke doesn't sign with them.

I wouldn't pay Greinke more than 18/yr.

**** no. Leave him alone, Dodgers. The guy had one truly dominant year and he's asking for $25 million a year?

The Angels, once considered the favorite to keep free-agent pitcher Zack Greinke, are now unlikely to sign him, according to sources.

The Greinke market is beginning to play out and, as colleague Jon Heyman reported over the weekend, the 29-year-old right-hander could be setting up to sign a record contract. The Angels, who once regarded signing Greinke as their top offseason priority, simply don't seem willing to provide that.

Greinke has drawn strong interest from the Dodgers, who are operating under different spending limits than the Angels (or just about any other team). The Rangers are also known to be interested.

And the Angels, who still don't have a No. 3 starter behind Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson?

"It won't be Greinke," said one person familiar with their plans.

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal
Hearing Greinke will end up at 6/150, as @JonHeymanCBS reported. Outrageous? Perhaps. But Hamels got 6/144, and wasn't a free agent.

I wonder if Anaheim will try and bring Haren back then. That starting staff went from "best in the league" at the beginning of last season to a huge question mark in about 9 months.

He's a free agent after they declined a gigantic 2013 club option.

Incorrect.

Better than Justin Verlander & Felix Hernandez. K/9 of 8.75? Better than Roy Halladay & Jered Weaver. K/BB of 3.86? Better than CC Sabathia & Matt Cain. By just about any measure, Greinke is one of the ten best starting pitchers in baseball.

And it gets better. No pitcher is completely without injury risk, simply due to the demands of the position. But you’d be hard-pressed to find a better candidate to give you 200 innings a year than Greinke. Over the last five years, he’s made at least 32 starts and thrown 200 or more innings every single season other than 2011, and that was because of a freak injury where he broke some ribs playing basketball. Just look at his Baseball Prospectus injury card; other than the ribs, he missed a few days with right shoulder inflammation in 2010 and two weeks in camp that year with dental surgery. In a big league career dating back to 2004, that’s it.

Based on the Posey avatar and his hatred for the Dodgers, this one doesn't seem too difficult to figure out.
