That's an interesting opinion.

I can't see a situation where he'd opt out, unless for personal reasons.

Crazy.
Even then, if they wanted to trade a guy like Capuano or Harang I'm sure they could do it. Both have one more year remaining with buyouts present on their deals. In this market, neither would be bad options.

I'm sure my Twins would take Capuano.

The Dodgers were noted as shopping Harang and Capuano at the Winter Meetings. One or both will most likely be gone by the time the season starts.

More importantly from an earlier thread I made:

top-10 Greinke quotes! (when he was a Royal)

Quote:
10. "I could hit me if someone were on base. It wouldn't be easy, but I could do it. If no one were on base, I wouldn't care as much, so I could get me out."

9. Upon hearing then-GM Allard Baird was going to watch him throw: "And you're gonna be impressed,"

8. "I'd say the average person wouldn't eat a Chipotle burrito and still do his running, full speed, like me. That's why they call me special."

7. "I was giving Brian Bannister all the credit for being the best-hitting pitcher on the team, until today. Now, I've got my confidence back. They're throwing me sliders, and it doesn't matter."

6. "For the first month of the season, (Billy Butler) has definitely been an above-average first baseman. That's hard for me to say because I never thought anyone would say that but him and his family."

5. Two years ago, with Alex Gordon struggling, Greinke pulled him into the video room to show him a clip of Greinke hitting his home run. "In case you forgot," Greinke said, "this is what a home run looks like."

4. "Nice effort by the defense. They didn't get tired of running after balls to the wall. I was pretty impressed by that."

3. To Jeremy Affeldt after Affeldt gave up a homer on what he thought was a good pitch. "Really, I went back to the clubhouse and looked at the pitch on video. It was a really bad pitch. Right over the middle of the plate, and you got it up. I mean it was a bad pitch."

Affeldt: "Thanks, Zack."

Zack: "Right down the middle. I could have hit it out."

Affeldt: "Thanks, Zack."

Zack: "Yeah."

2. On making the Sports Illustrated cover: "There's a lot more interesting stuff going on right now. They should have something else on the cover. Playoff basketball or something else. So it's a mistake. They'll probably sell their least amount of magazines in a long time -- except when NASCAR was on the cover."

1. On hoping President Obama would cuss him out at the All-Star game: "Because none of the White Sox guys like me. So I was hoping that he'd recognize me and be like, 'You punk, I hate you.' But he didn't do that."

Yes, they will trade for Victorino so he can play rover between Kemp, Ethier and Crawford.

Greinke is a top-10 pitcher imo, but not top-5.

What's the o/u on months until Grienke and his mouth get him into a clubhouse fight with Captain Fried Chicken? Big money, big egos in that Dodger clubhouse. Their payroll is probably higher than the value of Dodger Stadium at this point.

The amount of money the Dodgers have greed to pay over the past few months is insane. I'm really glad the Rangers didn't drop this much on Greinke.
