[QUOTE]Have you guys seen Greinke pitch? He's very very good.

I'm not questioning Greinke's "stuff" (it's terrific), I just don't think it's a good idea to trade any type A prospects for a 2 month rental with documented anxiety issues, especially when they are in a precarious position to make the playoffs right now, to say the least. He'll likely command 100 plus million this winter and there are no guarantees that he'll want to sign here. If for some reason the front office decides he's a fit and they can move AT LEAST one of the contracts of Beckett, Lackey, Crawford, then go after him this winter, but don't give up prospects for the guy. Also, his price tag just grew significantly with the Phillies keeping Lee, Garza being injured and the Marlins asking for the moon with Johnson. Let someone else overpay for the guy.

Rickie Weeks is signed through 2014 with vesting option for 2015, so Pedroia isn't a fit. Albers has zero value to a non-contending team and they are high on their top catching prospect, Martin Maldanado. The Brewers will want young, cost controlled players or at least one A type prospect for Greinke.

[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Greinke : Your basing this on 16.2 IPs of playoff pitching, and 2 IPs against NY in the new stadium. What a tool.
Posted by harv53[/QUOTE]So you just ignore his history?You ignore 15-0 at home and 10-9 on the road with an ERA of about 4.40?Ignore 6.48 in the playoffs?Ignore a road record v the ALE of 1-12?Being number-phobic is no way to go through life.
