Washington is rumored to be a player for Greinke. Can you fathom a rotation of Strasburg, Gio, Greinke, and Zimmerman. That would be SICK. I doubt LA will let that happen though. They are just going to write a blank check for him.

Doesn't Greinke have social anxiety problems? I don't know if he really cares about getting the biggest paycheck from LA and having to live up to it.

And to add to that.. I think him nestling in among Washington's great staff would be perfect for him.

Why on earth would you even trade a top tier pitching prospect for Denard Span...OF like Span can be found relatively easily. If we want to keep building around the starting rotation, it would be dumb to make that kind of move. in a couple years were going to be down to Cain and Bumgarner. Right now Stratton and Crick are kind of important pieces.

At AT&T, Denard Span is a .270 hitter with less than 5 HR, 40 RBIs, maybe 20 SB, good D, average OB%.

I agree that I wouldnt trade a top pitching prospect for Span. Now, if Michael Morse had several years left before Free Agency I would deal Crick for him. Power hitting outfielders are just so hard to find now and cost SO much in FA. He would be perfect for our LF spot. As I said from the beginning though, I dont think he will be moved and that they will let LaRoache go.

I think if Morse had several years left under team control, theres no way WAS is even talking about moving him.

As long as the Dodgers dont get Greinke, im fine with wherever he goes. I wish he wouldve just stayed in KC to begin with.

He is going to get a huge paycheck whereever he goes and will feel some pressure from the contract. In LA at least he wouldnt be the #1 pitcher.

yeah, he has some kind of emotional health issues. not sure if that means anxiety problems, or depression, or what. It might end up costing him some money. Nobody wants to invest a record amount of cash in an emotionally unstable player.
The Dodgers can write checks all they want. They lack team cohesion..

They should pay the fans to stay a full 9 innings. Or start using actual meat for Dodger dogs.

Excellent! With the money they take in they could afford to give every man, woman and child who attends a game an industrial strength gas mask.
