I'm probably in the minority here, but I would see signing Greinke to a long term contract as a disaster. First, IMO, he's not a big game pitcher. I see him as a #2 SP at best. Second, I wouldn't want to invest 100M+ in a player that really isn't any better than we already have in the system. We don't have an unlimited payroll and we'll need to use that money to try to hold on to Wieters and some others. Besides, he'll cost us a draft choice and our farm system is almost barren aside from pitching.
If I could get Greinke for ONE year I'd be happy to meet his plane and drive him to the hotel. Five or six years at the salary he'll eventually sign for. Pass.
