Greinke

It appears that Zach Greinke is now a Brewer. Still not confirmed, and not sure on the details. My opinion on the deal hinges greatly on whether Jake Odorizzi was included.


ESK edit: deal confirmed

Brewers get: Zack Greinke, Yuniesky Betancourt, $2 million to buy out Betancourt

Royals get: Cain, Escobar, Odorizzi, Jeffress (PTBN instead of Jeffress)


I'm smitten


Paul Edit

After thinking it over, screw Odorizzi. Love the deal. Love it.

The only place I see it reported is onmilwaukee.com and they say Odorizzi is included.

Tom Haurdicourt is saying that Escobar, Cain, Odorizzi and Jeffress are gone, while the Brewers got Greinke, Betancourt, and $2 million.

That's a serious "win now or else" deal.

Latest update - instead of Jeffress gone, it's the famous Player to be Named. Is there anybody left in the farm to be named? :-)

I love it. After thinking it over I'm a huge fan.

I guess there wasn't anybody left in the farm system - the official list includes Jeffress.

The Brewers had better make it at least to meeting the Phillies in the playoffs this coming season.
