Greinke to the Diamondbacks - 6 years $206M

Postby David » Sun Nov 22, 2015 7:39 pm

Why wasn't there one of these already?

So there's been talk of the Cubs being interested, possibly more interested than in Price. There was also that report that Greinke probably won't be back in LA because of a stance against guys with a certain amount of innings logged or something, but that's probably just posturing.

Some of the rumors surrounding him are summarized pretty well at this link

But my real reason for making this thread is how hilarious it is to picture Greinke in one of Rizzo's disco parties

He's such an odd dude. Is he a guy that will buy into some of Joe's shenanigans? He's not a dick or anything, he just seems to be a loner. Oh well, I've got no doubt we'll do the necessary homework. Adding either of him or Price would be awesome.

i believe he was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder

i guess it's terrible for me to laugh at but it has manifested itself in hilarious ways in his interactions with media and such over the years

Yeah, he was. He took a full season off because of that/depression.

I'm not even sure which of those 2 I hope gets him. I'd pull for the Dodgers if I thought they'd leave their rotation alone at that point, but I doubt they would and I don't want to see them get him and make a trade for one of the Indian guys or someone else.

The Dodgers are going to be good regardless. Let him sign there, and hopefully the Giants strike out on a TOR arm again this year.

On the social anxiety. My roommate's friend in college was from KC. When Greinke was with the Royals this guy saw him at a mall and went up to say hi. Greinke almost immediately asked for his phone number and asked him if he would be his friend. This guy was a huge Royals fan, but the way Greinke asked creeped him out so much he gave him a fake number.

I don't know why the media keeps projecting him in the low 20's.

Guess we'll see but I doubt the market values him that lowly. If it does, I suppose it says something about how his defensive value is viewed.
