    This per Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun.

    This would make sense after the Arroyo extension.

    The Twins, Rangers, Braves, Reds, Mariners, and Nationals have all inquired about Greinke according to Elliott.

    Yonder, Wood, and Mesaraco tempt the pallet?

    I doubt they'd have much interest in Yonder since they have Butler, Hosmer, and the Kia monster. And I hope Mes isn't dealt.

    I think two of our young starting pitchers would probably be part of any potential deal for Greinke.

    Moore loves Ms castoffs. Who knows what strange things he might do?

    Can we merge this and the "What do you want for Christmas?" thread?

    No one is untouchable in reality, but as of today Travis Wood is on my top-5 list of "Guys I Will Not Trade".

    They would probably be interested in Billy Hamilton.

    Re: Reds Inquire On Greinke

    Sorry, but considering his salary and emotional issues, I just don't see Greinke as the guy you empty the farm for. He's desirable, but he shouldn't cost more than what A. Gonzalez brought, probably less.

    Agreed. I think a Wood, Mesoraco, Alonso deal is way way too much to pay for Greinke.

    What if Grienke meant playoffs in 2011 and 2012?

    Guarantee that in writing, and sure, I'd trade Mes and Wood for him.

    But I think that there are other ways that both make that more likely and are cheaper.
