MILWAUKEE -- Zack Greinke already is paying off for the Milwaukee Brewers.
Team officials say they've added more than 1,500 new season-ticket holders since Sunday's trade with the Kansas City Royals, more than tripling the 400 new account holders the team had added in the first few months of the offseason.
Rick Schlesinger, the Brewers' executive vice president of business operations, says response from fans has exceeded "even our most optimistic expectations." He says the trade also has helped the team's sponsorship and retail sales.
that was already posted. a few more hundred packages isn't much. you think making $1.5mil in ticket sales makes up for the $15mil the brewers added to payroll from the trade?
Zach Greinke: 13.5 mil
Yuniesky Betancourt: 4 mil (6 mil club option in 12 and 2 mil buyout)
Alcides Escobar: .4 mil (assume they all make league minimum, if you know different then correct my math)
Lorenzo Cain: .4 mil
Jake Odorizzi: .4 mil
Jeremy Jeffries: .4 mil
2 million in salary covered by royals
so 13.5+4-2-1.6=13.9 million
and since I think only .4 million was on the Brewers major league salary, they really added about 15.1 to their major league salary. If the other three were on the major league salary feel free to correct me .
I don't know where you get 11.5 from but your not actually looking at the whole trade then and have been misleading people 3 times. That or you fail at math while trying to say someone else's math is wrong :.

And Odorizzi is not on the ML roster so he won't be making anything on the major league payroll but that has really nothing to do with it.

It worked out for Both Teams... and I actually think if Jeffress gets off Drugs and Oraizzi both become servicable pitchers, this could be a steal for the Royals...
