    Zack Greinke in Cincinnati?

    Strange place for a trade rumor, but from the Cincinnati Business Courier:

    Greinke is a great target -- he has stated that he doesn't like the scrutiny he would encounter pitching in a big market, so there is a decent chance that the Reds could sign him to an extension.

    I think the Brewers made this up in an effort to try to drive up the price for obtaining Greinke.

    Re: Zack Greinke in Cincinnati?

    Doesn't seem likely (especially given the source), but I'll play:

    How great would it be to have Cueto, Latos and Greinke headlining the rotation for the next 3-5 years?

    What would it cost in prospects and money? Would they deal inside the division? How much cheaper (if at all) would he be than Hamels, who seems destined for a big market and a huge deal?

    I'm guessing they'd have their pick of one of our AA pitchers + a next-tier hitting prospect like Lutz, H.Rodriguez or Gregorius + a lottery ticket like Duran or Y-Rod. And that may not be enough.

    The story says the Brewers are looking for a shortstop.

    And everyone though Walt was crazy for holding onto Paul Janish. Janish for Grienke and we are printing world series tickets for the next 15 years

    I'm not against Hamilton in a deal for Greinke, but not as a rental. They would have to be ready to extend him. I still want a bat added to the lineup also.

    Especially if the Cardinals have inquired.

    Seriously, DiDi + their choice of one Pensacola pitcher seems like a reasonably fair deal. Throw in their choice of Duran or Y-Rod if necessary.

    I'd be willing to include Homer too.

    Sure why not- as long as we could extend Greinke.

    Phil Rodgers said the Brewers would be looking for a shortstop. Billy Hamilton may have enough panache to acquire Greinke by himself. If so, that's certainly an option.

    However, most reports insist he's not going to able to stick at SS.

    If DiDi Gregorius is the target, there would have to be something else going to the Brew Crew. He's simply not enough, nor is he particularly close, IMO. Maybe a Gregorius/ Soto/ Hoover or Joseph deal gets it done.

    If so, that's not bad at all.

    What's interesting is whether Milwaukee will ask for Cozart. He might get the deal done by himself; what's more, I think I'd pull that trigger, were I Jocketty.

    I wonder if Corcino, Hamilton and Y-Rod would get it done? It would only make sense if Greinke was willing to sign an extension. And I wonder if the Reds could even afford it.

    It would be an amazing haul though. The Reds would be well positioned to make the playoffs for years to come. If they make the playoffs, they would be in such great shape.

    Re: Zack Greinke in Cincinnati?

    Greinke is on track for a $100+ million dollar contract. Does anyone really think the Reds can afford him? I'd love it, but they've already committed massive amounts of dollars to just a few guys.

    I think for a player like Greinke they would certainly try to find a way. All up to how much Castellini is willing to open up the wallet to win.
