Default Zack Greinke in Dodger blue?

Dylan Hernadez
Source: Dodgers closing in on a six-year, $145-million deal with Zack Greinke.

The deal between the Dodgers and Greinke isn't done.

Default Greinke to sign with Dodgers

Per MLBTR, LA Times

6 years, $145 Million. He'll do well in Dodger Stadium.

Expected. Would the Sox consider a deal with the Angels involving Floyd?

Second largest contract for a pitcher in league history.

I bet the Sox will consider a lot of deals with Floyd with a number of teams. I wonder if such a deal won't come until later in the offseason, however, when the market for SPs settles a bit.

As for Greinke, he seems like a good fit in Dodger Stadium behind Kershaw.

Dodgers could take the Highest payroll title away from the yankees, who have had it since 98, IIRC. Those guys just can't get rid of that TV cash fast enough.

Imagine what this deal does for guys like King Felix, Verlander, and Kershaw who are far superior IMO.

The thing is that their impending TV deal is currently undervalued by the reported $6 billion estimate.

If Reinsdorf sells the team, please let a hedge fund with billions buy them!

What's interesting to me is that the story said that the deal with Fox is far from done, they just have an exclusive negotiating window that will soon end. The Dodgers could end with more than that.

Even if that happens, I doubt the Sox will have the revenue to look like the Dodgers.

Time Warner cable in SoCal is the one really pushing for the Dodgers rights to go along with the Lakers property which they already have.

The final winning bid will be astronomical in the range of 250 million per season to the franchise and that's before even one ticket has been sold.

The rich get righer because they know how the game is played.

I think the Sox rights come open in 2016....and I agree they might get an increase but nothing like, not even close to what the Rangers, Angels, Dodgers are getting and what the Yankees / Red Sox will get when they hit the market.
