No big surprise.
Zack Greinke will opt out of a contract that has $71 million over three years remaining, according to sources, and one GM suggested he should get multiple offers for $125 million over five years, at a minimum, with the likely winning bid at about $150 million over five years, or perhaps even more.
That is even better than the $147 million, six-year deal he got three years ago from LA. That was a deal that turned out to work for everyone.
Texas, which could lose freee agent Yovani Gallardo, finished second last time for Greinke and was willing to offer a similar number to the Dodgers' winning bid. Atlanta seems to make geographic sense as they train in Greinke's home area of Orlando (and play not too far away) but he may be a bit pricey for them.
