Dodgers Sign Free Agent Zack Greinke!
The Dodgers have won the Zack Greinke sweepstakes. They have agreed with him on a 6-year deal worth a reported $147 million. Notice, by the way, that I didn't refer to Greinke as an "ace" pitcher, because on our team he is #2 in the rotation behind Clayton Kershaw. Now let's see if we can also sign Hyun Jin Ryu. Then we're really have a starting rotation to be feared... Update: And we managed to sign Ryu before today's 5pm eastern time deadline. Fear our starting rotation! Update (12/10/12): In other baseball news, the Rays and Royals made a big trade. "Big Game" James Shields, Wade Davis, and a player to be named later are going to the Royals, and top prospect Wil Myers (who is awesome), a good pitching prospect, and other minor leaguers are going to the Rays. Myers should be in the lineup this year and start mashing immediately.
