Sources: Zack Greinke traded to Brewers

Quote:
Former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke has been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney on Sunday morning.

In the deal, the Royals are reportedly acquiring Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain, shortstop Alcides Escobar and pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress for the 27-year-old Greinke, 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA in 2010 after winning the 2009 Cy Young.

The Brewers were expected to receive another major leaguer in the deal. Jim Breem of the blog "Bernie's Crew" reported that player to be shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt.

Greinke joins a Brewers rotation that includes Yovani Gallardo, Randy Wolf, Chris Narveson and Shaun Marcum, acquired this month in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays

Amazing. Our rotation is looking good for once.

Its not so much that we didnt get Greinke because face it he wouldnt have been that good in NY...It just the fact that NY has done nothing this offseason and unless they have something huge up there shelve the Yankees are screwed this season

Oh, I'm sure if New York offered their top 20 prospects, including Montero, Seattle would make the deal. But that's about the only way it happens. Seattle has King Felix on the cheap for four more years before the big money starts.

And by that time he'll probably flame out like Doc Gooden.

Yeah, they'll work him into the ground a la Mike Scott and then unload him for a king's ransom as his salary crosses the $20 million line and his arm is deader than the space between Lindsay Lohan's ears.

Whatever, Mark Antanasio is the best small market owner ever. Enjoy it. Easy to forget now, but our payroll under the Selig's was near the bottom of the league if not the absolute bottom for a few years. Stingy bastards.
