    Greinke and Dodgers expected to agree to 6/145M deal soon

    According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers are nearing a six-year, $145 million contract with free agent right-hander Zack Greinke.

    24M AAV seems like an obscene amount for someone who has posted ERA+'s of 100, 103, and 114 since his insane 2009 CY Young campaign where he posted a 205 ERA+

    The good part for the Dodgers is that they held him to 6 years and will only be 29 on opening day.

    that's a pretty sweet deal...As long as Greinke doesn't implode during this contract and puts up solid numbers, he could have a chance to get another lucrative deal on top of the one he's about to sign.

    What's their payroll for next year? They have to way above 200 million by now.

    That is far from up to date. Add Greinke for 24, whatever that Japanese player gets, arbitration eligible cases.....

    So it is roughly 208 without arbitration and the Japanese player.....and whoever else they may add.

    It's around 228 million. I'd bet they're not done yet, I could see them going after a set up man too or a catcher somewhere.

    Greinke makes 7 SPs, all of whom make at least $5M.

    So if they give Greinke 145M, how much do they have to give to Kershaw to lock him up? He is a FA after 2014

    Re: Greinke and Dodgers expected to agree to 6/145M deal soon

    wow, im really confused by their team now. could someone suggest a fielding layout?

    Dee Gordon at SS, Hanley 3B or SS, and for 2B they have Punto/Hairston/Uribe/Luis Cruz

    And, as someone mentioned above, 7 starters, and all of them are ML: Kershaw, Billingsley, Beckett, Lilly, Capuano, Harang, and Grienke.

    1 trillion? I bet if you extrapolate it, it would be close when the time comes.

    I'd have to imagine they are going to look to make some deals to balance out their roster and drop some payroll. Good test for their FO

    Thanks to the Dodgers we're getting an idea of what the Yankees spending would be if they didn't shelter revenues through YES

    It helps the Dodgers haven't spent any funds on luxury tax too. By the way, it's a huge overpay for a pitcher that's not great.

    The Dodgers are going to pay a 17.5% tax rate this upcoming season and also paid a 25M posting fee for Ryu. Including that and any future roster moves, the amount of money they will spend on their 40 man roster in 2013 could approach 300M

    That's assuming they sign Ryu. If they don't the fee is returned.

    If this was the Yankees, tomorrow's headlines would be about how they were ruining the game.

    Since it's someone else, I imagine the narrative will be something along the lines of "baseball is making a huge comeback".

    Which its quite different than the 50% rate the Yankees have been paying the last couple of years. Until Ryu is signed, I don't consider 25M posting fee an expenditure right now.

    At least he's in the NL. But damn that staff will rival Washington if this deal is done.

    What's funny is they can't blame the Yankees yet the MSM is bemoaning the Yankees not spending money this offseason.

    I'm not so sure the Yankees would really get that now so much with all the spending by Boston, Philly, Detroit, LA, Anaheim, Florida, etc over the last few seasons. And I also think now we know how it feels.
