Normally with the Dodgers and a low line I'm all over it, but even in a down year, we're getting plus money with Greinke, and that's something that really doesn't happen often especially when he's turned into Houston's staff ace with all of the injuries in the lineup. I just think that even with the Dodgers, this price on Houston is too good to pass on between two teams that really don't like each other.
