We're getting plus money with one of the pitchers in baseball this season. Greinke has been incredible through 64.2 innings, allowing just 49 hits, 20 earned runs, striking out 62 and allowing a .210 batting average. Greinke also has ridiculous career numbers against the Padres, and that includes a .228 batting average with 60 strikeouts in 206 at bats against current San Diego hitters. I love getting ace quality pitchers and cheap prices / plus money. Greinke has been that all year. Give me the Arizona Diamondbacks and the favorable price.
