It’s the $200 million question: Where will Zack Greinke land? Anyone even distantly connected with the Los Angeles Dodgers has that at the forefront of their offseason thoughts. My wife asked me the other day: “Hey, what’s the deal with that Greinke guy?” She is not a baseball fan. Not at all.

So, fans can at least take solace that at least one major platform think their Dodgers are the most likely destination for the potential Cy Young winner.


ICYMI: Davey Lopes Heads To Washington


David Schoenfield of ESPN thinks that just might be the case. Of the five teams Greinke might land, the Dodgers seemed the most logical.

1. The favorite: Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers obviously have the cash, but you can also envision a scenario in which they won’t want to wait on Greinke’s decision. Maybe they instead go after David Price or Johnny Cueto. Maybe they sign Jason Heyward to a big deal and trade Yasiel Puig. Maybe the allocate their resources in multiple players. That said, everyone seems to think the Dodgers are the favorite to sign Greinke.

The points made here by Schoenfield all make a ton of sense. By all reports, Greinke loves it in Los Angeles. He also is too well-rounded a player to be overly-interested in the American League and the designated hitter.

It’s also to important to note, though, that Andrew Friedman comes from a culture that held off of giving huge contracts to players late into their 30s. This by no means fans should start making plans to DVR Greinke’s re-introductory press conference, but it’s definitely a start.

Editor-in-Chief

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
