Dodgers Rumors: Team Expected To Give Greinke 6 Years, $210 Million

As if there hasn’t been enough actual news today, the rumor mill seems to have one-upped everything and given us specifics as to what kind of contract it would take to re-sign Zack Greinke.

The good news, though, is that the Dodgers are expected to be the team to dish out all the money.

This, via Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News:

On one hand, the immediate reaction is probably one of glee, as it would mean the Dodgers’ greatest advantage from a year ago (Clayton Kershaw and Greinke as the league’s best one-two punch) will again help mask other issues on the roster.

On the other, though… Man. That’s a lot of money to be handing over to a 32 year-old pitcher. The contract wouldn’t hurt at all in the first couple years, but paying a 38-year-old $35 million-plus seems pretty risky.

This is just a rumor, but as specifics come out and reports surface that Greinke will probably sign “soon”, it’s hard not to take note of this kind of thing.
