Zack Greinke to the Brewers

New, 1221 comments

I like the deal for both sides, especially considering where both teams are in the success cycle. The Brewers try to maximize the last year with Prince Fielder, and the Royals get a couple of cost-controlled guys up the middle and two solid pitching prospects. I also like how there was no way the Giants could have come up with a comparable offer. Makes me feel better.

Stats after the jump.
