So, too much I guess? I'm thinking the other two prospects weren't slouches either.
The problem is who is 'someone like Greinke'? The actual Greinke had a no-trade clause to NY and it was reported he would definitely veto a deal here if asked. He wanted to stay in ARI, but HOU was not on his no-trade list.What is the fucking point of Frazier if it's not to get someone like Greinke? Why is he just sitting in the minors?
This is so irritating. Can't wait to watch Happ get shelled in the postseason.
I didn't realize Greinke would actually veto a trade. I'd assumed that, like many players who negotiate contracts nowadays, he had put New York and other perennial contenders on his No-Trade list in order to force extension negotiations on any potential trade candidate team. Maybe that's still true but I'd have to doubt it given the amount of money Arizona ate on this deal; Cashman probably could have ponied up another year or even two at $20M per if that were the case. As Fangraphs pointed out today, Greinke is aging well because of his curveball despite his fading fastball.The problem is who is 'someone like Greinke'?

Heh, I already bumped that thread and updated it, but the short version is Loaisiga can go on now because they are at 39 after trading Harvey, and then one of Betances/Severino can bump Camarena, who is no loss. After that, it gets trickier if no one else goes on the 60 day IL but they do have two moves to go before then at least.What's up with our 40-man roster, btw? If Jon Abbey could provide some info that would be awesome, but I suspect it's not going to be what I want to hear.
