If the team wants to make a big name splash this offseason, signing Greinke may be the safest option.
It would certainly free up some trading pieces.

If something this huge were to occur, you can bet on two of the Big Three being moved in trade packages before the deadline 2013 -- one probably this winter.
I put the odds on Greinke to Seattle at about 0.5%, however.

I know that everyone is waiting for the M's to add bats, but having a rotation fronted by Felix and Greinke would be a huge advantage. With the depth we have in the organization, that's a damn good start to building a consistent contender. The M's could expect to win 40% of their games.
I don't get why people consider him anything less than an ace. His depression issues are way over blown, as he's been solid for the last 5 years. He is consistently great. Having two guys like that would be great.
There aren't any position players of the same caliber available, and we'd be signing him away from a division rival. Seems like a legit option.

I'm getting to the point that you need to go for it and just sign one or two of the best talented free agents each year and continue on the path of building up your farm system. Then when you get your farm system built up then you can slow down on the free agent acquisitions. Go get Grienke.

if all we're giving up is $$$ then Im all for signing Greinke and using our minor leaguers (Hultzen etc) in trade to get 1 or 2 bats.
Felix/Greinke/Vargas/Iwakuma/Prospect sounds great. Trade Paxton NOW and then Hultzen during the year or the offseason. If Im betting on one of the 3 Im betting on Walker's upside.

I think Seattle might be an ideal place for Zack. He's not a big spot light kind of guy. If you could sign him, I'd be for trading one of the big three, Vargas, and another top prospect (not one of the big three) to get a talent like Alex Gordon. He's going to start getting expensive, and Kansas City desparately needs pitching.
I'm not proposing any specific deal, but there does appear to be a reasonable fit.

The Angels and Texicans need him more than we do and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get 7/$175MM. I prefer the grow your own plan with some astute free agent pick ups like Kuma. If they have that kind of money to toss around I'd rather see it go to Hamilton. Scott Feldman had 2.3 fWAR vs 5.1 for Greinke this past season and could be non-tendered. Somebody like him would be value for money.

I might sign Dan Haren over Zack. Haren we could probably get for 11 million a year and three years. I think he would be a real nice #2 behind Felix.
