Zack Greinke May Stay In National League To Hit

(Photo Credit—Ron Cervenka)While multiple reports have suggested that Dave Dombrowski is focusing on Zack Greinke as his prime free-agent pitching target, it appears the righty wants to stay in the Senior Circuit. In fact, the San Francisco Giants are reportedly making Greinke their #1 priority—and, since the Cy Young runner-up still loves to hit—they may be the favorites to land him. If Greinke insists on wielding the lumber in the national league, Boston will have to re-focus on David Price, Jordan Zimmermann or Johnny Cueto. Stay tuned.

Starting pitchers and long-term contracts

Giving long-term contracts to starting pitchers is generally seen as a bad idea, but how bad are these contracts in reality? With Lance Lynn out for the 2016 season with Tommy John surgery, there is a high likelihood that the Cardinals will add a starting pitcher via free agency. There are several big names available, including David Price, Zack Greinke, and Jordan Zimmermann, and the Cardinals have the money to sign one of these pitchers. Of course, having the ability to sign an elite starting pitcher does not necessarily mean it is a good idea. Big contracts are always a major risk, and...

SB Nation MLB Awards 2015: Pitcher of the Year

Who dominated the mound in 2015? Now that you've had time to decide who the hitter of the year is (surprising nobody, you overwhelmingly chose Bryce Harper), it's time to look at the other side of the coin and pick the year's best pitcher. There were plenty of great performances on the mound in 2015, so this could be a difficult vote. The Dodgers had the ERA and rWAR leader in Zack Greinke and the bWAR leader in Clayton Kershaw, but there's one very good reason not to vote for either of them. The Nationals didn't make the playoffs, but Max Scherzer gave DC plenty of excitement by throwing...

Red Sox Free Agent Target: Jeff Samardzija

Shark struggled in 2015 and he is burdened with the cost of draft pick compensation, but those factors make him the best buy-low candidate of the offseason. This off-season, the vast majority of talk about the Red Sox' free agent plans center around their need to acquire an ace. With Johnny Cueto, Zack Greinke, Jordan Zimmermann and David Price all on the market this winter, this is probably the best chance the new Dombrowski-led front office will ever have to sign an arm that slots at the top of the rotation for years to come. All of those guys are widely considered "aces" and their stat...
