Baseball economics

Posted by Jonathan @ RGB Cards | Posted in ,

Beleive me, I'm all for the idea of Zack Greinke not being traded to the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets or any other ESPN-friendly team. I like the idea of any team potentially being able to land a superstar player via a trade, because lord knows it doesn't happen with free agency. But why, oh why, does it have to be the Brewers who get Greinke?

No offense to Thorzul or any of the other fine folks who support the Cervezeros, but the fact is that Milwaukee is in the NL Central. So are the Reds. The Reds are, in fact, the defending NL Central champions (and damn it feels good to say that). Personally, I don't want any other team in the division strengthening themselves, especially when the Reds haven't done that much in the off season.

So Kansas City, please steer Zack Greinke away from Milwaukee, or St. Louis, or Houston or Chicago. Pittsburgh is okay because I don't think he'll make that much of a difference to the Pirates anyway. And if you really want to make a statement, and show the world that there are great baseball teams located in cities other than New York, Boston or Los Angeles, feel free to ship Greinke up the Ohio River. I bet he would look great in red.
