Greinke Admission Offends People, for Some Reason

 

Say this for Zach Greinke:  he is not afraid to let people know about his motivations.

Greinke, a starting pitcher who split last season between the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Angels, signed a 6-year, $147 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers back in December.  At the time of the signing, this deal was the second-largest in MLB history among contracts given to pitchers.

And in a rare bit of candid honestly, Greinke left no doubt that money is the biggest reason he will wear Dodger Blue this season. 

"I could play for the worst team if they paid the most," Greinke said in an interview with CBSSports.com. "If the last-place team offers $200 million and the first-place team offers $10, I'm going to go for the $200 million no matter what team it was."
