Things look to be moving in the right direction for the Los Angeles Dodgers as it pertains to their offseason prospects.  Just this last week they set up a meeting with star pitcher Zach Greinke and the meeting reportedly went well.  While it is anything but a done deal, picking up Greinke could make the Los Angeles Dodgers sure fire MLB picks going into the much anticipated 2013 season. The bad news about the meeting this week is the fact that Greinke also met with the Angels while in California.  This shows that he is a hot commodity and could be tougher to get for the Dodgers than they first had anticipated.  Him switching momentum and going to the Angels could cause a huge ripple in the MLB that will be felt for years to come. Also, the Angels are not the only in talks with Greinke at this time.  The Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals are also looking to swoop up the pitcher and are willing to spend a great deal to make sure he is wearing their colors come the start of the season.  Luckily for the Dodgers, they have a great deal of money to work with currently and will more than likely be able to offer Greinke much more than the other teams are willing to.  They just have to weigh his worth and see if he is ultimately worth the money they would be offering him.  He is a great pitcher but may end up tying up too much money in the long.  This something the Dodgers have had to deal with recently and would not want to repeat any time soon. As it stands now, the Dodgers are hot on the trail of acquiring Zack Greinke for the start of the 2013 season.  They need to first make sure other teams do not beat them to the punch as well as keeping an eye on how much they are willing to pay Greinke in the long run.
