Even with six veteran starting pitchers under contract for the 2013 season, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in the market for another arm, reports Jayson Stark of ESPN. He notes that the team is considering free agent right-handers Zack Greinke, Hiroki Kuroda and Anibal Sanchez. Even w/ 6 veteran starters under contract, #Dodgers want to add another. Besides Greinke & Kuroda, hearing Anibal Sanchez also on their list — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) November 6, 2012 The six pitchers Los Angeles has under contract include Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano, Josh Beckett and Aaron Harang. The health of Lilly and Billingsley for the start of next season is in question, and the team is reportedly expected to trade at least one starting pitcher this winter. Greinke and Sanchez are younger players that would require a longer commitment. Kuroda, a former Dodger, on the other hand, may be willing to accept a one- or two-year contract depending on how much longer he wants to pitch. All three arms are at or near the top of this winter’s starting pitcher market, so the Dodgers are clearly aiming high in their pursuit of an additional arm.

How screwed are the Angels if they lose Zack Greinke?

Should the Jays Pursue Greinke? A Word of Caution About Pitcher WAR

It's certainly no secret that the Jays need starting pitching (2 of them, in fact, as per my earlier post), and it is also no secret that the only "bona fide ace" out there on the open market this winter will be Zack Greinke.

Zack Greinke, Josh Hamilton and personality

As Angels fans, we've given a lot of thought to the idea of re-signing Zack Greinke.  We've also given a lot of thought to Josh Hamilton, but I imagine most of those thoughts are not fit for a family site like this.  Now though, I specifically want us all to give thought to Greinke, Hamilton and their oft-dicussed personality/make-up issues. The stereotype of Greinke...
