It happens every off-season, teams get into a frenzied bidding situation for a high profile free agent. Just when we think we know who he is going to sign with- BAM! They strike out of nowhere! The mystery team!!!
You never believe it when they are mentioned in rumors. You scoff and mock the reporter who even suggests their presence. But then, lo and behold, that's who the free agent picks much like Albert Pujols chose the Angels, Prince Fielder chose the Tigers, Cliff Lee chose the Phillies. The list goes on and on. Like it or not, the mystery team is here to stay and once again positioned to play a major role.
No free agent is bigger this off-season than Zack Greinke and wherever their is a big free agent, there lurks a mystery team! Sure, they have yet to rear their ugly head, but with the Winter Meetings right around the corner, they are no doubt primed to strike.
So who will it be?
The Angels at one point were desperate to re-sign...
BEST OF MAXIM
With all the controversy going on in Los Angeles about who they will pick up in the offseason, many outlets have begun to report that they have their sights set firmly on current free agent pitcher Zack Greinke. By acquiring the talents of Greinke, the Dodgers could become viable MLB picks throughout the year. While Los Angeles certainly has the money to get Greinke going into the...

interest from the Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers and

While the Los Angeles Angels are now viewed as unlikely to re-sign
right-hander Zack Greinke this winter, the Los Angeles Dodgers are seen as the
frontrunner for the market’s top starter, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are rumored to be the favorite to
sign right-hander Zack Greinke, and they took the first step in that process
yesterday as they met with the free agent, reports Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.
The Dodgers met Thursday with Zack Greinke. They're very serious about signing him, and this looks like the start of it.

If the Zack Greinke sweepstakes comes down to the two L.A. teams as many have speculated, then the talented right-hander could soon don Dodger Blue.
According to CBSSports.com’s Danny Knobler, the Angels are unlikely to sign Greinke despite once being considered the favorites to do so.
A report over the weekend indicated that Greinke could be in line to receive a record-setting...
If reports are to be believed, the Angels have gotten a sense of what kind of financial commitment it will take to keep Zack Greinke and decided that they just can't afford him... even though they kind of knew what his price tag would be when they traded for him... and still knew that price a few weeks ago when they overtly expressed how re-signing was their top priority.
The Rangers are favorites to land Zack Greinke, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register.
For what it’s worth, I was told today the #Rangers are the favorites for Greinke. It could all just be posturing now. Wait and see.
That goes against what Jim Bowden of ESPN said though.

Two years ago, Zack Greinke rejected a trade to the Washington Nationals because he thought the team wasn't good enough.
On Thursday, coming off a 98-win season, the Nats traded for Minnesota center fielder Denard Span, all but screaming at Greinke, "How do you like us now?"
I'm not saying the Nats suddenly are the favorites for Greinke -- that distinction belongs...

That's about to change.

1. Back Up the Truck for Zack Greinke: Listen, I’m not going to sit here and sugar coat the state of the Boston Red Sox starting pitching. Assuming Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Felix Doubront, and John Lackey are healthy, it’s not exactly the most daunting pitching staff in the league. This staff needs an ace. This isn’t a secret. But DO NOT go out and be the team that throws...
