LOS ANGELES The Angels have a news conference scheduled for late Wednesday morning to officially introduce their four new pitchers, none of whom will be Zack Greinke.
When it came time to choose his team, sign his contract and pose for photos wearing his teams jersey and cap, Greinke picked the Dodgers, not the Angels.
Greinke spent two months in Anaheim last season, but any hope the Angels had that he would like it enough to return dissolved in dollars and years. They simply chose not to compete with the kind of offers he was getting from the Dodgers.
Its not that theyre unwilling to invest. Last winter, they were the team making the biggest splash, signing Albert Pujols and pitcher CJ Wilson to mega-deals that made them favorites to win the World Series.
But theres been a seismic shift in power and resources. The Dodgers have new owners and an apparent unlimited budget, and theyre flexing their financial muscle at a level that would shame the New York Yankees. In two days, th...
BEST OF MAXIM
If you think Zack Greinke just signed a big free-agent contract, wait three years.
He might get an even bigger deal then.
Greinke's six-year, $147 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers includes an opt-out clause that enables him to return to the open market midway through the agreement, major-league sources say.
Talk about perfect timing: By the time Greinke is eligible...
LOS ANGELES Finally.
An honest man.
Maybe even two.
Zack Greinke said that when it came down to choosing the Dodgers over other teams pursuing him, it was all about the money.
General manager Ned Colletti said that the Dodgers have done what they set out to do, and now theyre done with the nearly 600-million shopping spree.
The new Dodger right-hander said that he was leaning...

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Dodgers broke the proverbial bank when they added free agent pitchers Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu to their already bloated payroll.But they only made one go "Gangnam Style" during his first photo shoot with the team.Seriously, is that how we welcome a Korean-born baseball player to the Majors? I can't imagine that dude donned the...
Earlier today, the deal that has been the talk of the town, was finally consummated when new starting pitcher Zack Greinke donned his new Dodger jersey and ball cap for the first time amid an army of reporters.
Having recently signed a league record six-year deal for $147 million, the Dodgers continued to show the rest of baseball that they planned to be a force to be reckoned...
The Dodgers signed Zack Greinke to a contract that reflects his ace-like abilities. But does he have ace-like abilities?
On Saturday, the Los Angeles Dodgers gave one of the biggest contracts in baseball history to Zack Greinke. On Sunday, the Dodgers gave a big contract to Ryu Hyun-Jin, who has never before pitched in the majors. The Dodgers still might not even be done, and neither of the moves this weekend came as a surprise, because as we’ve established, the Dodgers have all of the money. The...
Well, it happened. Zack Greinke is staying in Southern California, but he'll be doing so wearing Dodger Blue and all the Angels have to show for it is a wobbly rotation and a giant hole in their farm system where three quality prospects used to be.
Some corners of the baseball world are applauding Jerry Dipoto for the restraint he showed in not giving into Greinke's...
The Los Angeles Angels and the Los Angeles Dodgers have ruled the roost this offseason. The best available free agent players, Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke, have both been spoken for and it’s official - they love L.A..
There has been a seismic shift in the baseball landscape and the more Bud Selig screams parity, the less of it there seems to be.

Now, let’s talk about the Dodgers.
First of all, the unavoidable sound effect the Dodgers will play of “Ha-dou-ken!” every time a strikeout is notched by Ryu Hyun-jin will sound clever only to them, but...
