It's not a popular opinion but I am thankful we didn't get Greinke. The guy is a headcase and a piece of crap. He spurned the Nats before, but now that they are making waves, oh, maybe. Whatever. Whatever is going on in that Nats locker room seems to be working and I really don't think Greinke would have contributed positively.
That's a massive oversimplification of what occurred.Greinke simply didn't want to be traded to a team that just gutted it's roster to acquire him... going from one losing situation to another losing situation wasn't going to help him, or the Nats.He did the team a favor.
I tend to believe that the simplest answer is the more likely. We aren't dealing with a bunch of Socrates and R.A. Dickeys here. We are dealing with jocks. Meat.He was full of crap then and I think he is full of crap now. He wouldn't have been a fit then or now so I don't know why some fans are choking like we missed some prime opportunity. (Not saying here necessarily, but in other parts of this great Interweb.)
Well, I choose to believe what he said at the time.
Derek Lowe is drawing interest from five teams, all of which want to use him as a long reliever and possible spot starter.However, Lowe wants an opportunity to start."I've heard the same thing from everyone,” said Lowe. "I want to be a starter and feel I have a lot left in being a regular starter in a rotation and making my 30-plus starts. I can still do that. It's frustrating to see other starters who have come off injuries get a shot, and I've never been hurt and can still help a team. I'm sure things will get going for me in January. I want to pitch. I'm nowhere near ready to retire."
Oh freak it. I was going to put an "America freak YEAH" image but none are workinh and I am too drunk to op=paoop.
Soon as I read this little story first team to pop into my mind were our Nats
Ken Rosenthal @Ken_RosenthalSource: #Brewers agree with Mike Gonzalez.
JIM BOWDEN @JimBowdenESPNxmBrewers outbid Reds and Nationals for services of LHR Mike Gonzalez #confirmed
Mark Zuckerman @ZuckermanCSNSo basically, #Nats only other LH reliever option is to sign J.P. Howell. Otherwise, they enter '13 with Zach Duke and Bill Bray.Expand
