The cost of Greinke

According to Bowman, the Brewers want Julio Teheran and another highly regarded prospect (Sean Gilmartin?) I’d do that.

Meanwhile, the Dempster deal reportedly involved Delgado AND a minor leaguer. Dempster joins A.J. Burnett and Fukey as would-be Braves who, thankfully, spurned FW.

    Teheran has taken a huge step backward this season. I’m surprised somebody still wants him. I’d do the deal before they come to their senses.

    Absolutely. I’m in on that one.

    And Griffey Jr. And Jake Peavy.

    I’ve read elsewhere they’d want Teheran and Delgado. That’s a lot. As for Teheran taking a step backward, he’s certainly having a bad year. But I suspect major league scouts and execs understand this stuff better than we do, so if he is still in great demand, he must still have a bright future. Some prospects pan out, of course, and some don’t. But I think it’s a mistake to assume Teheran is damaged goods.

  5. Delgado AND Teheran is too much — you’d have to sign Greinke if you have gave that up.

    I’d like to see a scouting report on Teheran before giving up on him. He’s very young and his struggles this season are likely part of his development. Unless he’s traded for an ace who can be under team control for at least three years, I wouldn’t like to see him go.

    By the way, the pitching prospects who were sent to the Astros in return for Bourn have struggled this year.

    Greinke has had one great season, a couple good ones, and several poor. Only once has his ERA been under 3.50. For the money he commands, I don’t like it.
    I thought the question posed about Javier Vasquez was a good one. His ERA last year was about the same as Greinke’s.
