Brewers general manager Doug Melvin took some time out of his busy schedule of taking phone calls asking about Zack Greinke to tell the world something we all already knew.
Zack Greinke is going to be traded sometime this week.
“If you're in a pennant race,” Melvin said. "This guy is a difference maker. He can go deep into games. He's never been on the DL except for a basketball injury. He's very athletic. And he's great in the clubhouse.”
“I'm very fond of him. He's one of my favorite players I ever had. Really, he's been like a son to me. I enjoyed talking baseball with him. He's very passionate. He follows the game. It's been a great experience having him for a year and a half. There are so many good things about him, it's going to be difficult when we trade him.”
This is news to nobody who would actually be reading this blog. It might be news to some orphaned kid living in the streets of Albania, but it's not to you.
I'm only posting it because there's nothing going on with the White Sox today and I was gone all day long.
I'm also posting it because we know that the White Sox are one of many teams interested in Zack Greinke. In fact, according to Danny Knobler, Zack Greinke is the only thing on Kenny Williams' mound right now.
Sadly, as I've said here before, I don't see it happening. I mean, not unless Kenny sends so much to Milwaukee for him that it actually hurts the White Sox, and I don't see that happening.
