Astros Houston

The Zack Greinke Party

The Astros would stop at nothing to land a starting pitcher before the trade deadline, and in the final seconds they actually fuckin pulled it off, acquiring Zach Greinke from the Diamondbacks.

What a move. In the trade, the Diamondbacks only get the Stros #3-5 prospects. The prospects being 1B/OF Seth Beer, righty J.B. Bukauskas, and right-handed Corbin Martin as well as Josh Rojas, the Stros 24th ranked prospect. You probably donโ€™t know these people and neither do I. We probably never will.

The Diamondbacks did send $24 million to the Astros to get the deal done and help pay some of Greinkeโ€™s contract, which has the highest annual average value amongst starting pitchers. But at the end of the day who care about $24 million because as we all know, a World Series, priceless.
