MLB Trade Scenarios: 5 Teams Who Should Pounce on Zack Greinke

As we near the start of spring training and the 2012 regular season, we start to analyze players to see which will perform well, which will perform poorly, which will stay put and which will be traded.  We make projections and predictions and try our best to single-handedly determine who will walk away eight-and-a-half months from now with the trophy.  We're usually wrong, but we try regardless.

I predict that in 2012, Zack Greinke will wear two different uniforms, and neither one will so much as appear in the World Series.  I also predict Zack Greinke will have yet another average year that everyone describes as "great", but teams will still line up to pay him ace-money after the season when he becomes a free agent.

Apart from his 2009 AL Cy Young-winning season with Kansas City, Greinke has consistently hovered around a 3.80 ERA with decent strikeout totals and fairly unimpressive win totals ... AVERAGE.

But, in the minds of many, he is a 28-year-old ace, so come the trade deadline, when the Brewers are in third place thanks to the loss of Prince Fielder and 50 games of Ryan Braun, they'll likely look to restock the farm system by dealing Greinke to a contender for the stretch run.  The only question is, which teams should go after him?
