For months now we've been hearing about just how big of an offseason free-agent market this would be for starting pitchers, with aces Matt Cain, Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke all set to enter the open market.
Cain has already been locked in, and the Giants are in first place in the NL West. The Phillies and Brewers—both postseason teams a year ago—aren't faring nearly as well, meaning that the Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke drama may not wait until the offseason to play out, with both arms possible on the market.
As expected, the list of suitors for Greinke isn't a short one, with a number of contending teams being named among those interested in using the Brewers' ace for a stretch run.
