09:14 AM ET 11.11 | Toronto has reportedly looked into the availability of Kansas City right-hander Zack Greinke via trade. With Cliff Lee the top free agent on the market, Greinke would appeal to also-rans in the Lee sweepstakes such as the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels. The Royals are looking for two "can't-miss prospects" as a starting point in talks on the 2009 American League Cy Young award winner. Grienke, 26, was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA in 33 starts this season and will make $13 million next year.

I really hope the Red Sox land this walking fagina..Imagine a rotation of Greinke, Beckett, Lacky, and DiceK.

They could conceivably combine to make 12 starts in 2011

Greinke will void a trade to the Red Sox or Yankees. Jays should be able to land him but will cost them their best prospects (DRABEK for starters).

I think he would be good up in Toronto. Greinke has stated he only wants to play in small markets so dream on BoSox fans. Greinke in Tampa would be another good fit.

Forget him going to the Red Sox. a non-starer.

The Jays would have to give up the farm to acquire Greinke.

The fellow who was Greinke's mentor and helped pull him through the depths of his psychological demons now works in the Red Sox organization. FWIW...

If I was Zack Greinke, I'd be depressed about living in Toronto.

The truth is that nobody will give up what KC wants for this guy. He'll finish up his contract there and then will go where the free agency process brings him.

Yes, living in Toronto would be depressing. Far more depressing than Kansas City, Houston, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cincinatti, Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Milwaukee...actually, outside of cities in the states of California and Florida as well as Boston and New York, is there any U.S. metropolis that isn't depressing to live in?

Toronto depressing, lol anyone that says that is first class loser and probably has not traveled out side his own school district.

I spend time in the most famous cities in the entire world traveling for work and Toronto is by no means depressing nor is it a small market. Its the 5th biggest in North America, what is wrong with you people.

Canada and Greinke would be an excellent fit....his penchant for staring off into space, dull expression, and cream puff competitiveness will be a great marriage

Why? Have you ever been there? It's like a lot of big American cities, except it's a lot cleaner and there's no racial tension. I would be depressed if i lived any where in the states. Yay, we're a war touting country that is trillions of dollars in debt. Our government is ran by organizations that keep all truths away from there own people. Sounds so dreamy... or delusional... Not to mention how you guys think Everything is American...
