07:50 PM ET 11.19 | The Los Angeles Dodgers are said to be the favorites for Zack Greinke's services in 2013. As the top free agent pitcher on the market, Greinke's contract will determine what other teams will end up offering to secondary options like Anibal Sanchez and Edwin Jackson. If Greinke's deal is smaller, others will likely be smaller as well, but if Greinke signs a big deal, other starters are going to want in on the action. Until he makes his move, teams aren't sure what the value will be set at, so they wait for Greinke's decision to clear up a muddy picture.

Go for it Dodgers. Your last big move (spending the net worth of Canada to buy out most of the Red Sox) sure worked well.

Giants fans just laugh.

And my apologies to Canadians. I realize that was a poor hyperbole.

? Greinke's (possible) deal determines what other players are worth? I don't think so. I also don't think the Dodgers are players in the Greinke sweepstakes, but i could be wrong about that.

Why is Greinke such a catch? He's been average 3 out of the last 5 years. He's been a little above average since he won the Cy 5 years ago.

So Boras and the other agents want Greinke to run up prices before they seriously beging looking for a contract. It happens every year.

I wonder why there's no mention of Lohse. He had a great year. He's better than Jackson. Jackson is below average for last year and his career.

*begin not beging.
