08:12 AM ET 12.05 | And then there were two? The Zack Greinke derby is currently between the Dodgers and Rangers, with a great likelihood that one of those teams will win the services of the top free-agent pitcher in the market, people close to the situation say. The Dodgers have been viewed as a fairly clear favorite for Greinke, but Texas is showing signs of determination, according to major-league sources. The Dodgers are seen as having an almost unlimited payroll, but people familiar with the happenings now suggest the derby could go either way. Not many teams could hope to go dollar-for-dollar against the Dodgers, but the Rangers are trying to do just that. The bidding is said by major-league officials to be "quite high" now.

they're not being stingy ... just prudent ... the problem being ... Greenkey isn't necessarily the "Key" to their fortunes ... a better than decent, but not the great one ...

Sure they can keep him - if they get another $40 million loan from MLB's bank like they did in bankruptcy to keep Cliff Lee

the rangers have the bank account fully loaded, plus a TV DEAL where they likely get billions in return,,,,
