I bought Zack Greinke in the American Dream League draft, part of a $50 pitching staff (Freezes Gavin Floyd $1 and Edwin Jackson $3, joined by Greinke, Duchscherer $4, the brilliant Kevin Millwood (today anyway) $2, breakout candidate Brandon McCarthy $1 and a relief crew of Balfour $5, Brandon Lyon $5, and George Sherrill $10.
Posnanski tells a good story or three, and teaches me an important thing or two about Greinke.
(The rest of the team: Victor Martinez $21, Zaun $2, Billy Butler $18, Figgins $23, Adrian Beltre $16, Iwamura $13, Jeter $20, Betemit $3, Josh Hamilton $26 freeze, Ryan Sweeney $3 freeze, Granderson $28, Delmon Young $19, Mark Teahen $10, and Travis Hafner $3. Yes, $3. He would have been a loser last year, but at least the risk isn’t great.)
