Greinke Traded to Milwaukee

This related to the Rays in two ways – no more annual stories hearing about how much Greinke hates Tropicana Field and it shuts down one of the Matt Garza trade rumors that was floating out there in recent weeks.

The Brewers traded SS Alcides Escobar, OF Lorenzo Cain, and pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffres to acquire Greinke and Yuniesky Betancourt.  All of those players are from spots the Rays organization already have depth at and they are the Brewers best prospects which likely means there never was a good match for the Rays and Brewers for a deal with Garza.
