Why is Greinke getting so much dough?

Grienke is a very rich man

Let me say this upfront: I don’t hold Zack Greinke‘s salary against him. It was offered, and anyone with half a brain would accept what the Dodgers threw his way. This is not a post about the insane amounts of money athletes make (although, you have to admit, it is insane that athletes are paid that much money).

What I don’t understand is this: it’s Zack Greinke. The guy is a modern-day Alex Fernandez. Good at what he does, but far from an elite player. The highest-paid players should be those who are truly great, not #2 or #3 starters. Josh Hamilton I understand. Alex Rodriguez, cheater though he is, I get it. These are guys who produce runs and win ballgames. Greinke isn’t that guy.
