Zack Greinke Aftermath: Will the Dodgers Waste Clayton Kershaw's Prime?

sports.vice.com — The staggering six-year, $206.5 million contract Zack Greinke received from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night stunned the baseball world. Greinke is about to average $34.42 million annually, shattering the previous average annual value record of $31 million held by Miguel Cabrera and David Price, and yet the shocking part was that the big bad infinite payroll Dodgers were outbid by the small market Diamondbacks.

Clayton Kershaw is ready to change his postseason narrative.

sportsonearth.com — When I was 13 years old, my mother left me at home alone for the first time in charge of my 8-year-old sister. Now, before you report her to Child Protective Services, know that the poor woman was probably just headed down the street to the bank or the grocery store, or running some other mom errand to help keep us fed and sheltered.
