Zack Greinke Reportedly Willing to Accept Trade to Yankees

****in' Yankees.

The Yankees still have their hearts set on signing Cliff Lee as a free agent, but their chances at getting a guy to ride shotgun to CC Sabathia might not be up in smoke if he remains with the Rangers.

Royals ace Zack Greinke is reportedly OK with the prospect of a trade sending him to the Yankees. That runs counter to earlier reports that Greinke isn't interested in pitching in the highly pressurized New York market, reports that stemmed from the fact that he has a no-trade clause that includes the Yankees. According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, though, Greinke is open to going anywhere with a winning team.

"I wouldn't put it past him to go to New York," Passan's source said. "I don't think he'd rule out anybody. He says he likes New York. Especially because they're winners. He wants to go to a team that wins."

Imagine that, a player who prefers winning to losing. Stop the presses!

Seriously, though, this is eye-opening because it flies in the face of the perceptions about Greinke that have built up over the last couple of years. The no-trade clause mixed with his previous issues with social anxiety disorder and depression made it seem like the atmosphere around a team like the Yankees would make any attempt to add Greinke a non-starter. This would appear to change that equation.

What's more, Passan reports that the Royals have had discussions with the Yankees about a trade that would send Greinke to the Bronx. Obviously such discussions are in very early stages as the Yankees would almost surely prefer signing Lee to spending prospects on a deal for Greinke.

A trade for Greinke, who is 27 and signed for $27 million over the next two seasons, would come at a high price in terms of big-league talent and/or highly regarded prospects. For the Yankees, such a deal would likely have to include Jesus Montero, expected to be the catcher in 2011, and at least one of the top pitching prospects Manuel Banuelos and Dellin Betances.

That's a steep price and there would certainly be other bidders, but the Yankees are likely cheered by the prospect that the cupboard isn't bare if they can't lure Lee to their clubhouse.

I personally think Greinke woudl probably do really well for a portion of the season.. then the fans would turn on him after a rough outting and he would wilt

If the Royals could get a Bartolo Colon type deal out of it - I would say go for it.

Obviously, trading Greinke would go a long way toward defining the Moore era in KC. He simply has to make a great, not good, decision if he moves a talent like Zack.

No excuses.

If the Royals would trade him because of financial concerns, you'd be right.
