You know the situation by now: Zack Greinke is reportedly deciding between signing with the Giants or Dodgers.
On Wednesday, Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow said, "the Giants need a Greinke. They need to risk a contract like that."
On Thursday morning, Krukow's partner Duane Kuiper weighed in on the topic.
"It doesn't scare me off because it's not my money," Kuiper said on KNBR 680-AM. "And I don't think it scares the Giants off. I don't. They did this with Lester last year. They felt with his conditioning, with his athleticism, with his background -- his history health wise. They did all of that with Lester, and they've done it with Greinke.
"It's always gonna be a gamble, and you play the odds, and I really believe that this guy is gonna be just fine five years into his contract, just because of how smart he is and how he'll figure it out if he does lose some velocity."
Greinke was the sixth overall pick in the 2002 draft.
He has played for four franchises -- the Royals from 2004 to 2010, the Brewers from 2011 to July 2012, the Angels from July 2012 to the end of the season, and the Dodgers from 2013 to 2015.
The 32-year old finished second in NL Cy Young voting last season, and seventh in MVP voting.
He went 19-3 with a 1.66 ERA and won the Gold Glove. He also hit .224 with two home runs.
"I absolutely want him because now you go into a city and if you got Bumgarner and Greinke, and you got other guys that are pretty good too, you have to like your chances," Kuiper explained. "Plus, he can do everything -- he can field, he can hit.
"And I think he would fit in that Giants clubhouse. I think he would fit perfectly. Everybody reads and knows that he's an odd guy. He's a different cat. But the Giants clubhouse is really good when it comes to stuff like that."
