Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zach Greinke is one of the best in baseball at his position. Greinke is also one of the games richest after signing a six-year, $147 million deal with the Dodgers this off-season.
Greinke took a shot at those professional athletes who sign huge lucrative contracts, and then deny that it was about the money.
Greinke let it be known to CBSSports.com that money matters to him, and that it was the main reason he signed with the Dodgers.
“It’s obviously the No. 1 thing.”
“I could play for the worst team if they paid the most. … If the last-place team offers $200 million and the first-place team offers $10, I’m going to go for the $200-million no matter what team it was.”
“The worst comment in the world has got to be when a guy who’s getting $100 million says he wants to ‘take care of my family,’” Greinke added.
He also told CBS Sports that “he’s a bad liar,” and “forgets the lies even when he tries to lie.” I can appreciate Greinke’s honesty.
