Zack Greinke

The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner just turned 29 and is without a doubt the best unrestricted free agent pitcher. The Angels right-hander's market may be limited, however, because he has dealt with depression and anxiety orders and there is a question as to how comfortable he would be in a big market. That certainly works in the Orioles' favor. The potential price tag doesn't. Orioles' bottom line: The club has never given a contract beyond three years to a free agent pitcher. And Greinke surely will command that. But the fact that the big boys may not be in play, makes this one a little -- and only a little -- more realistic.
