GM: Zack Greinke will be traded

Oh, brother:

“I’m very fond of him,” [GM Doug] Melvin told USA Today. “He’s one of my favorite players I ever had. Really, he’s been like a son to me. I enjoyed talking baseball with him. He’s very passionate. He follows the game. It’s been a great experience having him for a year and a half.

“There are so many good things about him, it’s going to be difficult when we trade him.”
