Greinke open to extension talks
Brewers ace Zack Greinke said he is still operating without an agent, but that does not necessarily scuttle the chances of a contract extension.
Greinke is entering his second season with the team and the final season of the four-year, $38 million extension he signed in January 2009. He severed his ties with CAA Sports last year, after the Brewers acquired Greinke in a trade with the Royals.
“It’d be me in charge as of right now,” he said. “So, we’ll see how long that lasts.”
Asked about a possible extension, Greinke said, “I’ll talk to them about it. I don’t really want to talk to anyone else about it. But I like the business of baseball. It’s exciting for me. It’s not like I plan on being my agent, but it is exciting being able to know what’s going on behind the scenes.”
Greinke had some nice things to saw about his Brewers experience in 2011. Check Brewers.com later today for that.
