Could the Giants convince Zack Grienke to join the other side of the rivalry? According to Jon Heyman, not only are the Giants a serious threat to sign Zack Greinke, but some even think they might be the favorite. "The Giants are very much interested in Greinke by all appearances, and may well have made him their No. 1 target. The Giants are actually said to have interest in acquiring two starting pitchers, so it remains to be seen whether they can compete financially with the Dodgers, who are aiming to bring Greinke back into the fold."   "You've seen him each year we've had him, and each year he gets better as the season goes on. He's in great shape, he adds and subtracts to his pitches when he wants to. He can continue to pitch just like Maddux into his 40s. He has that ability, because he has the pitches already and makes the adjustments with the pitches he has."
There is no doubt the Giants will be active on the free agent pitching market, but it would be hard to see them outspending the Los Angeles Dodgers for Zack Greinke.  This is why we have Greinke returning to the Dodgers. The Dodgers will find themselves in a difficult spot if they don't resign Zack Greinke.  Sure, the free agent pitcher market is deep, but the Dodgers success relies heavily on the dominance of Kershaw and Greinke.  The rest of their division, especially the Arizona Diamondbacks, will also be much better in 2016. Greinke to the Giants is interesting, but unlikely.
