How the D-Backs Landed Grienke in 333 Minutes

Ken Kendrick, the Diamondbacks’ managing general partner, made the call at about noon MT on Friday, Dec. 4.

The D-backs were about 5½ hours away from reaching a six-year, $206.5 million agreement with free-agent right-hander Zack Greinke. But at that point, they had yet to even inform Greinke’s agent of their interest in the pitcher.

Lots of interesting stuff in here. It certainly makes Grienke look like a mercenary (he didn’t even talk to the team until after the offer was accepted), and Dave Stewart is portrayed as a total bystander to the process.
