    So if media reports are correct, and the Astros only owe $53M to Greinke going forward, this trade is actually not as much of an overpay as we first thought. If you apply the marginal-win concept, such that Greinke’s production means more to a contending team and in a post-season run, then it seems fair.

    Our understanding pre-trade was that Greinke was owed much more than this in deferred money, per Spotrac, which is why we had his value more deeply in the negative zone. We’re still waiting for this point to be clarified, but if true, this trade seems less risky for the Astros.

    (Note that teams have already been changed.)
