LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- More and more, it seems likely that the Royals will trade Zack Greinke this winter. Maybe even this week.

But where?

The teams believed to be the most interested have been the Rangers and Blue Jays, but the Royals also believe that the Yankees could become involved if they lose out on Cliff Lee. While the Yankees remain the favorites to sign Lee, some baseball people continue to believe that he will sign with the Rangers instead.

In the past, the thinking was that Greinke (who has partial no-trade protection) would never approve a deal to New York or any other big market, but one person who knows him well said today that he believes Greinke would accept a deal to the Yankees. It's less clear whether the Yankees would be willing to take the chance that he'll be able to handle New York, or that the two teams could agree on which players would be in a deal.

In any case, the Royals seem to be in a strong position, because besides Lee, there's no pitcher available on the free-agent or trade market who has anything close to Greinke's talent.

You honestly believe that the Rangers have more to offer than the Jays?

Wow...I disagree on that one - The Jays are possibly the deepest organization in MLB in terms of pitching prospects and they have a bunch of them who are MLB-ready right now.  KC isn't going to bank on future pitching prospects, they are going to want the ones who are ready to go now.  This isn't about "bidding" this is about putting together a package that makes Kansas a better club.  As an earlier poster mentioned, Drabek is likely a target, but also look at Romero.  Texas has depleted their MLB-ready stock for now.  They are deep in the farm, but still a lot of them are too many years away.
