Enrique Hernandez begs Zack Greinke to pretty please with a cherry on top sign with the Dodgers
Jason Heyward is a plus defender with some pop who can hit at the top of your lineup, or protect its heart. David Price is a bona fide ace who was traded at the non-waiver Trade Deadline, so he won't cost your team a compensation pick if you sign him. Chris Davis has hit 127 home runs in his last 447 games.
In a free-agent class like that, how does one make a point of standing tall among the players whose services are currently available at auction? By posting a 1.66 ERA, that's how.
Dodgers pitcher and NL Cy Young Award hopeful Zack Greinke had one of the best seasons since the Deadball Era and led MLB in ERA, ERA+ and WHIP on his way to an All-Star appearance and a Gold Glove Award. Greinke recently exercised an opt-out clause in his contract, making him a free agent with the likes of Heyward, Price, Davis and Co., but some folks are holding out hope that he starts next season in Dodger blue.
Enrique Hernandez took to Twitter in an effort to publicize his courting of his former teammate:
Dear Zack, I have no money to offer you but this is my pitch! PLEASEEEEE stay! ���� #21 pic.twitter.com/BwEm0MAghC- Enrique Hernandez (@kikehndez) November 14, 2015
Aww. How can you say "no" to a face like that?
