People close to the Dodgers are beginning to wonder whether Zack Greinke would simply prefer to sign with the Rangers.

The race for Greinke has been characterized as a big money showdown between Texas and Los Angeles with bidding rumored to be in the $160 million range, but this is an unusual case. Greinke turned down a $100 million contract from the Nationals once to remain on a two-year deal with the Brewers.
