It was reported earlier this month that free agent right-hander Zack Greinke is on the Dodgers' list of desired offseason acquisitions. And his name is apparently pretty high up on that list, too.

Los Angeles' payroll is already hovering near $200 million, but that doesn't seem to matter to the club's higher-ups. Brandon League scored a ridiculous three-year, $22.5 million contract in late October.
