Brewers want to keep Greinke in Milwaukee
NEW YORK -- The Brewers would like to re-sign right-hander Zack Greinke, who is on a roll after pitching seven shutout innings in an 8-0 win over the Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field.

"Sure, why not? We'd like to keep him," Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, who is in town for the Owners Meetings, told CBSSports.com.

Greinke is 4-1, with a 2.88 ERA, but in his last two starts, he's walked none and whiffed 18 over the course of 15 innings. Greinke can become a free agent after the season and would probably grab more than $100 million in the open market. He is in the final year of a four-year, $38 million deal that he signed with Kansas City.

Greinke said he likes playing in Milwaukee.

"Good owner. Good guys in management. Good guys in the clubhouse. Really good, really good," Greinke said.
