Greinke contemplated retirement, and Kansas City got him. If he had been dissatisfied with the contents of the contract, which had a high incentive ratio, he could have taken off his uniform without regret, but Greinke accepted the terms of the contract. Greinkee’s ‘narcissism’, always full of confidence in his own achievements, is revealed even at an age of infidelity.
