Yeah, I don't think the suggested players from the Braves side would be enough to get half a year of Greinke, much less assurance of an extension.
Other post-season contenders needing a top starter include, well, just about everyone.
Is that article another Bleacher Report article? The fact that the guy mentions that Brandon Beachy is "probably" out of the question makes ME question his knowledge. How many teams would trade for a guy who is out for a year with TJ surgery even IF that particular player could be traded?
Also, I agree with the others in that we could only hope that the Brewers (or any team) views Pastornicky as a "legitimate" shortstop.
Finally, if the Braves land Greinke they can say goodbye to Teheran.
Wren needs to make this happen with an extension. Greinke is that #1 ace the staff needs. The question, what will the Brewers want in return? They will definately be looking at pitching, and looking at current needs, they may seek 1b, SS, or 3b help as well. They have a kid at AA in Hunter Morris who is a 1b, that looks like he may get a shot as early as next year.
Braves have plenty of pitching prospects to look at as we all know. Teheran, Delgado, Minor, Spruill, Gilmartin, and a few others. As far as SS prospects, the Braves could see if the Brewers would bite on Pastornicky as a full-time SS, or could offer Nick Ahmed who has looked pretty good so far. At 3b, the Braves have Terdoslavich, Salcedo, and Kubitza to offer.
