I bet you could get Greinke for Basabe and eating 100% of Greinke's contract. I would certainly go for this deal... IF we sign Harper.

If we sign Harper, there are 2 things that need to happen right after:

Trade for Greinke
Sign Adam Jones (2 yrs, 30 mil)
Sign Nelson Cruz (2 yrs, 36 mil)

By June your line-up:
1. Madrigal (2b)
2. Anderson (SS)
3. Harper (RF)
4. Cruz (DH)
5. Abreu (1B)
6. Jimenez (LF)
7. Jones (CF)
8. Castillo (C)
9. Moncada (3B)

Greinke is set to make $34.5 million for 2019 then $35 million per for 2020 and 2021 and he's 34. He's still a good pitcher but he's projected to decline. If the White Sox can get Harper, I'd offer Arizona something less than Basabe for taking on that $100 million in return. I'd definitely go after him if Bryce came to the South Side.

No thanks on Adam Jones, though. That's a lot of money for a replacement level player.

With that lineup you just put Engle or another defensive stalwart to help Eloy (who we don't know how he will look out there yet)...you don't need Jones at those dollars.

Greinke would reasonably be able to fetch a similar contract if he was a free agent right now.

Arizona is going to get a top 100 prospect for him. The question is whether or not they're going to have to throw in money. They certainly shouldn't feel obligated to.
