(CBS) Call Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke what you will, but the guy is honest.

In an interview with CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Greinke opened up about what the deciding factor was in him choosing to sign with the Dodgers. Rather, what the deciding factors were – all 147 million of them.

“It’s obviously the No. 1 thing,” Greinke told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. “I could play for the worst team if they paid the most. … If the last-place team offers $200 million and the first-place team offers $10, I’m going to go for the $200-million no matter what team it was.

“The worst comment in the world has got to be when a guy who’s getting $100 million says he wants to ‘take care of my family.'”
