Old friend alert.

The Major League season is upon us, and a few old friends are already making waves. Zack Greinke was hammered in his Diamondbacks debut after signing a $206 million contract. At the opposite end of the payscale, former Royals farmhand Daniel Stumpf, now a Rule 5 pick for the Phillies, was hammered as well. Gone are World Series friends like Ben Zobrist (Cubs) and Johnny Cueto (Giants), although Johnny is still his old wacky self.
