Doesn't hurt to offer, but he'll probably say F*** You. Greinke is many many times more valuable than Cespedes.

Cespedes for Grienke would be a gigantic steal and incredible trade for you.

Not a chance you are getting Zach for Cespedes. Maybe Gio or HellBoy. Even that is questionable. Cespedes has had a nice start but 9 strike outs in 16 at bats is going to make most owners hesitant about trading for him.

If someone sent me that trade I would be insulted.

I'd be more likely to send a note saying you'd like to move OF for SP, and see if you can get a deal going. Becuase Cespedes for Greinke is a complete non-starter for me.
