Meche signs with KC

Nothing official yet but I hear on the radio we have the highest bid and it sounds likely we will get him for 4yrs/45mil 8-o

We also released fatty(Runylves) Hernandez as well. Good riddance!!

Well, in the Royals' defense, they pretty much have to overpay to attract anyone there. This contract is definitely bad, but they didn't have much of a choice if they really wanted to sign a FA pitcher.

I guess this makes Meche the ace and moves Bannister back to starter #2 ;-D.

Sounds like its pretty much a done deal. No links, just listening to the radio...

I'm awaiting the "awful deal for the Royals" posts. Followed shortly by "why don't the Royals spend more money" posts.

ESPN's Steve Phillips reports that the Royals and right-hander Gil Meche have agreed to terms on a five-year deal.
That's new. Phillips and FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal previously reported that it'd be a four-year, $45 million contract. No word on the new terms yet.

I believe Redman is still a FA.
