Meche
Greinke
Perez
Hudson
Redman / Elarton when he returns


I believe Redman is still a FA.


Right, the last spot will likely be held down by someone like DeLaRosa or maybe Gobble until Elarton can get back. I would think resigning Redman is out of the question now. The idea of a contract around $2-3 million over a couple of years is unrealistic considering the market.

You know, Gil Meche may not be so bad after all...Young power arm, maybe not the most durable, but at the age of 28, this could be his coming out party. The alternatives, when you look at it, aren't thjat appealing. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the Royals will win 70-73 games next year, and Meche could be one of the biggest surprises in baseball.

;-D ;-D to KC

Looks like the deal is between 55-60 Million 8-o

ROTO:

Gil Meche’s five-year deal with the Royals will be worth $55 million-$60 million, the Kansas City Star reports.

Incredible. Meche will lead a Kansas City rotation also set to include Odalis Perez. Brian Bannister and Luke Hudson will be the heavy favorites for the next two spots, with Jorge De La Rosa and Zack Greinke among those likely to battle it out for the remaining opening. Dec. 7 - 1:12 pm et

I wonder if that means the Royals pulled the 3 year, $28 million deal to Miguel Bautista off the table?

No offense to Gil Meche, but this is getting absolutely ridiculous. 55-60 Million for him. WOW is all i can say.

I'm thinking this is one of the worst signings not only of the year, but EVER. You've got to be kidding me.

KC is still TERRIBLE beyond belief, there's no way they win 70 next year.
