It's hard to believe it was only 2 years ago when baseball people were cursing the Mets for messing up the market when they gave Benson his 3 year deal worth around $21 million.

Also, is $5 million that important to Meche that he'd rather play in KC than Chigaco or even Toronto?

That is exactly what I was thinking.

You were thinking it, too.

Z, your humor in this instance just doesn't seem to Meche well with the rest of the board.

I'd be too embarrassed to accept that deal if I was Meche.

Meche to get $55 million-$60 million from Royals


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

Boras must be jumping for joy.

Omar and Jeffy just tossed their lunch.

Just changing to post to 2004 or 2005 terms and reminding you that predicting franchise futures hasn't exactly been the strong suit of message-boarders during the FA signing period.

The draft now has a slotting system and the royals have a good GM. KC is a baseball town. Give those fans a reason to believe and they'll get their butts in teh seat quick and generate revenue.

I think it's cool that they've got a pitcher with good stuff who possibly, possibly could help get this turnaround started. Good luck to them.

Did he get a NTC? Otherwise, don't get too comfy Gil.
