Can you realistically see "very good pitcher's" wanting to sign with Kansas City? While the Jay's haven't seen the playoffs for the last 2 decades they have put up fairly respectable teams. Kansas City has been the doormat of the American League for quite a stretch.
There's a reason they had to pay Jeremy Guthrie over 8 million a year on a multi year deal - the same Jeremy Guthrie who put up a 1.5whip the last 2 years - Jeremy Guthrie who wouldn't even be our 5th starter and probably not 6th (I'd really rather pitch Jenkins). Can you see Sanchez, McCarthy or Jackson signing with Kansas City for anything other then a ridiculous overpay? I certainly can't.
yeah i dont see many pitchers lining up to play in KC
