    Haren is on Friday, not sure why though.

    Lets not pretend like the Royals gave up anything of value, just a 27 year old reliever who's never pitched in the majors before.

    Hmm... Qualifying offers are due Friday. Maybe that has something to do with it? I need to read the CBA again.


    I heard you were looking for me.

    They didn't give up anything of value, but they took on $13 million for a -0.9 fWAR pitcher.

    It's the Royals, you really think they're paying the full 13 million?

    Just a hunch but I think he will be a free agent. I would love to have him as well as Carlos V and Anibal S.

    I think if they're not being paid $6 million or so beyond his contract, it's worth the LOL.

    I agree in part...unless he feels he can build up value if that velo comes back. I would love to ship them some bullpen arm Named Carlos Marmol.

    I think he'd look for at least 2 years with option in case what you stated above goes the opposite way. Guess neither of us can be sure til it happens.

    I kind of like the idea of a Peavy like contact with 2 years and an option if he meets some certain contingency
