Hopefully this isn't Mark Redmon, 2006.

The Gil Meche sweepstakes are nearly over, and the Kansas City Royals are looking like the winners.

ESPN's Steve Phillips reported Thursday that the Royals were closing in on a four-year deal with the right-hander worth a reported $45 million.

Meche, a six-year veteran, has a career record of 55-44 and a 4.65 earned-run average, all with the Seattle Mariners. He was 11-8 for the Mariners last season with a 4.48 ERA.

It's a good sign. Hopefully Moore can convince Glass to open the purse strings a little more so they can build a reputable staff.

So if you were building a pitching staff on a budget, who's available this offseason that you'd pick up?

"building a piching staff on a budget" is what KC has done for 20 years. it doesn't work. build your position roster on a budget. spend $$$ for the arms.

The only starting pitcher they should consider is Miguel Batista.

KC can choose from a lot of pitchers for next year's rotation:

1 Gil Meche
2 Odalis Perez
3 Zack Greinke
4 Brian Bannister
5 Luke Hudson

Others in consideration: Scott Elarton, Luke Hochevar (probably will still be in the minors next year), and Jorge De La Rosa (should go to AAA)

Rex-
I like the looks of that rotation, except for Greinke, actually. People don't realize that that kid has mental problems, and I am not just trying to be a d!ck. i saw him interviewed down in wichita last season, he is not right in the head. there is a reason why he left camp last spring and then came back, but was never brought up.

the lineup doesn't look half bad, actually, otherwise.

He actually did get called up by the Royals in September.

He pitched in three games, was 1-0, 4.26 ERA, 6.1 ING, 5 K/3 BB.

He's still very young(23) and has time to get his mental problems resolved hopefully.

I thought he did a good job at Wichita too considering his prior mental breakdown. 8-3, 4.34 ERA, 94 K/27 BB

oops, i quit watching when they didn't call up the bash brothers. no joke. so my bad, i didn't realize he did get the call.

i hope for the best for Greinke, but i don't think he'll amount to much, just a lot more than baseball going on in his head. luckily he is young and talented, so hopefully he pulls out of it all.

DM knows his stuff:

Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox, Giants, Indians, Devil Rays and Royals are the teams pursuing free agent Eric Gagne.

I don't think even DM can pull this one off.

Nice pick up DM but don't stop there. Get a couple more arms and maybe a bat and we have it going.

If anybody could grab Gagne, it's Moore. I've been wanting the Royals to pick up somebody with a name to give them a little bit of reputation for awhile, and Gagne could do it.

The comment about on a budget. The Royals will work on a budget as long as Glass owns them. Moore is doing what you suggested, spending money on a pitching staff and doing what he can with the field, but we all know they weren't going after Liddle for 10m/year.

Don't count out the Royals for Gagne, but I think Dotel has a better chance of signing here than Gagne. Although, Both want one year deals worth about 4 Mil, so if we could choose, I would go with Gagne. I think we get one of these guys otherwise I don't think Moore would have traded Burgos.
