Moore Signs Meche

Moore made it happen. He signed Gil Meche to a five year contract that is believed to be worth $55 million. Moore said that Meche will be considered as the Royals’ potential number one starter. At 28 years old, he should fit nicely into the rotation. I’m not convinced that he’s a number one guy, but he’ll probably be the best number one guy we’ve had in a while.

Moore also released Runelvys Hernandez and that’s good news as far as I’m concerned. I think the guy has talent, but he just never seemed to be willing to do the hard work during the off-season to come into camp in shape. And now that we have other alternatives regarding starters, Hernandez just doesn’t fit into our plans anymore.

No word yet on Batista. Check back for news as it breaks.
