The Royals have signed Gil Meche to a 5-year, $55M contract. Unless there's another pitcher named Gil Meche that I haven't heard of, the Royals just gave a pitcher with career ERA+ of 96 $11M a year through 2011.
The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Toronto Blue Jays are close to signing Chris Gomez. Why is this important? The Indians had some interest in him as their utility infielder.
