Six years ago, the Royals could afford to pay Gil Meche 5/$55M. But today, 5/$70M for Anibal Sanchez is too rich for their blood?
As has been said previously, if the trade for Santana limits our ability to sign AS.....well, that's a disgrace. I know the timing of the Santana deal was important because the Angels had to move him or let him go, but damn. If AS goes for 5/70, then once again DM hasn't been able to forecast the market and moved too soon on lesser players. That seems to happen every off-season. One of the skills necessary for a GM to succeed is to predict the market, as difficult as that may be. He's generally failed in that category.

With all that said, I'm guessing AS goes for more than 5/70. Once Greinke falls off, the teams left will have money to spend and AS is the next best guy.
