Joel Sherman of the Post is reporting that the Mets and Royals are in serious talks about Gil Meche. According to Sherman, Omar Minaya and Dayton Moore have already had several conversations about this before the Meetings, and plan to continue those talks here. But don’t get your hopes up, Royals fans: Omar has already told Moore that he’s not taking Jose Guillen in any trade, so if this happens it won’t involve the unloading of any excess baggage.
The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.
Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
