The M’s avoided arbitration with Gil Meche, bringing him back for 2005 at $2.5 million, a little less than he probably would have gotten had an arbitor decided his salary. For as much as we’ve questioned Meche and the overexcitement surrounding his abilities, he’s obviously a good deal at this price.
This will be my last post for a little while. I’m just… tired, and I want to spend some time doing and writing about things other than baseball. I’ll be back relatively soon, no worries, and Derek and Jason will hold down the fort just fine. And, you know, if the M’s trade for Babe Ruth, I’ll call off the break.
