10- Royals sign pitcher Gil Meche for five years, $55 million

What do you think? Right? Wrong? Talk amongst yourselves.

A few thoughts:
*Dodgers as WS champs?
*Yankees miss the playoffs?
*Mets win NL East despite losing Pedro until the All-Star break?
*Cubs spend, spend, spend and still lose?
*Red Sox finally win the AL East?
*Phillies make the playoffs? (That sound you just heard was Leanne laughing...)
*Will Bronson Arroyo be ace-like again for the Reds? (my gut says no)
*Will the Marlins have another "magic carpet ride" of a season?

And the most important question...
IS IT APRIL YET?!
