If he had pitched for a major league team, he could have won 22-24 games. It's nice to see a guy recognized for excellence on a team that didn't sniff the play offs. Plus with the emotional issues he has overcome, good for him.

I don't see it. He doesn't like the spotlight at all. He even said upon winning the Cy Young Award that he's afraid people will start to say "hi" to him in and around Orlando, where he lives. Nope, I don't see him leaving KC.
Plus, the best move the Royals made in the last 10 years was signing Grienke to an extension before last season. He'll be a bargain thru '12. Maybe that's the year they move him, if they're still lost and poor, but it'd take an incredible deal for it to be worth it to move Zach the next two years.
I thought the best part of the auction was when the auctioneer was teasing a dinner date with her to lure potential bidders. And then she totally turned on those who didn't pony up. Quality entertainment.
