It's being reported across blogdom that the Royals have "entered the bidding" with the Mariners for the services of Jarrod Washburn. He is a Boras client, and I've seen it blogged that the Mariners may have offered him $1.5M but he's holding out for more.
Should the Royals cough up say $2M for Jarrod Washburn this season? Poll and stats after the jump...
