Royals Future FA SP Acquisitions

A lot of talk this off-season was about whether or not the Royals should make a run at Edwin Jackson. Some determined it would be a waste of money in 2012 considering they would be paying the free agent premium to a pitcher in a non-contending year (which, odds are, would be the best of his contract). Some said they'd be better served sitting out on the 2012 FA SP market and waiting for 2013 when a number of elite starters were projected to become free agents. Given their budget limitations and an influx of wealth and changes of leadership/ownership in the largest markets, they may have to sit out yet again or pay an hefty premium.

With the financial situations of the Dodgers and Mets getting a boost this off-season, a Cubs franchise freeing itself of its dead-weight contracts, the Angels and Rangers having unseen financial restrictions, and the ever-present threat of the Yankees and Red Sox, do the Royals have a legitimate chance at acquiring talented pitching through free agency that makes sense for The Process (TM)?
