Gobble signs one year deal

On Monday, lefthanded specialist Jimmy Gobble agreed to a one year, $1.35 million contract to remain with the Royals. Gobble, who was 0-2 with an 8+ ERA last season will likely remain in the same capacity he had last season with the team.

The Royals have six remaining players eligible for arbitration.

I get the heebie jeebies every time I hear Gobble's name. When he actually walks to the mound, I have to be medicated. He has his moments, I know. But then, he also has his... moments. I could have lived without this signing.

Yeah, I have those TWIX moments myself. Two years ago he was great. Last year, not so much.
