Royals after Mench? 

According to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star, the Royals only traded for Eli Marrero after "making no progress last weekend at the winter meetings in pursuing their two long-time trade targets: Kevin Mench of the Texas Rangers and Austin Kearns of the Cincinnati Reds."

Particularly interesting is Dutton's comment that the Rangers want a "No. 1 starter" for Mench.

I know that a lot of teams have been interested in Mench for a while, prompted by his power potential and his having butted heads with both Jerry Narron and Buck Showalter.

But the notion that Hart is holding out for a #1 starter for Mench is pretty remarkable.
