Yep....all they need to do now is bring back "Cy" Chen.

By the way it's "Catfish" Guthrie.

Good to see career-long mediocrity is rewarded so handsomely.......

Great, first Hunter is back in the AL central, now Guthrie is in KC for 3 more years. Awesome.

I'm tired of being wary of those two mediocre pitchers, or KC in general. I hope we bomb the crap out of them next year.

According to the article linked in OP, Guthrie had a 3.16 ERA over 14 starts after leaving the Rockies last year. Eight million a year is basically the going rate for a veteran #4 at best pitcher, which is probably what he has been over his career. Not just anybody can go out and pitch 200 innings at league average ERA.
