Meche Declines Jays 4-year, $40 Million Offer
The right-hander went 11-8 this past season with a 4.48 ERA in 32 starts for the Mariners.
Meche had his heart set on going to the Cubs, however, it was extremely difficult for him to pass on the Royals offer.
Blue Jays General Manager J.P. Ricciardi was informed this morning that Meche would not come to Toronto.
"They told us this morning they're not coming here," Ricciardi said.
The announcement to the Jays came after Meche slept on all the final offers from the Cubs, Jays and Royals.
InsideTheDome reported Wednesday that the Blue Jays were expected to raise their initial 4-year, $36 million offer, to 4-years worth $40 million.
A source close to the negotiations told InsideTheDome that Ricciardi did extend his offer to Meche in a meeting last night.
It's not known what the Cubs were offering Meche.
