1973 The Royals, in a controversial move, deal outfielder Lou Piniella and pitcher Ken Wright to the Yankees for 38 year-old right-hander Lindy McDaniel, who wins a total of only six games during his two years with the club. The trade draws the Kansas City fans' ire when their departed 29 year-old outfielder enjoys 11 solid seasons in the Bronx, batting .295 and playing a major role in New York's four appearances in the World Series.
2006 Near the end of the Winter Meetings, the Royals sign Gil Meche to a five-year deal valued $55 million, which matches Mike Sweeney's contract as the largest in franchise history. During his five years in the major leagues, all with the Mariners, the 28 year-old right-hander has compiled a 55-44 career record with an earned-run average of 4.65 in 147 games.
