Re: Royals Acquire Ervin Santana and cash from Angels for Brandon Sisk
Not sure why they wouldn't have sent the whole $1M to get anything at all in return, since they were on the hook for all of it otherwise. Looks like they're trying to do something similar with Haren, his buyout is $3.5M and they're apparently close enough to budget that it could make a difference toward keeping Greinke and/or Hunter.
