Reached a deal with the Royals yesterday. $4 million for another year.

Had Alex Gordon played this year (the last day I can say that) the way he played in 2011, the Royals might have picked up his option and paid him $23 million next year.

And they might not have.

In any event, he didn't come close. He didn't even, according to Fangraphs, provide as many wins above average as the year before.

So he's a free agent. He's saying he's going to retire if he can't come to an agreement with the Royals on what his salary should be next year. He doesn't seem to be talking to anyone else.
