Guillen being gone can't happen soon enough for me. I just hope DM finds a way to squeeze some young talent out of somebody by trading him.

I wouldn't move Dejesus without getting something in return of value. As far as Guillen, I wish we'd just release him if nobody's willing to play ball.

Well, with DeJesus, it's pretty simple: get something better than a first-round pick and a sandwich pick. Or don't trade him.

At least we have some leverage with him. I hope Farnsworth's gone sooner than later.

He'll net a lottery ticket. Every now and then those hit.

The more I look at DD's numbers among OF he is awfully underrated. Sans the HR's he is really good and relatively young with good years left. IF we would trade him we really need to be sure and get something.

Are the Giants still interested in Dejesus? Lot of good pitching has come out of that organization lately.

Giants would be a great trade partner. Sabean hasn't figured it out at all.

Guillen will probably go on waivers after the deadline.
DeJesus will be delt only if someone is desperate to give the Royals way more in return. Royals are in a great posotion with DDJ.
Posednik may be a better option to trade, won't get the same return that DDJ will, but a team like San Diego who is offensive starved may be a willing trade partner. Posednik is the perfect player for the stadium San Diego plays in.

Sure was cursing Farnsworth last night, even though he ended up getting the W.

"We're in it"?

In what? The toilet? Last place? Yep, you're "in it".

18 under and 15.5 back - Not "in it" any more. Right?

I know, I know, the Cubs suck too. The haven't won a World Series in over 100 years. Very good. Very good.

Well, hopefully in a few years the Royals can have a Marlins or Rays type of "youth movement" resurgence. Time will tell.

Fire away kiddies!

Little late to the party Gutter. Yost made the statement about three weeks ago when we only had one foot in the drain, now I'm sure he wouldn't issue such a statement.
BTW, surprised Lee hasn't been dealt yet?

Just me being me. 3 weeks ago when I read Yost's statement I admired his optimism. See what can happen in 3 weeks? When the Pale Hose (White Sox) were down 9 games the Sox pitching coach said ot that, "We saw death, and I don't think we fear it anymore".

As far as Lee - he vetoed a trade to the Angels. I thought it might be a good move for him. He has a no trade clause. It's a shame he is such a nice guy or Cubs fans might turn him in to the next Todd Hundley* which I wouldn't mind seeing. Sure Lee has done a lot and is a great guy but he must lead the majors in hitting in to double plays over the past 3 seasons. He's one of those guys who hits well when there is no pressure. Otherwise, he blows nuts.

*Todd Hundley, Chicago Cubs: A constant target of boos at Wrigley, Hundley once flipped off the fans during a home run trot, likely figuring he wouldn't get to run around the bases many more times. It's not easy to cheese off a fan base that loves your dad, but Hundley pulled it off.
