I just don't see this happening Fish. The Royals love having him as a member of the clubhouse and I think Frenchy genunitely likes being here too. To me, business is business, it SHOULD happen.

I, along with many others, have doubts that the Royals see any urgency in making this happen, and that even if they do, they'll do so by making an alternative move that makes everyone else scratch their heads.

Kind of makes you wonder what the Royals will do if they're within five games in a month.

Well...keep in mind that a move now (whether internal or external) will have more impact (5/6 starts, 100-125 plate appearances) than a move a month from now.

4 back now. 5 games below .500 since mid-May. Pretty good bounce back for Chen today.

Man, the offense really needs to get it going.

This pitching staff isn't going to hold up....the offense needs to start helping out more.

Anybody know when Sal Perez is coming up?

He's played a handful of games so far in Omaha...I'm sure they're treating this like his spring training.

Maybe after the all-star break?

Oh wow.

Didn't think it would be that soon.

It'll be nice having him back.....get hm and Cain back...bring up Myers...now we're talking.

Edit: Rany just tweeted Perez will probably be behind the plate Friday night. Good stuff.

I hated the rash of injuries the Royals have been hampered with, but the fact they've hung in with the guys they have is a feat in itself.

Perez, Cain, (hopefully) Myers all joining the big league club in the near future will almost act like a mid-season move in itself.

I don't care what the Royals do with Frenchy, but they NEED to make room for Myers somehow, some way, soon.

Don't let me down Dayton Moore...(which of course means he will)

So that means Dyson goes down, cut either Pena or Q and what other move? Cut Mitch?

Frenchy's 7 million dollar contract next year will be an albatross in trying to interest anyone.
Jeff is here through next season.

This.

I just had this conversation last night. The Royals did overpay for Francoeur, but not by a lot. I think if the Royals were willing to eat $2 Million for a season, there would be several teams interested.

My preference would be get rid of Quintero when Perez comes back, and cut Meier when either Cain or Myers comes up.

From what I read, the Royals offered both Francoeur and Melky Cabrera the same contract this past off-season. Francoeur said yes, Melky said no...bye bye Melky.

Things might be a bit different had Melky said yes to it.

That's my preference as well, so my guess is that DM has a different opinion. I just have little faith in him at this point.
