Royals “in listen-only mode” for Zack Greinke trade talks

General manager Dayton Moore told Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star that the Royals are “in listen-only mode” when it comes to Zack Greinke trade talks.

“I haven’t made one call to one organization asking them if they’re interested in Zack Greinke,” Moore said.

Of course, that’s ultimately meaningless. Moore doesn’t have to make any phone calls, because the fact that he’s willing to entertain offers for Greinke is well known by this point and anyone interested is smart enough to give him a call.

It’s a bit like an attractive woman saying, “I haven’t approached one guy at one bar asking them if they’re interested in buying me a drink.”

    The Zack Greinke Auction will begin 20 minutes after Cliff Lee announces his intentions. Bidding will begin with your entire AA far system, plus three of your best AAA players.

    Royals already have Frenchie and Melky, why would they ask for anything more?

      They like the “Best Minor League System” banners.

      They might want AJ. He can be thier new generation Gil Meche.
