Because I needed somewhere to post this link. Consider this a dumping ground for any and all Winter Meetings rumors I guess.
"According to one National League executive, the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves have had serious discussions about a trade that would send outfielder Jeff Francouer to the Royals for pitcher Zack Greinke. The same source said he believed the teams were close to executing the deal, but that Atlanta was holding up any and all trade discussions until the Braves had a resolution of their pujrsuit [sic] of right-hander A.J. Burnett."
Wait what? Jeff Francouer, 2008: .239/.294/.359
