MLB Trade Deadline: The Royals May Have Trouble Dealing With Giants, GM Brian Sabean

One of the most popular destinations for Royals OF David DeJesus among pundits around the league is the Giants. Their need for someone who hits consistently and plays good defense and DeJesus's current contract along the Giants available supply of minor leaguers make many think San Francisco is a good landing spot for the Royals outfielder.

However, ESPN's Buster Olney offers up a curveball indicating that Giants GM Brian Sabean isn't the easiest person to deal with.

Olney reports that multiple execs around the league find simply getting ahold of him difficult as he reportedly doesn't return messages all the time. Some go straight for his assistant because of this and call the lack of return calls "disrespectful" to the rest of the league.

This is something to keep in mind as the deadline nears. If San Francisco is such a good spot, it's important that GM Dayton Moore and Sabean develop some sort of working relationship.
