MLB Trade Deadline Predictions: Royals Keep Both DeJesus And Guillen

As we've been wading through this MLB trade deadline business, it seemed apparent that someone from the Royals would be traded. Nearly half the team has been brought up in trade talks because the Royals are now perceived to be sellers at the deadline and they've got a nice bevy of talent in the minor leagues.

The two biggest names -- David DeJesus and Jose Guillen -- are expected to be given serious consideration in any trades assuming the deal is right.

I've previously argued that the Royals should take just about anything in return for Guillen considering he doesn't bring much to the table in the last few months of the season with the Royals out of it.

Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors recently hosted a chat and opined that there's a 60 percent chance Kyle Farnsworth gets traded -- this is a good thing considering Farnsworth is in a similar situation as Guillen. Then he said there's only a 20 percent chance Guillen gets moved and he predicted DeJesus would stay.

Now, these were all just predictions, but I don't think I would be too happy if Guillen was a member of the Royals following the deadline. DeJesus I would prefer not to trade (depending on the offer, of course) because he's so valuable to the Royals.
