MLB Trade Deadline: ESPN's Buster Olney Says 'No Chance' He Would Do Possible Royals, Angels Deal

A report surfaced this week that the Angels offered the Royals pitcher Sean O'Sullivan and a "fringe prospect" for third baseman Alberto Callaspo.

ESPN's Buster Olney was asked on 810 WHB's Border Patrol whether he would do this deal.

"Absolutely, no chance," he said. "I think he's got more value than that. You get the feeling that Callaspo's going to be in the big leagues a long time. Sean O'Sullivan is a space holder and when you look at the Royals and where they are now, by the time they start to turn the corner he wouldn't even be part of the team because his service time's gonna advance so absolutely not."

Callaspo will draw some interest and with Mike Moustakas coming up the Royals have the motivation to move him. This is an interesting situation to keep an eye.
