It's already been reported that the Giants had made "genuine progress" regarding a potential David DeJesus trade before the Royals outfielder suffered a season-ending thumb injury.
Now another one of the teams that were interested pre-injury, the Red Sox, were apparently getting serious, according to Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com.
Rival exec believes Red Sox were serious on DeJesus before injury. "They always seem to pull something off late," exec said.
Ah, but the Royals waited. To be honest, I can't blame them for waiting. You certainly can't predict injuries and, from Dayton Moore' standpoint, DeJesus' value would only increase as the deadline got closer so hanging onto him until the last minute was probably the best strategy.
