MLB Trade Deadline: Royals Reportedly Not Interested In Mets Trade

Over the past 24 hours reports have surfaced that the Royals and Mets were talking trade and the names being throw around included Jose Guillen, Kyle Farnsworth and Gil Meche on the Royals Side and Oliver Perez, Luis Castillo and Jeff Francoeur on the Mets side.

Yeah, that's not happening, according to several reports.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com:

Hearing Royals aren't enamored of possible Mets deal.

Jayson Stark of ESPN.com:

All that Ollie Perez/JeffFrancoeur/Gil Meche/Jose Guillen Mets-Royals talk has been fun. But source says KC has "no interest."

It seemed to dramatic and blockbustery (Is that even a word?) for me anyway. Swapping Perez for Meche made no sense.

The Royals interest in Francoeur did make sense on a number of levels so that's something to at least keep an eye on.

Stick here for more MLB trade deadline rumors.
