MLB Trade Deadline: Royals' Willie Bloomquist Doesn't Mind Trade Rumors

For some players, the MLB trade deadline represents a stressful time because their name is quite often throw out in trade rumors. For Royals' Willie Bloomquist, it's a different story.

“It shows that people still know who you are. If there’s some interest in you, that’s not a bad thing. That means people like you, and you’re doing something right.”

As Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star points out, Bloomquist has been linked to the Red Sox, Phillies and Yankees.

Bloomquist would cost about $850,000 the rest of the way and his versatility -- he can play everywhere except pitcher and catcher -- is the big selling point.
