Strangely enough I keep hearing rumors that the Jays have expressed some interest in getting Alex Gordon. Not that I think the Royals would move him even now after so many disappointments, but it would be interesting to see what type of talent would be in the discussion between Moore and other GMs when it came to Gordon.
Yup. There were rumours about that. The rumour was that the Jays were looking to trade for Greinke and Gordon. What I've heard was that the Royals would get Marcum and two top prospects.
I've heard all sorts of names tossed around but I don't take many of them too serious. If what is supposedly Moore's asking price for Greinke is true, then I don't think the Jays match up real well. Then again I don't think any team who isn't one pitcher away from being a legitimate playoff contender matches up real well when the asking price is your first born son.

If the Royals had a someone waiting in the wings in the OF other than potential 4th OF type guys I could see something like that happening, but as it stands right now Gordon is basically the most reliable option they have (as scary as that is). Maybe Moore will go the Pods/Ankiel free agent route again this season which would give him a little more wiggle room to move Gordon.
