The Royals haven't signed Jeff Francoeur. Yet.
A handful of moves were made or finalized today, but despite a flurry of lunchtime rumors surrounding Jeff Francoeur, nothing changed on the Royals front. The Francoeur thing is just... odd. For a moment, let's put aside the simple fact that he's not a very good baseball player and it's silly that the Royals want him. Just think about how long we've been hearing this rumor. It's remarkable. Weirder still, since the Francoeur rumors began, Francoeur's actually been traded, twice, just not to the Royals. Either the rumors have been mostly wrong or something keeps getting in the way of these two star crossed lovers.
