Royals not interested in top 5 prospect in all of baseball

11:23am: The Yankees dangled Jesus Montero in talks for Joakim Soria, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark, but the Royals weren't interested.

 

 

So the re-building Royals aren't interested in a consensus top 5 prospect in all of baseball.  I personally hope that this report isn't valid because this makes no sense.  The Yankees appear willing to put a big package together for Soria and the Royals appear to not be willing to make the move.  If the Royals plan on converting Soria to a starter then I understand this move, however, holding onto a closer with huge value on a 70 win team seems ridiculous to me.  This is the same Jesus Montero that the Mariners about traded Cliff Lee for right?  Am I missing something here?
