* In need of more punch in their lineup, the Giants have been "heavily" scouting Royals outfielder Jose Guillen, Jon Heyman of SI.com and MLB Network wrote via Twitter. Meanwhile, Guillen's teammate, Scott Podsednik, is also drawing intrigue. FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal wrote via Twitter that Kansas City is being "bombarded" by National League West teams interested in the speedy left fielder.

Soria's no-trade clause

2

It has been noted somewhere amidst all the threads here that Soria has the Yankees as one of six teams on his no-trade list. Leaving aside just what that means; anybody know who the other five teams are?

#Royals say RHP Gil Meche will need shoulder surgey and miss the rest of the year.

Moustakas off to a cold start -- **With Alberto Callaspo shipped off to Anaheim and Alex Gordon definitely an outfielder, Mike Moustakas is the front runner to open 2011 as the Royals third baseman. He's off to a cold start his first two weeks at Omaha, hitting .220/.231/.380 in his first 13 games. He's shown some pop with two doubles and two homers, but his plate discipline has been dismal with one walk and nine strikeouts so far. Sample size is an issue of course, but check out the platoon split: 2-for-22 against lefties (.091), 9-for-28 (.321) with all of his extra base hits against right-handers. "A little overmatched right now" is what I've heard from a PCL source. I hope to get to see him play in person sometime in August.

Royals blog Royals v. Pavano- Pods: 7 for 26; Kendall: 10 for 33; Butler: 12 for 30; Guillen: 7 for 19; Ankiel: 0 for 5; Betemit: No PAs; Betancourt: 5 for 15; Getz: 1 for 7 This is the 13th consecutive time that Yost has changed the lineup between two games (and changed the batting order too). After all, gotta have Ankiel's 0 for 5 with 3 Ks in the 5 spot!

Soria has Yanks on NO-TRADE list

"The fact the Yankees are on Soria's no-trade list should not be read to mean he would decline a trade to New York. It likely gives Soria some leverage if a deal were struck. "

MLB Power Rankings

In 2009, the average game featured 9.2 runs. In 2010, the average game has featured 8.9 runs. That's a drop of 0.3 runs per game - between two teams - or, in other terms, a drop of 3%. Is that really so huge? Would people really even be aware of a 3% dip in run scoring if they were left to their own devices?

On Jose Guillen rumors: Was told by one club that KC has "no real options" to move him, even if they take $ & ask very little back In fact, the same source speculates KC "might be done." DeJesus hurt. Very little action on Guillen, Bannister, Davies, Farnsworth
