Francoeur-Greinke Rumor Shot Down

3:05pm: As expected, Dayton Moore shot this down.

1:38pm: ESPN's Steve Phillips says there's nothing to this rumor.

9:01am: From: Tony Massarotti of the Boston Globe:

According to one National League executive, the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves have had serious discussions about a trade that would send outfielder Jeff Francouer to the Royals for pitcher Zack Greinke. The same source said he believed the teams were close to executing the deal, but that Atlanta was holding up any and all trade discussions until the Braves had a resolution of their pursuit of right-hander A.J. Burnett.

I'd be surprised to see this happen without the Braves adding significant pitching to their offer for Greinke.  But in general I am skeptical that anything like this is close, even given the Burnett contingency.  We probably would've heard some rumbling from Dave O'Brien, Mark Bowman, Bob Dutton, or Dick Kaegel.
