Royals Rumors: Greinke, Francoeur

2:55pm: There was one other Greinke rumor; we missed it in ESPN's Rumor Central. Jayson Stark said the Braves inquired but didn't get far.  He added at the time that the Royals may at least listen on him during the Winter Meetings.

1:12pm: Yesterday, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick said the Nationals explored trading for Royals starter Zack Greinke.  Of course, that could've just been a phone call inquiry from Jim Bowden to Dayton Moore that went nowhere.  That's pretty much the only Greinke rumor we've heard in recent weeks.

Today Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com wrote that Moore has grown more fond of Greinke, and is more likely to sign him to an extension than trade him.  We know that's Moore's preference, but Greinke is comfortable going year to year.  He's under team control for two more seasons.

Knobler adds that Moore's interest in Jeff Francoeur has waned, as the Royals already have a crowded outfield.
