Jose Guillen Denies Report

WEDNESDAY: Joe Posnanski writes that while the ESPN report wasn't exactly true, it "did not completely miss the target, either."  GM Dayton Moore admitted that "Jose Guillen likes attention."  But, Moore knew what he was getting into.

TUESDAY, 6:13pm: Guillen denied the report entirely.

2:50pm: According to ESPN's Enrique Rojas, Royals outfielder Jose Guillen is unhappy in Kansas City and wants out.  He is reportedly not on speaking terms with manager Trey Hillman.  He also doesn't think the Royals are doing enough for build a contender for 2009-10.

Guillen would even defer some of the $24MM owed to him for 2009-10, if it would increase the chances of a trade.  He is hitting .260/.287/.446 in 408 plate appearances, which is actually pretty bad.  29 left fielders have been more productive this year, including Willie Harris.

ESPN's Jayson Stark wrote on Thursday that the Braves asked about Guillen but the Royals wanted a cornerstone-type player like Gorkys Hernandez in return.

Jose Guillen Wants To Be Traded

I am not so sure it is about who wants him, rather, didn't he know that the Royals are not close to playoff for at least 3-4 years before signing his contract.  Jose Guillen signed with the Royals becuase it was the most money.  If the Royals can trade him great.  They need more players.  Most of their prospects have been busts so far.  Teahan, not good.  Gordon, making progress.  Butler, can't stay in the majors.  Luke, has been awful.  Good luck, Guillen, the Royals are going to be a bad team for a long while.
