Default Royals DFA Francoeur, maybe a cheap pickup for the Sox?

http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...s_mlb&c_id=mlb

If we deal Rios, Francoeur could be picked up for cheap if he clears waivers and the Royals release him, since the Royals will still be on the hook for his salary. Then we could ship out one of our AAA/AAAA outfielders.

He's a really bad hitter. Wouldn't consider him unless he was absolutely free. Not one prospect of any sort - none. Would look to someone in Charlotte first.

IMO he'd be good to trot out against lefties, either as an OF or DH. But he'll probably wind up in Japan.

Yeah, he's terrible. He is not any better at this point than Danks, Wise, or probably even Blake Tekotte.

Meh. We're really struggling to shuffle the talentless here. I wouldn't care either way.
