With the trade deadline on the horizon who on the Royals is untouchable?

Grienke, Soria, Aviles, Guillen, maybe Mahay, couple guys I'm forgetting probably

david dejesus, alex gorden, brian bannister, mark grudzeilanik

^ Not Soria or Aviles?

Grudz is totally expendable... let the DUI kid take his spot.

Fo real tho, Greinke, Soria, and probably Gordon are the only real untouchables, although I doubt we'd see DeJesus, Butler, or Guillen traded anytime soon.

actually, i dont think the royals will make any monster trades, or trade value for prospects this year. we've done that over and over to no avail. this year we left most everything alone, we added some f.a.'s, got rid of that g.d. sweeney, and retired some japanese pitchers. but they let the lineup mature...and its showing some progress. its not the right time to cast off starters for a "maybe" kind of guy.

What about Grudz? I know the market for him isn't great, but he is old and isn't really needed. Then again, no grudz = either the alcoholic wife beater or the german who can't hit. Grudz for a SS?
