Rotoworld has an article from the KC Star- stating the Royals and Reds could be in trade talk with Austin Kearns being the main discussion.
Despite the addition of Reggie Sanders to their outfield, the Royals still have a great deal of interest in Austin Kearns, according to the Kansas City Star.
It's safe to assume that they're still not giving up Zack Greinke for him, though. Maybe they'd part with either Mike MacDougal or Jeremy Affeldt along with a starter such as Runelvys Hernandez or Denny Bautista. Maybe the Reds would even want both relievers, with the idea that Affeldt could go back into the rotation. If the Royals acquired Kearns, Emil Brown would likely be shoved into a reserve role.
