Some de la Rosa speculation

MLB Trade Rumors posted their annual Top 50 Free Agents list today and has one of the players predicted to land in KC, former Royal Jorge de la Rosa.

12.  Jorge De La Rosa - Royals.  Though De La Rosa at least gets groundballs, some consider
him another Oliver Perez waiting to happen.  Much will depend on whether De La Rosa requires 
more than three years or $10MM annually.  The Pirates and Nationals seem like potential suitors 
as well, if he can't find common ground with the Rockies.

JDLR is obviously a much improved pitcher since being traded to the Rockies. With KC in 2006,07 he went 11-16 with a 5.64 ERA (82 ERA+) and 1.64 WHIP in 178.2 innings. With the Rockies, the last three seasons, he's gone 34-24 with a 4.49 ERA (104 ERA+) and 1.38 WHIP in 436.2 innings. While still prone to extreme bouts of wildness (4.5 career BB/9) he has been getting more strikeouts (8.9 SO/9 as a Rockie), which includes a career best 193 in 2009 (in just 185 innings).

I can't see Moore offering a 3/30 contract given his intention to cut payroll. I would imagine this could only happen if Greinke is traded (which I of course oppose). Should his price fall though, and he can be obtained without trading Greinke, Moore should absolutely go after him. Piggybacking off my last post I would like a 1-4 of Greinke/Hochevar/JDLR/Tejeda a lot.
