Outfielders Josh Willingham and David DeJesus say they don't closely follow the latest trade rumors. They both have other sources to track that information.

"Just what my wife tells me," Willingham said.

Same with DeJesus, who said, "I leave that to my wife. She goes to the trade rumor sites."

Trade speculation is nothing new for either player. In fact, if DeJesus (as a Royal) hadn't broken his thumb a year ago Friday, pursuing a long fly by Derek Jeter at Yankee Stadium, the Giants might have traded for him.

Instead, he was dealt to Oakland in November.

"It was one of those freak things that happen in baseball," DeJesus said. "I don't ever ask 'what if?' I'm here now."
