No shite. If KC was willing to unload Myers for a couple of guys like Shields and Davis, surely we could have made a deal that didn't include Teheran, Minor, or Simmons. Damn.

I am thinking KC gave up Myers and Butler or Gordon.... I don't think they would really part with Homser or Moustakas and TB wants MLB ready players.

The Reds paid a similar price to this for Latos.


They didn't give up a player like Wil Myers though. They gave up a few top 10 prospects who were blocked by other players but it wasn't a king's ransom by any means.

I still do not understand this trade. Shields isn't some pitcher that will be the centerpiece of their rotation for years to come. He's 31. And Davis has been fairly inconsistent.

Pretty good trade for Tampa though. Avoid having to pay Shields and get a great hitting prospect when they are loaded with young pitchers.

If Dayton Moore is employed tomorrow morning there is something wrong.

What an absolutely brutal raping by Tampa.

Does Myers go back to being a Catcher for TB?

Heyman does not know shite when it comes to prospects or their value.

Always declares the team who gets more MLB talent the winner of trades.

No joke, just like in fantasy people have a tendency to over value prospects.

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC


yeah i agree. not too bad to get 2 guys in the rotation for a couple prospects, even if one of them was wil myers. the royals system is loaded and the rotation sucks so much dick.

Myers may not even hit in majors... We shall see but reality it is giving up a proven pitcher and a fringe MLB pitcher for unknowns

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC


Are you saying he won't be a stud?

Or are you playing devils advocate and purposely taking an ambiguous approach as to how good you think Myers will be
