Myers being the top prospect in the game with 6 full years of control makes him valuable enough alone to make him worth more than Davis and Shields.

shite I forgot about Alex Cobb. Hopefully it's just Davis/Shields for Myers and prospects

James shields is 31. Myers is the best hitting prospect in baseball.

KC is stupid if they give up any more than him.

They need to at least be getting a top prospect along with Shields.

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
what the hell is KC doing anyway?

spending a ton of money and giving up the best prospect in the game for Guthrie, Santana, Shields, and Davis with Hochevar and Bruce Chen coming back too.

very mediocre

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
I still think KC gave up more than Myers for them.... I mean we are talking KC and TB from earlier reports was looking for a great deal to actually trade Shields. His numbers past 2 seasons have been among some of best

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
KC got robbed. You trade a prospect like Wil Myers for a pitcher like David Price not Shields and Davis. Shields is a pitcher more on the Mat Latos level and you didn't see the Reds giving up Aroldis Chapman for him. And the Royals don't need another reliever. Why did they trade for Davis? It makes no sense.

Wow. Huge get for the Rays! Wil Myers is that middle of the order bat they need to go with Longoria. He is young and cheap too.

Easy there. Dude had one really good year last year, the others were good but not great. Most of which came from KCR super hitter friendly PCL team. Go look at all the crazy numbers their recent prospects put up their. He's good and has potential but he's not THAT good. I think they traded him because he spells his name Wil, thats trade worthy imo.

Well Orodizzi being in the deal is not surprising.

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
I would rather get Myers as well, but it is not a lopsided deal.

Shields has started at least 31 games since 2007. In four of those years, he has been at least a pretty good pitchers (with 2011 being that he was absolutely terrific). He was mediocre in 2009 and bad in 2010, but I think the Royals are getting a very consistent starter who should give them similar numbers as in 2012.

He started ringing up K's in 2011 and that habit persisted last year even though he did not have a repeat of his godly season. Also, he had a dramatic spike in groundouts/flyouts last year. All these stats were in the AL East, but the Trop definitely seems to favor pitchers.

I guess the Royals just really wanted pitching, so they got their "ace" (high-end #2 IMO) and back of the rotation guy in Wade Davis. I still do not understand the want to move Myers and they probably could have better, but I do not think it is straight highway robbery.

The Reds paid a similar price to this for Latos.
