re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC

If the young guys in KC hit they have a pitching staff good enough to grab a WC

Is KC a hitters park?

Never mind, Les. Now seeing the 31 update, Dayton went full retard.

My quick take: This is the worst trade in MLB history unless Wade Davis becomes a good starter, in which case it's only the second worst.

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
It's lopsided because the royals aren't a contender. Why trade for a guy on the wrong side of 30? Doesn't make sense.

I know he's been good but this is a move a contender would make. Trade the young guy for a veteran pitcher to make a run. KCs window isn't ready to be open yet.

Only thing I can think of is KC doesn't see Myers hitting like he has at a MLB level....

I agree, this a very stupid trade for KC, unless they know something we don't. They aren't a high power hitting team like Toronto, where a pitcher like Shields would really help. Shields also is not a TORP, so you gave up your best hitting prospect for a #2 pitcher.

This would be a good trade for a team like Texas. It just does not make sense for a team like KC.

This has to be good for Shields though...Pitching against Minny, Cleveland, White Sox seems easier than Yankees, Red Sox, and Toronto IMO

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
The Royals organization thinks they are a contender for whatever reason. Hosmer and Moustakas should definitely take a step forward, but I really do not see them passing Detroit. I was just trying to defend because they are going for it.

Either KC knows something about him that no one else does or they just got trade raped badly.

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
I guess they think they are contenders. Their pitching sucks though even with shields

I'm really Hoping KC knows something nobody else does, or they really did take some steps backwards after building with some pretty good prospects

re: Rays deal Davis and Shields to KC
the rotation still sucks even with this trade. lot of young bats so if they turn to big time guys, then there's a shot at some success.
