must be through trade since they just picked up his option
Ethier/pitching prospect for Shileds
Rather impressive, 6 seasons with 31 starts min and 200 + IP. The last 2 being his best...But hey, it's not Justin Verlander, we should not be too excited, he had a 5.18 era 2 or 3 years ago. If the Rays are dumping salary: ok, if they ask for the king's ransom, they can keep him.
I hear they are looking for a catcher and 1st baseman. Let's give them Fed-Ex and Van Slyke.
This has bad idea written all over it, Shields is OK, but not worth what we'll pay for him
I'd trade FedEx in a hot second for Shields
FedEX isn't even a top 5 prospect, let him go in a second
Shields is puzzling. For sure not an ace, but did put up Cy-esque numbers in 2011.
On one hand he plays in a pitcher's park, on the other he plays in the AL bEast.
I think a relocation to the NL West, with all its pitcher's parks, could serve him well.
Yes, this guy will easily throw 200+ innings and then some. The question is whether or not he's as good as advertised.
What IS he actually worth to you?
He's gonna be what 31 next year? Ugh
Shouldn't Greinke be the Dodgers big target? He's an FA I believe. . .
