...this like will be for Myers, but even if it is not, it probably takes the Royals out on Dickey.
Ken Rosenthal @Ken_Rosenthal
That should hopefully open up trade talks with Texas.Quote:
Source: #Rays will send James Shields and Wade Davis to #Royals for Wil Myers and other prospects.
Didn't the Royals just barely say last week that Myers and Gordon were not going anywhere? Can't believe any of these gm's when talking about what players they want to trade...
Well this is bad in that we can't get Wil Myers now...but it should make Texas even MORE desperate to acquire Dickey with Shields off the table...I expect we get a very nice package with Olt the center piece.
btw the Royals are stupid...
No, they were willing to move Myers, just not for Dickey and as reported they were interested in Niese, but Niese is not on the same level as Shields. Though they do will give up more than just Myers for those 2.
Honestly I'd want more than Olt in a deal for Dickey
I don't really know much about him but he's 24 and spent a majority of his time in AA last season. While I like the pop, I just don't know how well he can play the outfield
...and Texas does not want to give up more than him. They might still sign Sanchez.
Really wanted wyers, damn. Is olt really worth dickey or does tx need to add pieces
What I find funny today...is that I've read a bunch of headlines quoting a "Report: Rangers offer top prospect Olt for Dickey"; and all they are relying on is a twitter tweet from Andy Martino as their source...Is Andy Martino's twitter account anymore accurate than the stuff we come up with? We're not talking Rubin, or Rosenthal or someone that semi knows...
At this point keep Dickey and try to resign him. Myers was the real piece to go after and now that hes gone its pointless. Olt is not enough for Dickey. I want Dickey to remain a Met.
Rays got Myers, Odorizzi, Montgomery and Leonard. Wow :speechless::speechless::speechless:
