    Yup. If, say, they signed Anibal and Gomes instead of Guthrie and Santana, this move would be a lot more justified.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    As much as everyone is saying it's a horrible trade for the Royals, Shields and Davis are helping the Royals NOW. I'm not saying the return, in the end, will be tremendous for TB but the Royals need SP and maybe the FO found that the trade was the best way to strengthen their rotation

    Abide!

    Yeah Shields is a TORP type pitcher with 2 years left on his deal and Davis can be a solid SP given the opportunity in the Royals rotation.

    They want to win now and we don't even know the rest of the pieces yet.

    Well for now KC won it, until the prospects sent to Tampa prove something at the major league level. That being said, all signs point to Myers becoming a dangerous hitter, so he could turn this one in Tampa's favour for sure.

    What does the Rays rotation look like as of right now?

    Damn was hoping the Sox were gonna pull off the trade for Myers. I really think he's gonna be a stud. But definitely not upset to see Shields leave the East lol guy killed us.

    It's nothing to be excited about, but at least the rotation is something to talk about since the Greinke days:

    Shields
    E. Santana
    Hochevar
    Guthrie
    Chen

    With Davis and Duffy being solid additions if necessary

    Not a chance in hell KC parted with both Myers and Starling. It'll be Myers+ Solid pitching spec + two lower level specs IMO. Can be broken down as Myers+low level spec for Shields and Pitching spec+low level spec for Davis.

    I have a feeling Kansas City will be wanting this one back.
