James Shields and Wade Davis to KC for Wil Myers, Odorizzi, Montgomery & Leonard
 
@TBTimes_Rays Hearing #Rays have traded Shields AND Davis to #Royals.

Gotta involve Myers.

OG Kuch 12-09-2012 09:47 PM

Oh man. Considering they were apparently asking for significantly more than Myers for Shields alone, I wonder what this will bring.

If the Yankees aren't going to get better in the short term, at least the Rays are getting worse.

Still, this news makes me uncomfortable -- a deal between one of the best front offices in baseball and one of the worst has major ripoff potential.

It's OK to create threads for big trades guys!

Can't believe KC traded Myers for 2 years of Shields...total act of desperation.

bad for the royals.

Wow.

Dayton Moore everybody. I'll wait for all the names to come out before I say anything, but until then, Dayton Moore everybody.

Went from rumour to basically confirmed pretty quickly, didn't think it was close enough to a done deal to start a thread.

Feel the same way about the deal itself. Six of Myers>2 from Shields. Kansas City a little nervous for prospects after their recent class disappointed slightly?

Kershaw 12-09-2012 09:58 PM

Royals get fleeced.

TootooTrain 12-09-2012 10:01 PM

If they extend Shields it looks much better. Without that certainty though, it's definitely in the Rays' favour.

ROR 12-09-2012 10:02 PM

Dayton being Dayton. :facepalm:

darko 12-09-2012 10:03 PM

Shields better have an extension coming.

Marc the Habs Fan 12-09-2012 10:03 PM

1. Shields
2. Guthrie
3. Santana
4. Chen
Davis/Mendoza/Hochevar/Odorizzi battling for 5th

Honestly, KC refusing to even give Myers a September call-up last year when he had done really well at AAA was fishy and makes you wonder if they didn't like something about his character/attitude, now they trade him...

Terrible rotation regardless. They should've gone for a younger option than trading a legit player like Myers for really 2 yrs of a pitcher who won't turn around your team.

robert terwilliger 12-09-2012 10:06 PM

his character or attitude shouldn't matter when he's a better player than the current starting right fielder.

No doubt. It was just puzzling to me, there seemed to be something that did not meet the eye in his case. Calling him up for 4 weeks would have had no impact on service time if he's their starting RF in April 2013.

But Francoeur hit 29 hrs in his rookie yr.

robert terwilliger 12-09-2012 10:11 PM

i think the real thing going on is that the royals are a ship without a rudder. i don't think moore knows what he's doing.

he's addressing the issues in the rotation...while dealing from an area he doesn't have much depth. jeff francoeur is not a good player. the royals just chose a 28 year old corner outfielder who put up a .665 ops, in his prime!

Huge #Rays trade is Shields AND Davis (and PTBNL) to #Royals for OF Myers, RHP Odorizzi, LHP Montgomery, 3B Leonard

Odorizzi too. LOL.

And Montgomery was a top prospect too, right?

darko 12-09-2012 10:13 PM

If Royals traded a hitter for pitching help it should've been Butler.

Hosmer, Moustakas, Myers, Gordon and Starling should all be off limits. Moore is an idiot.

BPR* 12-09-2012 10:13 PM

Wouldn't be shocked to see the Rays ink a Longoria/Moore type extension with Myers very early next season. Shields should get an extension too, but I don't think of getting to sign a guy to a market value contract as something Dayton Moore should get credit for in a deal.
