james shields is a good player. he's certainly not one of the best pitchers in baseball.

moore has a really, really bad habit of trading guys away and not getting their full value.

without looking it up, who did he get for zack greinke?
He got Alcides Escobar, Jake Odorizzi (in this trade, ironically enough), Jeremy Jeffress, and Lorenzo Cain in the Greinke trade. All were pretty big prospects. Jeffress more or less fizzled and is a reliever with the Jays now, but the other 3 still have opportunities of making a significant impact on a team.
