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?
At the very least they got escobar, their young starting SS for greinke. Shields might not be an ace, but kc was desperate for talented SPs, Shields was the best they could do and so they did. Are people still downplaying Myers talent now that Tampa acquired him? When he was discussed for Lester he was a strikeout machine and overrated because of the PCL. But Friedman wants him, so he must be good right?
