Win-win here.
Agreed.

The Rays got their man, but its the Royals who benefit immediately from this deal.
They get an established top of the line starter along with a solid bullpen/long man/starter in Davis.

The Rays got prospects. And until they are accomplished, they are just propects.
You gotta figure the Rays generally know what they're doing, but its a big risk for them.

One immediate benefit for the Rays is the deal frees up about $14M, allowing them to buy a free agent DH.
