DH Laroche
RF Zobrist
LF Joyce
1B Loney
2B Roberts/Rodruiguez
C Molina

That's assuming Myers spends a couple of months in AAA fixing any holes in his swing.

That line up with Price-Hellickson-Moore-Niemann-Cobb and a good bullpen is a pretty well rounded team. While starting pitching is lighter, Moore's continued development along with Hellickson's potential development(he's been wayyyy too lucky) might reduce the pain of losing Shields somewhat. That lineup still competes for the AL East crown though.
Doubt the Rays will go after a Laroche now that they have Loney.

And the way the Rays do things, Myers will not be on the main squad when they break camp next spring.
