    Re: Royals on the verge of acquiring James Shields and Wade Davis from the Rays

    Trotting Shields, Santana, Guthrie, and Davis out there will do a lot more for the Royals than Hochevar, Sanchez, Smith, and Mendoza. Royals scouts think Odorizzi would probably top out as a #3 starter and by the time Shields deal is done, they believe Zimmer, Yordano Ventura, or Lamb can meet and/or exceed where Odorizzi would be.

    They need to do something with right field now.

    Keeping Franceur around until the trade deadline will be fine. The dude struggled big time last year at the plate, but is still one of the best defensive RF's out there. I do think he needs to go if you want to win though.

    Right now the 40 man payroll is around 84 million. Glass wants it to be at $70 million because it's 'the break even point'. A quick look at salaries shows the combination of Frenchy and Hochevar is $9 million...


    Also, the Tigers are not happy with this move.

    If Royals deal is bad, why were the Tigers hoping they wouldn't make it? - CBSSports.com

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is terrible in the OF, a good arm doesn't make up for having 0 range and taking TERRIBLE routes. He is terrible in every aspect of the game.e

    our lineup is better right now if we put Dyson in CF and Cain in RF.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Francoeur's defense was not good last year. He's still got that fancy, schmancy arm, but he seriously had Jose Guillen-esque range last season.

    I'd be okay with this, especially if Frenchy takes Hochevar with him on his way out the door.

    Even Todd Akin thinks the Royals got legitimately raped. Dayton Moore can go DIAF.

    Dyson shouldn't even be on the damn team. He had 1 reason to be on the team last year and sucked at that. I understand Frenchy needs to go, but Dyson is God awful.

    From Shields, via TB Times: "I'm excited to go over there, but this is definitely a sad day for me and my family. I've been here 12 years."


    That's nice.

    Shields is probably happy to get out of Tampa

    James Shields will play in front of a fan base that gives a **** for the first time in his career. #Royals

    Jeff Passan has some good inside info too. Wanted to trade Myers for Shields straight up and they declined.
