KANSAS CITY ROYALS TRADE FOR SHIELDS IS "BIG"

The Royals have wanted and needed pitching for a while now and finally, they got some.  The Tampa Bay Rays have traded James Shields and Wade Davis to the Royals for top prospect outfielder Wil Myers, Mike Montgomery, Jake Odorizzi and Patrick Leonard.  Read about it more HERE. No one in Kansas City wanted to see Myers go, but you need to give something to get something sometimes.

Hey look, it's baseball and this move is good for baseball, it helps make the Royals competitive.  The Rays will be fine but with everything going on right now in the American League East, you have to wonder if the Rays pitching can handle the powerful Blue Jays and Orioles... maybe even the Red Sox in 2013.

Congrats to the Kansas City Royals... I always liked Shields, he's a competitor.
