If the deal was Gordon or Butler for Shields, we'd react negatively because we lose offense to gain pitching and wind up where we were at, which is the same here because Frenchy sucks and Myers is supposed to be the unblocked upgrade.
Exactly. That's why Glass should soften that ceiling a helluva lot more. We can BUY good pitching, keep Myers for RF, and be a BETTER team than if we traded him.
