Not only that, but Dutton thinks it "probably would require more than Myers" to get Shields. It's clear that the Royals are dead set on adding a frontline starter, but they would be going overboard here. Dealing arguably the best hitting prospect in the game for two years of a very good but not elite starter wouldn't make much sense for any team, much less one that might not even contend in 2013.
This is, clearly, a dumbass move.
Either Dutton is a dumbass with no good sources, or DM is.
