Shields is borderline. But overselling it as some great trade where we grabbed some top 10 pitcher is disingenuous. (as the prison fella is doing)
I am actually cooling off about the trade as a whole. The thing is, if we don't win this year, these young players may just give up hope of ever being a winner in KC. You could already see the seams of the clubhouse getting ready to burst at the end of last year. I specifically remember frenchy getting thrown out at second like a dumbass and Hosmer/Moose just ripping him a new asshole.
