Before Shields even with Will Myers I wouldn't have been able to say that. However, I still can't shake the feeling that this is the Royals and everything we touch goes bad for us.
Yep, I'm definitely in the acceptance phase of that deal. I'm just miffed that we have NO ONE worth a shit to play RF, unless Dyson enters the everyday lineup in CF and pushes Cain to RF.
