Championship!!!
You'd be without a SS and CFer. You'd also have been missing one of the key components to the Shields trade.

The Royals made out quite well in the Greinke deal. It's never good to give up an ace, but to get a plus SS and CFer out of the deal is a pretty good return. You've replaced a very scarce resource (#1 SP) with 2 very scarce resources (well rounded hitters at defensively premium positions).

That's why the Royals are so dangerous - at 3 of the most important defensive positions on the field - C, SS and CF - you guys have people that can hold their own with the bat.
