The Shields trade can succeed on a few levels/or in a few ways:

-- The Royals make the playoffs in 2013 or 2014

OR

-- James Shields pitches great for two years before leaving as a free agent (and resulting in a high comp pick) and Wade Davis is more successful as a SP than Jake Odorizzi over the next 5 years

It's a failure if Odorizzi is better than Davis and the Royals don't make the playoffs.

It's also a failure if Wil Myers is Ryan Braun, part 2.
