If Davis is still struggling in late June or early July, then I'd think about demoting him if I had a better option and we were still in contention. He's too important for us to not keep running him out there. People need to understand what it means to demote him. It means he's just a good reliever who we have for just 2 years, same as Shields, because there's no way we'd pick up his 3 options if he's just a reliever. The Wil Myers trade would then hinge on Shields' ability to get us into the playoffs, we win or lose that trade based solely on that.
