The trade was stupid to begin with.
Because Shields is only going to be A Royal for 2 years. He'll get big money somewhere else.
Wade Davis sucks.
We give up our 1st/2nd best minor league pitching prospect and one (if not best) Royals hitting prospect in quite some time for a 2 season rental on a team that realistically isn't ready to compete w/ the big sticks of the division over the course of a season.
This team needs power bats to move our dinker hitting offense around the bases. Butler needs protection. That's the most important thing in this lineup and he simply doesn't have it.
