Re: James Shields off the Market
I like Shields' contract status and he would improve the rotation, but he's no ace. He's an average #2 and a great #3. His numbers are nice this year but check the prior seasons. Again, respectable, but not worth gutting the farm system. I'd go Alonso/Volquez/Hamilton and not an inch further. SP is not our problem and we'd possibly be trading away the guy (Alonso) who could immediately be the left handed bat we so desperately need.
