Re: Would you...Homer Bailey for Wil Myers?

Bailey is also five years younger than Shields and two years younger than Lester, so it is not unreasonable to expect him to be on an opposite trajectory.
I'd offer Leake and Cingrani and see if the Royals counter by asking for Bailey. Not saying I'd do it, but it would certainly be an interesting conversation.
Good reasoning. And I agree. Bailey is younger and cheaper than both Shields and Lester. And he posted better numbers than Lester while pitching in GABP.
I'd consider it, but not sure I'd do it, Bailey straight up for Myers. Hmmm. I'd rather trade Leake and one of Corcino/Cingrani.
