Granted, Zach Stewart was no Wil Myers, but James Shields >> Scott Rolen.
Yep. That's my thinking too.
I'd rather my club try to do something to compete (especially after many years of not trying).
Maybe Myers becomes the next GStanton. Maybe he becomes the next Delmon Young (or worse). Who knows?
I'm not saying all of KC's recent moves are good, but it's hard for me to call this move stupid.
Worse case, it doesn't work out.. then the Royals are no worse off than they've been in previous years..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
