I'd rather we trade SHields than Davis

I'm trading Yhields way before Garza

Shields earns $4.25 mil next season, Garza probably climbs to %5.5 but Yhields is basically a complete POS, so no matter the cost, i’n dunping his ass

i don't care what he makes, he's awful

The Rangers are doing well in post season because they have two top of the roto SP—Garza and Price can be those guys

Yields is a bottom feeder

at what point does 'the future is now' theory take hold?

Shields @ $7 mil is a bargain even for this Salvation Army run franchise Trading Shields might lose whatever fanbase remains

and with that in mind some clown on twitter suggests trading Shields at the deadline

Trading James Shields because of his '12 salary, and yes that's the only reason

this is being discussed, is completely out of the question

If the ownership feels $7mil for a front of the order SP is too much, then get out of MLB and find an Arena Football team to buy

Do not trade James Shields. Any return could not be enough for

what you’re giving up, that is a top of the rotation SP at a very affordable price through 2013

We just drafted 12 players in the top two rounds of the draft, and our farm is rated very high. Unless Shields brings the top three prospects from a team’s Top 10 list which also rank high on BA, forget it

To those who suggest trading James Shields, and especially those

trading him for prospects

The Rockies were able to get the Indians top 3 pitching prospects for Baldy Jimenez when arguably he was not at the top of his game. Point is Shields IS at the top of his game so now is not the time to deal him for top prospects. In a year or two if his game is fallen off a bit, he’ll still be able to bring in the top talent of another club, ala the Jimenez deal

Yep. I dump Shields, Pena, Peralta, Farnsworth, Keppinger, Upton

get some bats that at least are AAA proven, ready to conytibute, because next year the rotation is going to be good, and Rodney and McGee are good back end relievers
