If they extent Shields, it's possible the deal will be worth it for the Royals. If they only get 2 years of him in Kansas City, OTOH...

Now going into next year Shields may not have been the # 2 guy in Tampa but he would be on most staffs.
It's not just Myers (BA's minor league player of the year the season after Mike Trout won it), though, it's also two very good pitching prospects in Odorizzi and Montgomery.
