I know it's early but he could turn out to be the real deal and will probably be along with Longoria the face of the Rays franchise for years to come.
I know the Royals needed pitching and got Shields but how they let this kid get away is beyond me.
The Royals probably were looking at the regression of Hosmer and Moustakas and thought that they needed pitching...which they did. I'm not saying I agree with the trade, but I can see why they did it. Getting Shields and Davis gives them 2/5 of a rotation and acquiring Santana even more. Dayton Moore had to make a bold move in order to save his job too.
