The Tampa Bay Rays and Kansas City Royals just made a blockbuster trade. James Shields and Wade Davis are hitting the mid-west, while Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi are moving to Tampa. A full breakdown of this massive deal is right here.
The Rays laid out a lot of money (for them, at least) to sign Evan Longoria and keep him in baby blue for the next ten years. With Longoria already on one of the most team-friendly deals in MLB history, should the Rays have made this new commitment?
The Miami Marlins have traded away most of their best players, defrauded the citizens of Miami-Dade County out of millions of dollars, and alienated almost all of the team's fans. Is there anything defensible about this deal?
