    Would you rather be over .500 right now, or under? It does not guarantee anything, but it indicates that MAYBE, it wasn't wrong to try to get better.
    Lighten up Francis....

    It should also be noted that no one they gave up in the trade is outperforming their current starters. Whereas you could argue Shields and Wade Davis have been very good this year.

    so they traded from a position of presumed strength, and got better at the positions they acquired, and are about the same at the positions they gave up? Sounds like excellent work frankly.

    Yup, Cain has been better than Myers. Davis and Shields have been vastly better than anything Tampa is playing from them.

    A lot still to be decided with this trade, but it is evidence that this was the horrific laughing-stock of a deal that has been perpetuated here.
