FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: RAYS ACQUIRE SUPER HITTING PROSPECT WIL MYERS FROM KANSAS CITY FOR SP JAMES SHIELDS

The Tampa Bay Rays completed a blockbuster trade late Sunday night in acquiring super hitting prospect Wil Myers from the Kansas City Royals for a package highlighted by SP James Shields.  Altogether the Royals get Shields, along with SP Wade Davis for Myers and minor league pitchers Jake Odorizzi and Mike Montgomery. 

Analysis:  This is why the Rays are quite possibly the best run organization in baseball.  They unload a very good pitcher in Shields, who was a guy they were not going to commit to long-term, for the best hitting prospect in the game today in Myers.  This could go down as a colossal steal for the Rays as Myers has big time upside which is highlighted by many predicting he will be a 40 home run guy.  Stunning.  As far as Shields is concerned, his fantasy baseball stock gets a decent boost in getting out of the AL East, where he was already a near-ace pitcher, to the much weaker AL Central.
