Playing A Little Pepper

Will James Shields still be with the Rays after the trade deadline?

There is a good chance Shields won’t be with the Rays in 2013 considering he would cost $9 million in 2013 and Alex Cobb can offer 85% of the talent at 5% of the cost. But while the Rays will listen to offers this month, but they also know that the best offers will likely come in the off-season when more teams will be in on the bidding…YES


  1. Will Rhymes, 2B
  2. Carlos Pena, 1B
  3. Ben Zobrist, RF
  4. BJ Upton, CF
  5. Luke Scott, DH
  6. Jeff Keppinger, 3B
  7. Flash Jennings, LF
  8. Jose Molina, C
  9. Elliot Johnson, SS
  10. Alex Cobb, SP

    If history is any indication, I think they trade him before the year is over, a la Kazmir.

  2. Rob says:

    I called six people tonight and I literally couldn't give away my tickets and parking pass.

  3. Rob says:

    By the way, Ruggiano had another double tonight. He has 12 for the year, which is more than every player on our team except Zobrist, and he only has 91 ABs. He is hitting .385 now.

  4. Rob says:

    So, if 87 is the magic number to make the playoffs with the second wildcard this year, the Rays have to go 41-29 the rest of the way, a .597 winning percentage. I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen, so they need to make moves to get better in the future.

  5. Joe says:

    I prefer Archer. This trend of brutal starts by Cobb if he rests too many days is just not working for me. No pitcher likes too much time off but the good ones find a way, Cobb is flat out awful.
