    Don't we want him to be good so maybe we can flip him?

    Given his contract, age and how bad he's been I can't imagine getting much for him. The higher draft pick for being shitty I think is worth more.

    I agree, don't see Shields as a flip candidate. SOX still owe $24MM on him, would have to eat a lot of that to get anything of value. He'd also have to really turn it around.

    Still don't know what I watched last Tuesday in Surprise. He was making easy work of the Rangers, then completely sucked his next start.

    But you're going to have to eat it anyway if you cut him ala Danks. Might as well hope he's good and get something for him even if it's shit.

    I think Shields will be decent this year. He seemed to settle into a groove after initially blasting mud all over the insides of his trousers last year.

    And that was in July. He then went on to suck in August and September.

    His July numbers actually suggest he was actually very lucky. He had a 1.78 ERA, which on paper looks really good. But he had the lowest K/9 rate of any month in 2016 with 4.1 and a BABIP of .179, which is not sustainable.

    His main issue was he gave up way too many home runs. 31 HRs in 114 IP as a Sox. He also had the highest walk rate with 4.3 per 9 and the lowest K rate with 6.1 among the main 5 Sox starters last season.

    So he doesn't strike out that many batters, gives up too many walks and HRs and is 35 years old.

    I think what you're referring to is sweat equity.

    I was just going to post the exact same thing :laff:

    Probably is the opening day lineup and the lineup we may see tomorrow as well.

    Also Milwaukee is going to let us use a DH but they won't?

    I think that's how the spring training rules work, IIRC. Don't think they'd have a say, it's not an "NL game" despite it being in their park.

    I think that's from the front of a recent tabloid. He's like a real-life :| tag.
