are you kidding me? what weakness do they have that is more important than pitching? any pitching. we all know they suck horribly at sp. but they also had trouble bridging the gap between the weak starters and their HOF closer. sheilds would be awesome on that team or any other team for that matter.
if i were cashman, and i decided that i was going to deal arod i would fight really really hard to get kotchman, santana, and sheilds....problem is if im bill stoneman...im not dealing sheilds. id possibly give them donnelly, carrasco, or romero. and if im cashman and i could get santana, kotchman and one of those relievers, im pulling the tirgger. cause that would fill all the holes imo, cept for 3b. which they can get in a deal for sheffield somewhere, and dont forget they have eric duncan who can come up
