It's tough. i feel your pitching has some nice guys in there... and your lineup could miss his power. that said, i think shields could command more in a trade for you later if u moved him... OR free you up to move another starter for a better bat than Davis. I like it as a value play, just be sure you have ok options for power.

Personally, I would stick with Davis. I don't think Shields will do very well in Kansas City. I'd rather keep an eye out for any WW breakout SP.

Stick with Davis. Because he is so hot, I would think you can at least get a stud pitcher. Shields aint no slouch, but either sell very high on davis or just keep him.

I agree with the previous post by "gold..." I am not doubting Shields' abilities, but I would try to get more for Davis.

At this point, you could probably get more for Davis. I've always been a Shields fan as a baseball fan, but he's ehhhh some of the time. Hold Davis for now if you can't get anything more. hope that helps

help me?

I gotta agree with the majority here. Chris davis has flat out raked out of the gate this year and could definitely yield you a top tier starter in a 12 teamer. I also really like your staff so I would either get top value for davis or just stay put for the time being. Your lineup would miss the power more than your rotation needs another arm.

thanks for mine. echoing others, i'd stand pat. i don;t think your OF is THAT deep, and you'd miss nis power #'s for sure. or try to package davis and another SP for an even better SP than shields.
