2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do we do with James Shields? Nothing seems really off, but he's giving up a bunch of hits and the Ks have disappeared. Sell while you still can?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I got a ton of James Shields questions here. If you're in a redraft I would almost hang on and hope for value, if you're in a shallow keeper it depends on your situation. If you're in contention I think you sell to augment your roster in weaker areas. If you're out I think you keep and hope.

I'm keeping in deep keepers and dynasty leagues. His value is low right now and it might be better to hope he recoups some value for you in the short term.

In terms of what's wrong with him, It's concerning but I do think he comes back down the stretch. I still believe. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)What is the best way to move older guys (David Wright, Adrian Beltre, James Shields,etc) for younger guys in a dynasty league or is this even relevant to do starting this season?
(hamsterjockey from WI)
If you're at the end of your contention window it's probably time to start selling some old guys to replenish your youth farm. I generally like layering young MLB players and prospects during these trades.

It isn't irrelevant to do this if it's time. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)David Wright, Mike Minor, James Shields, Gregory Polanco for Paul Goldschmidt, George Springer and Dellin Betances. Would you make this move or is it not enough for Goldy?
(Jimbo from LA)
This is bordering on too many moving parts but I think this is fair, unless you suddenly find yourself in need of starting pitchers. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is James Shields back to the James Shields of old? 2 really nice starts in a row. I know 1 was TB, but the other was Det.
(The Dude from Office)
Certainly looks better in these last 2, but it was a 12-start run of nearly 5.00 ERA (100 H in 77 IP, too). I don't think we're clearly out of the woods and back to ace-level, but I'm still holding firm with Shields. (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is going on with James Shields?
(Kyle from Under a bridge)
Lots of questions on Shields in the queue. His balance was greatly improved last season, particularly during the lift-and-stride portion of the pitch sequence, and he has maintained those gains in 2014. He is also throwing harder than last season by almost a full tick, so his relative struggles gain some intrigue. His transition from spine hyperextension to flexion looks more intense this season, with a "violent" head-butting movement near release point (like Max Scherzer), and that could be interfering with his ability to repeat the release point. The biggest functional issue that I have seen is that he is not burying pitches as well as he did last year, with a tendency to elevate, and he is dealing with the power spike that often accompanies elevated offerings. He could improve quickly, or the issue could linger, so it will be interesting to see how the cerebral Shields addresses the problem.

2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)It would be a colossal waste of time for the Rays to demand Polanco from the Pirates. What's a more realistic trade scenario involving Price? Joc Pederson plus a low-level pitcher? Piscotty & Marco Gonzalez? Thanks.
(R.J. from Palo Alto)
Of course it would would be a waste of time for the Pirates. They wouldn't make that deal.

I don't think either of those are good enough offers for someone like David Price. You have to realize that he's not a one-year rental. James Shields netted Wil Myers PLUS. David Price is better than James Shields. Whatever the Rays get in return for Price, it's going to be a haul. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)What jerseys are the following players wearing on August 1st- David Price, James Shields, Jeff Samardzija?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
...is a question I would like to know the answer to!

I'm going to guess Price and Shields don't get traded. The Rays will ask for a ton a ton a ton and the Royals won't want to give up on their season. Samardzija will get dealt and I'll say to the Orioles. Or maybe the Blue Jays. Or maybe the Brewers. Or the Giants. Or the (Matthew Kory)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Astros fire Porter?
(Bill from Wichita)
Nah. Porter is not the first manager to yell at an opponent, nor the first to get involved in a beanball war. He won't be the last, either.

In 2008 Joe Maddon got into a yelling match with Coco Crisp. The argument started because Crisp slid too hard into second base, which he did in response to Jason Bartlett blocking the bag with his leg. (Bartlett was and remains the master of that move.) Sure enough, James Shields hit two Red Sox in the first inning of the next game, including Crisp, who then charged the mound. So even the calmest, smartest of managers can get into hairy situations.

I wouldn't have fired Maddon then and I wouldn't fire Porter now. (That's not to say I support plunking or headhunting or anything like that; I can understand if you want managers held accountable for this stuff.)

Anyway, Think about it from Porter's POV. He's had to watch his team get stomped for the past year-plus, and he doesn't have someone like Shields, who won't let his team get disrespected without retribution. We can debate whether that stuff matters, but neither of us are part of the culture. Those who are seem to think it matters, and probably will until someone gets hurt/plunkings get banned. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any pitchers that come to mind who may not have great stuff but have excellent mechanics? Any you think could be in for a breakout season?
(nubber from tx)
Phil Hughes, James Shields, and Ian Kennedy come to mind. They all have legit stuff, but mechanics allow their stuff to play up a notch. I might focus on mechanics in my analysis, but at the end of the day raw stuff triumphs over mechanics. Mechanics determine how well that stuff plays. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can I win with Kershaw leading my pitching along with the likes of Y.Ventura, T.Walker, A.Bradley, one other proven starter & a few relievers mixed in? Or too much youth?
(Mitch from AZ)
Kershaw covers up a lot of blemishes, but I think you need to add a No. 3 starter type who you know will be productive, a la James Shields or something. The odds of Ventura, Walker and Bradley all producing like you want them to in 2014 aren't good. (Ben Carsley)
2013-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given the silly quirk in Lackey's contract that has him making the league minimum in 2015, doesn't he have rather enormous trade value coming off this season?
(Joshua from Toronto)
I think you could make the case he's as valuable in trade as James Shields was last year, which isn't the same as saying he could bring back as much as James Shields did last year. (Sam Miller)
2013-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is most likely move the Rays make with respect to David Price? And what do you see as a fair (and realistic) return for him in trade?
(One Flap Down from Leonardsville)
Lots of Price questions today.

I would guess a trade is the most likely move, with the return following the template used in the Matt Garza and James Shields trades. Obviously Price costs more money than either of those guys did, but he's also the best pitcher of the three. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much will the KC defence impact James Shields? Is it all that bad?
(mmcd from ottawa)
No, Shields is a high strikeout pitcher. I don't think the impact will be all that much. (Zachary Levine)
2012-11-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Dan, thanks for the chat. If you are Dayton Moore, do you even begin to think about trading a guy like Wil Myers for Jon Lester or James Shields?
(Chris from AZ)
You have to always consider a deal for an established, high-end starting pitcher, especially when your side is moving an unproven minor leaguer. That doesn't mean that you have to do it. Myers' value will never be higher than it is right now. Those two starters you mentioned might not even be available, so don't get too excited. It all comes down to what your other options are, and how much they will cost in terms of players, money, and commitment. The Royals are on the brink of some really good things, and that fan base is so damn ready for a winning product. Dayton Moore has a good feel for the game, and learned from one of the greatest GM's ever in John Schuerholz. (Dan Evans)
2012-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see James Shields pitching in 2013?
(baseballjunkie from cali)
Hello again, baseballjunkie. The Angels and Twins seem like possible trade partners, now that the Dodgers have seemingly moved on, but I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see the Rays hang on to Shields for the first half of the season, before reevaluating their situation. There were some rumblings last week that Jeremy Hellickson was the hotter commodity on the trade market, though I'm sure the Rays will be more averse to moving him given the difference in service time. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hopefully now that the Padres Pitching Plague is behind them, I feel a solid starter is a pressing need for the Padres. When Luebke returns back from the dead we should have Volquez, Luebke, Stultz, Richard, [body]. Whom do you think the Padres should throw in there? Personally, and I know this is a pipe dream, but I'm liking James Shields.
(Brandon from San Diego)
Hi Brandon, thanks for the question. I like Shields, too, but we're gonna need a bigger pipe. The tricky thing with the fences moving is that they can't just go get some random Kevin Correia type and hope it works. Clayton Richard led the NL in homers allowed last year despite calling Petco Park home. Some of the guys I mentioned above as being candidates for the Cardinals might be good fits in San Diego as well. Edwin Jackson wouldn't be a bad idea, but do the Padres have what it takes to sign him? I don't know. (Geoff Young)
2012-10-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hello, old friend! James Shields, Jeff Niemann, Alex Torres, Cesar Ramos, Alex Cobb, Wade Davis or Chris Archer all likely not going to remain with the team past Winter Meetings, let alone Spring Training. How do the Rays better their roster, knowing there's a huge logjam of pitching and there's room for improvement offensively. James Shields kicked it up a notch after the deadline, but can the Rays withstand another horrible 1st half from him again?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I don’t think Archer is going anywhere. Part of his problem was philosophical—he pitched off his slider more than he should. He seemed to solve those after getting a taste in the big leagues and realizing his fastball plays against the big boys. Otherwise, he doesn’t fit the profile of someone they’d part with at this juncture in his career.

I do see Tampa Bay trading pitching. If you want a name I’d say Nick Hundley. San Diego has enough catching, in the majors and in the minors, to move him for value. He’d fit nicely on Tampa Bay’s roster. I don’t have a good feel for what the market at first base or DH will be like (if they don’t bring back Luke Scott). Logan Morrison’s name might pop up if Miami is tired of him. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-07-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Random Rays game from last two months: 2nd inning -- Opponent 2, Rays zip... Aside from that, what is your diagnosis of James Shields? The color guys seem to say that his mechanics are different this year, falling off the mound to the first-base side as he completes his motion, and that his "stuff" isn't as sharp as it used to be. He also looks a bit stockier than last year, but I don't know if that means anything.
(Charles from NYC)
I wrote about this a bit on Tuesday. The replacement level defense behind him has been atrocious, particularly on the left side of the infield. Shields went from a 60% groundball guy to a 45% guy since Longoria has left as he appears to be falling back into habits of strikeouts and flyballs because he doesn't trust the guys on the infield behind him. With Zobrist in the OF most games with Joyce out, the IF tends to be Conrad/Keppinger, Johnson, and Rodriguez/Rhymes and Rodriguez is the only defender in that bunch that grades out as even average. I'm currently trying to deal a $16 Scherzer in a 15 team mixed league for a $12 Shields to a guy that needs the K's (Jason Collette)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)For Fantasy baseball 5x5 Roto: I have had a horrible time with WHIP/ERA. I am thinking I would rank starters this year by 3 year average 150+ K's and eliminate ERA's above 4. Is this a good plan?
(karysingh from Key Largo)
When it comes to SP's I'm always more concerned about protecting ERA/WHIP than anything else, but having a great bullpen helps offset that somewhat. But, don't eliminate pitchers at any ERA level without looking at the underlying indicators, because as discussed earlier WRT Morrow and Nolasco, a high ERA can sometimes mask better skills than the raw numbers would indicate. Don't forget James Shields and Trevor Cahill in 2010... (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)SP keepers! The stats are the usual stats (ERA, K, WHIP, wins, etc.) The guys are: James Shields, Josh Beckett, CJ Wilson, Ervin Santana. Do I have them in the right order? (Might keep 2, but probably only 1 while hoarding young 2Bs like Jemile Weeks & Dustin Ackley.) Thanks!
(David R. from Somewhere, USA)
Yes, you do have them in the right order, though I think there's a drop-off from Beckett to Wilson and that Beckett is a bit underrated this year. (Derek Carty)
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just to clarify, my "Maloney - is that big?" comment was meant in jest. As a Reds fan, I like Maloney and his chances to stick at the back of the rotation in a park that doesn't punish fly balls. But to the follow-up comment, do you see the Reds acquiring a true front of the rotation type this offseason? James Shields seems the most likely candidate.
(RMR from Chicago)
I knew it was ironic. So was the first part of my reply--couldn't you see me wiggling my eyebrows? I like Maloney's command, if nothing else... I would hate to see the Rays part with Shields over arbitration, just because it would tear the heart out of that franchise, to the extent it has a heart. I also wonder about the workload on Shields the last couple of years. (Steven Goldman)
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)If there was such a thing as a Movie Fantasy League, do you believe there is any upside left in Olvia Wilde? Tron, Cowboy & Aliens, and The Change Up all under-performed despite all the press about how pretty Olivia Wilde is.
(Bill from Boston)
Olivia Wilde is like James Shields today, beautiful but gets no support from her teammates. Stick with her, she'll bust out. (Jason Collette)
2011-07-21 16:00:00 (link to chat)James Shields for Mesoraco/Alonso. Make sense for both sides?
(Todd from Austin)
It fits the Rays' needs quite well. Throw in Heisey and I would sign off on it. (Jason Collette)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)James Shields greatly upped his K rate last year but gave up a boatload of HRs. Can he get his ERA down around 4.00 or less?
(dantroy from Davis)
Oh yeah. Big Game is a good pitcher. He struggled with some control last year and left way too many phat pitches over the plate, but his true talent is definitely better than a 4.80+ ERA. I don't know if he is a concrete #1 pitcher, but I see no reason why he can't cut back on dingers even if it comes at the expense of punchouts. I think a 4.00 ERA is pretty realistic. (Eric Seidman)
2010-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)How feasible would a James Shields for Lucas Duda and Kirk Nuewenhuis trade be for the Mets and Rays? With Johan out, the Mets could use a guy like Shields and there's plenty of reason to believe Duda can be most of what Carlos Pena is/was.
(Matt from Whippleville, NY)
I have no idea. (Colin Wyers)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Exactly what do you think of James Shields and Wade Davis? Both started off well enough, the past month has been rough.
(OTSgamer from Dallas, TX)
Was never really high on Davis but I still think Shields is one of the most valuable SPs in the game, especially with that contract. I don't see him as a true #1 pitcher in the traditional sense of like a 2.80 ERA or anything, but as more of a 3.50-3.70 guy with 220 IP and a good K/BB ratio. Let's give Davis some more time though. It's really tough to gauge a player after only a month or two. (Eric Seidman)
2010-03-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rays best starter in 2011 is named...
(Pat from Jersey)
James Shields, until further notice. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, what do you expect from James Shields this year? A return to his 2008 form or numbers more like he put up in 2009?
(Matt from DC)
There wasn't that much of a difference between the two seasons--his ERA was a bit lucky in 2008, and unlucky in 2009. Something in between wouldn't surprise me in 2010. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given your fandom, do you find you end up with more or less Red Sox on your fantasy teams each year?
(Hammer from Pumps & A Bump)
I don't think I draft very many Red Sox players at all. Padres, either. I feel like I'm double-rooting for them, and that's just too much pressure.

I find it easier to root for James Shields to throw eight scoreless against Boston and have Tampa Bay's bullpen blow it in the ninth than it is to count on Dustin Pedroia to win it for two teams. (Marc Normandin)
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)James Shields recently said he was a little tired. In his last 4 starts his era is 4.4. Should the Rays be worried about their pitchers "hitting the wall" down the stretch?
(Tommy from OPS,FL)
Concerned? Yes. Worried? No. I had this thought yesterday about how to bring David Price up. Why not give him one start as a bit of a chest-thumper and to quietly and easily buy everyone in the rotation an extra day's rest? Maybe we can bring this up on Friday. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Do you like James Shields mechanics?
(Jonny from Tampa, FL)
Yes. See you next month, Jonny! (Will Carroll)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that the Rays train has slowed down a bit and there's some "regressioning to the mean," do you think that the Rays have some staying power in their climb towards .500-dom and beyond?
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
At 45 games into the year, it's still early. To some extent I think we have to take the Rays seriously, though the players who should be driving the offense really haven't produced much thus far (Pena, Crawford and Longoria are all below .265 EqAs). The pitching is showing some real improvement; high walk rate and all, Edwin Jackson is putting it together and has been very tough to hit, James Shields has been nasty, and both Scott Kazmir and Matt Garza are coming around. They can thank a much improved defense; the team is 2nd int he league in Defensive Efficiency at .716. I'm a bit skeptical it can stay that high, but it's nowhere near the nightmare that it was last year. So I expect them to stick around at .500 or above. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Troy Tulowitzki. Is he going to turn it around? If I can get him for James Shields, should I? My current SS is Khalil Greene and it's a 16 team league.
(ted from cannot reveal my location)
No! James Shields is the man. Seriously. Isn't Ryan Theriot available? That's who I picked up to stop the Khalil pain. I like Tulo plenty, but he didn't hit on the road last year, and if he doesn't this year then you have someone useful for 81 games, some of which he's already tanked in. (Marc Normandin)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Follow up on James Shields: I also drafted Kazmir, and I picked up Garza after he was dropped around the time he went on the DL. Should I pick up Sonnanstine? To rephrase the question --- could I have a winning team with 4/5 of the Rays' rotation?
(ted from still in the bunker)
Three is my limit, especially if it's head-to-head, where an extended slump can force you to lose consecutive weeks. You already have the three best ones. (Marc Normandin)
2008-02-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)What did you think of the Rays signing Shields to a long term deal this early in his major league life?
(Jules from TheStatpack)
What's not to like? Four years of James Shields for the price of one year of Carlos Silva?

In this market, even if Shields is hit by a bus, run over by a train, becomes a contestant on "I Love New York", and finishes the day in a car accident with Julio Machado, it's still better than going all Russ Ortiz on Silva. (Gary Huckabay)
2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for your great work. Your interview with Brian Bannister was one of the best things I read all year last year. Just wanted to ask you your opinion on two players: James Shields and Nick Swisher. What do you see in their futures and who do you think is the more valuable player?
(Dennis from LA)
Thanks, Dennis. Bannister makes any interviewer look good.

I recently had someone opine to me concern about Shields' mechanics, specifically that they haven't been consistent over the course of his career. Granted, that's not my opinion -- I'm only passing along what I heard -- but if true it poses a question.

Swisher can hit. Given a choice of the two, I'd take Swisher. (David Laurila)
2008-01-22 19:00:00 (link to chat)When did Jamie Shields become James Shields? Do you think that he's going to be known as Jim or Jimmy Shields anytime soon?
(jlarsen from Chicagoland, IL)
I think he should use a different variant of James every season for the rest of his career:

2007: Jamie
2008: James
2009: Jimi
2010: Jaime
2011: Shamus
2012: Jimbo
2013: Xaume
2014: Hemi (That's Maori)
2015: Jim
2016: Jimmie (Jim Baker)
