Yes! The Rays need two things to stay competitive: youth and offense. This deal brings both and adds depth to the outfield, and the bullpen. Wil Myers could be a legitimate superstar in the waiting!

No. This deal cuts into the Rays' strongest weapon - the pitching staff. James Shields was a guy you could always rely on. Will the prospects pay off? We don't know, but we do know that the team lost a leader on and off the field.
