Royals’ James Shields would be great fit in Cubs’ rotation

SAN FRANCISCO — When Kansas City Royals ace James Shields walked off the mound at the end of a scoreless sixth inning Sunday night at AT&T Park, after his final start of the year, he looked more like Big Game James than he ever has. Not just because of the strong performance in Sunday’s pivotal Game 5 start against the San ­Francisco Giants. Mostly because now the Big Hunt is about to start for free-agent pitching, and nobody’s hungrier for the kind of...

Turnover in Tampa Bay: Maddon opts out of Rays contract

Because of their business model, the Rays have always been a team of adjustments. They traded James Shields, let B.J. Upton walk as a free agent, burned through any number of closers, and kept trying new players at new positions until they found ways to make it work. But after six straight winning seasons in […] The post Turnover in Tampa Bay: Maddon opts out of Rays contract appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Red Sox podcast: James Shields might not be a perfect fit in Boston

Maybe it's bad luck or a small sample size. Or maybe there's something keeping Shields from being great in the postseason.

Is James Shields still worth $100 million to the Red Sox after his playoff implosion?

Is James Shields still worth $100 million to the Red Sox after his playoff implosion?

James Shields was a mess in Game 1 of the World Series, and his postseason track record is not strong. Should the Red Sox care? James Shields has been one of baseball's best pitchers since 2011, when his career went from good to great following some adjustments to ensure that 2010 never happened again. He'll be a free agent for the first time this winter, and is set to sign a deal that will likely fall in the $100 million range as the third of three aces on the market. It might even end up being with the Red Sox, who need to plug some massive holes in their rotation and are already...

Is Shields Taking Himself Out Of Sox Picture?

Is Shields Taking Himself Out Of Sox Picture?

(USAToday Sports)"Big Game" James Shields has been anything but this postseason. He has hurled a total of 19.0 innings over four starts—and posted a very unlucky ERA of 7.11. He's also given up four HRs over that span—including last night's first inning, two-run shot to Hunter Pence. Overall this postseason, batters are hitting .337 against him. So, does this mean Ben Cherington and the Yawkey Way 'brain trust' are re-assessing their reported desire to give Shields a four- or five-year contract? One would hope so! After all, some guy named Jon Lester is younger than Shields and wants to...

Game 1: Giants lead 7-0; Bumgarner’s epic scoreless streak

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Kauffman Stadium Greetings again from KC, where the Giants added on two more runs in the fourth inning, chasing James Shields and calling into question Shields’ anticipated Game 5 start. After Michael Morse’s RBI single off Shields, Danny Duffy took over and he issued two walks, one with the bases loaded. The Giants just scored twice off Duffy in the seventh, with Joe Panik sneaking an RBI triple past Nori Aoki (who misplayed the ball) and Pablo Sandoval greeting reliever Tim Collins with a base hit to left with the infield in, sending in...

James Shields is too expensive for the Royals, but can the Tigers afford him?

James Shields is starting Game 1 of the World Series tonight. Would he be able to repeat that feat in Detroit next year? With "Big Game James" Shields ready to start the biggest game of his life this evening, it only seems right to examine where Shields will be after the 2014 season comes to a close. Max Scherzer's departure looks like a foregone conclusion, but if the Tigers were to look for a free agent starter to fill the void, Shields could be the most reasonably priced big name on the...
