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

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...

REPORT: Sox Expected To Offer Shields 4-5 Yrs.

REPORT: Sox Expected To Offer Shields 4-5 Yrs.

James ShieldsAccording to Andy Martino of The New York Daily News, the Kansas City Royals expect the Red Sox to offer free-agent James Shields a 4-5 year deal—a deal the AL Champs believe they'll be unable to match. While the team will make a "genuine" effort to re-sign Shields, they realize they have little realistic hope of holding on to their ace. Boston—in their view—is the most likely landing spot. It's well known that the right-hander is one of Ben Cherington's primary targets as he tries to re-fill the top two spots of the Boston rotation.

Daily Red Sox Links: David Ortiz, James Shields, Torey Lovullo

Today's links look at David Ortiz's new part-time gig, whether James Shields or Jon Lester is the best candidate for "new Red Sox ace" and what Torey Lovullo might be doing in Minnesota. If David Ortiz is half as good as Pedro has been, his stint as an analyst on FOX for the World Series will be worth watching. (Boston Herald) It's also probably time to start preparing for Big Papi's eventual departure. And that is in no way depressing. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston) In a battle of nicknames, "Big Game James" Shields is head and shoulders above Jon Lester, but what about in terms of...
