Go Get James Shields, And Call It A Rotation

Go Get James Shields, And Call It A Rotation

(Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports)It's difficult to understand why there's so much resistance in Red Sox Nation to the possible signing of James Shields. Maybe it's because he was such a bitter AL East foe for so long. And yet, it seems like Shields is the most realistic option left for a top-of-the-rotation starter. In the first place, he won't cost the team any prospects—just John Henry's cash. Second, he has a rich history in the division. Third, he has hurled 200-plus innings for eight straight years.

Sox not in deep on Hamels, Shields yet

SAN DIEGO -- A brief update on where the Red Sox stand as of Wednesday night: • The Sox have yet to have meaningful discussions with the Phillies on left-hander Cole Hamels. They also have yet to engage in a significant way with free agent right-hander James Shields. • The Sox have not ruled out being in play for free agent right-hander Max Scherzer. They want to see how the market develops for the right-hander. If it goes to the eight-year, $200 million level that has been reported, of course, the Sox don’t figure to be involved for long.
