    Would love to see a left handed power bat in between both Myers and Longoria.

    Even though it would never happen, I think Anthony Rizzo would be the best fit for the Rays. IMO, his numbers would be inflated a bit because of all the pitches he would get to feast on.

    They have an awesome starting rotation.

    Not sure anybody can compete with those arms

    This is a career year for Loney but I don't ultimately see him as the answer or long-term plan at 1B.

    As a Rays fan, I gotta say that I loved the addition of Loney because his glove fits in with the standard of defense the Rays expect and everyone knew this was a make-or-break year for him. He has always been a good contact guy who never really untapped his power. I don't think he ever will untap his power, even though he has shown some little extra pop this year.

    If he does stay in Tampa, it will be at a discount and a contract that would possibly allow the Rays to acquire another 1B/DH in the future. No more Luke Scott please...I know he has been batting well but I just cannot stand that guy.

    It's no coincidence that since Will Myers came up June 18 Tampa is 24-9 and came from 7 games behind to 1/2 games behind the Sox.
    All the talk about Piug for the Dodgers, Wil Myers will have better stats than Puig by years end.

    i didnt really know much about myers til about two weeks ago but its hard to blame the royals for getting shields who has pitched very well but been tough luck on w's and l's

    they have alex gordon who is a .270 career hitter at 29 and eric hosmer who theyre still waiting to see how he pans out...good so far but still far from a star...so they went out and got a known entity this time

    if myers keeps going you could certainly say the royals just have shit luck

    I don't know if you can call it shit luck because he was the top hitting prospect in baseball

    He's been projected as a future MVP candidate. The Royals were well aware of what they had on their hands

    Teams should ask them the rays who they want, and then realize they shouldn't give that guy away; or better yet, if you think you might trade a guy away, see if the rays want them or not

    Myers, who has led an itinerant career in terms of both position and organization, likely will remain the subject of trade speculation leading into next month’s winter meetings. On Tuesday, at least one possible destination came to light. As first reported by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Padres and the Mariners have discussed an exchange that would send Myers north in return for shortstop Jean Segura and right-hander Mike Leake.

    Myers has a ton of talent and is a great athlete but I have seen enough. He doesn't have the mental side down and often times has his head in the clouds and makes a lot of mental errors. I'd be over the moon if the Padres trade him for Segura like some reports are saying.
