Myers is an MVP-type talent. This could be an Erik bedard-like bungle for Moore, but he has to get to .500 soon.
I am not sure they overpaid. Rumors floating in Boston a few weeks ago was Myers for Lester and most Boston media and fans were against it. The general consensus is you don't trade an established 1/2 starter for a prospect, even one as good as Meyers. Now going into next year Shields may not have been the # 2 guy in Tampa but he would be on most staffs.
