The Houston Astros should trade for James Shields

The Houston Astros have already made a splash in the trade market, making a move for left-hander Scott Kazmir, but I still think they are one arm away from being a true World Series contender.

Should the Padres just blow the whole thing up?

No team made more noise this past offseason than the San Diego Padres, engaging in seemingly endless roster turnover in hopes of putting a contending team on the field.
