James Shields Interview

James Shields, starting pitcher from the AL Champion Tampa Bay Rays joined the program. Tony asked if he’s ready to get going, and of course he’s ready to improve upon Tampa’s success from last year.

 

James is excited for the team’s main addition, Pat Burrell to the outfielder. He certainly hopes he’ll got hot early and often and drive in a bunch of runs for Tampa.

 

Tony asked if James thinks the AL East is the toughest division in baseball, and he agreed. The Yankees have added a ton of guys as did the Red Sox.

 

The Rays are still a young team, as James is still the team’s oldest starting pitcher at age 27. Tony in particular asked about David Price, and James wasn’t sure if he’d start in the big leagues or in triple-a. Price only has 110 big-league innings under his belt, so he might not be ready to throw 200+ innings in the starting staff.

 

James isn’t worried about the team getting complacent. Joe Maddon isn’t the type of guy to yell and scream, but he’s good at keeping the team loose but also keeping the team focused.

Unless one considers Rocco Baldelli and John Smoltz, two players that the Red Sox will be lucky to get half-seasons from, a lot, the Sox did not add a “ton of guys” this off-season. And the even bigger gaffe is referring to Shields as the youngest pitcher in the starting rotation. In fact, Shields is the oldest…Research is your friend. Try it some time. [Tony Bruno] […]
