Now that the dust has settled on the trade involving James Shields, Wade Davis and Wil Myers, the baseball world is digesting the significance of the transaction itself.

The Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays completed the deal on Sunday. The Royals received the ace they've been wanting in James Shields, along with right-handed starter/reliever Wade Davis and a player to be named later.

The Rays got the bat they've been seeking, but that bat has yet to produce a single at-bat in the majors.

Top prospect Wil Myers goes to the Rays, along with top pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and Mike Montgomery. Prospect third baseman Patrick Leonard was sent to Tampa Bay as well.

As with any trade, experts and pundits alike will be espousing their views concerning which team made out better in the deal and which team got shafted, so to speak.

There are pros and cons to each facet of the trade on both sides. Here is a look at the winners and losers.
