Any Tampa Bay Rays fans who might continue to miss James Shields can now buy his Clearwater, Fla. house, at one hell of a deal. 

Busted Coverage spotted one famous abode, at least famous as far as starter homes are concerned. The website happened upon a report over at WTSP, a station that recently had one of its reporters walk the semi-deserted grounds of Case de Shields. 

For more, we head over to, which has a breakdown of a house that features a man cave as well as a nifty pool. 

...4 Bedrooms, 4 baths, office, media room/man cave and 4,581 sqft of living space located in the prestigious Renaissance Oaks gated community. Gorgeous detail throughout, featuring a gourmet kitchen with Monogram appliances and beautiful cabinetry. This split plan offers a master suite that will not disappoint, equipped with his and hers closets and a master bath with a doub le vanity, jetted tub, and temperature controlled glass shower. The man cave boasts a custom 80 inch projection screen with comfy seating built in for 4. Plenty of room for a pool table and includes a kitchen area with refrigerator. The outdoor living area is perfect for cookouts with the outdoor kitchen or go for a swim in the salt water pool! This home is currently owned by former Tampa Bay Rays player James Shields and is convenient to Tampa, St Pete, beaches, and great restaurants and shopping.

Not quite sure why Busted Coverage considers this a beginner home, because I could kick my feet up in this house from now until the end of days. 

I guess when you consider the kind of homes most sports stars boast, this would be on the humble side. I mean, only four bedrooms? Nick Saban is selling off a house with six. Step up your game, Shields. 

The former Rays pitcher left this particular home for greener pastures out west. For the Royals, Shields has provided two wins on a 2.52 ERA in the early goings. 

Sadly, I have no idea if his current house has a man cave boasting an 80-inch screen, because it's really the only way to watch Baseball Tonight properly.
