09:36 PM ET 11.03 | The latest rumor is that the Los Angeles Dodgers have made trading for Rays starting pitcher James Shields their number one priority this offseason. Are the circumstances right for the Rays to trade Shields and do the Dodgers have the pieces to offer the Rays a package that could make the deal actually happen? The Rays major needs right now are at first base, the outfield, catcher, and designated hitter. In a trade for Shields, the Rays would like to fill at least a couple of those needs right now or at least at some point in 2013 while also receiving prospects with the upside to play a big part of their future. The Dodgers might have the personnel in their organization to present the Rays with exactly the type of package they're looking for.

The Jays can dream on if they think they are have a shot at getting Nick Punto. The Dodgers gave up so much to get him.
