Analysis: He'd still like the ball over Tyson Ross, though. The competitive streak in the 34-year-old right-hander doesn't allow for anything else. "I've been in this situation before," Shields said. "I think in 2011, David Price (in Tampa Bay) took my opening-day start after three years. And I got it right back the next year."
