    Rays avoid arbitration award on David Price

    Signed to a 1 year deal, no $$$/terms disclosed yet

    Matter of time till he's unaffordable, but it would be great to see if he can win another Cy Young

    It's a one year deal for about $10 million.

    He was gonna get at least $9.5-10M in arbitration, but you never know how the arbitrator will rule, if he and his agent asked for $15M. This way the cost is controlled and the team knows now what they have left to spend in free agency.

    What if he didn't want to sign a 3-4 year deal?

    By all reports he wants to stay why are you assuming he doesn't when he has said on multiple occasions he has shouldn't go against the facts when they aren't there to back ya up.

    He's in rare air as so far as having a CYA with two years left of arbitration. He's also a lefty, which adds to his value. A 3-4 year deal buys out his remaining two years of arb but has to be tasty enough for him not to look forward to a huge payday following 2015. It also eats into his 30 year ages and that can be a turnoff if he's not able to reach FA until 32 or so compared to hitting it at 30 years old.

    Everybody says they want to stay. That shows he's a team guy. But money and comfort dictate things. He may hate the Yankees with a passion for example, but if they come over the top with a monster deal and plenty of years, he'd likely move. Pretty much anybody would.

    We already lost a former #1 SP in Shields, and Price will probably be gone within 2 years. Either other guys need to step up, someone emerges from AA and takes the reins, or we trade for a top pitching prospect, or what's kept this team in contention the last few years with limited offensive help will all have been for naught...
