  • David will "Price" himself out of Tampa Bay eventually

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/can-tam...024843417.html

    and good for him. We would all do the same thing if we were in his position. He is 27, he is a left handed SP, he just won the Cy Young...he could name his price to any of the big boys and get it and then some. He's also got a good head on his shoulders, and knows what is going on with the Rays. He's seen guys leave because we couldn't afford them anymore.

    Hopefully, he can lead us to a World Series win before the front office deems it's time to strike while the iron is hot, and they move him to whatever Brinks truck of prospects backs up to the Trop first...

    Don't know if i agree with this....... If the Rays are willing to throw a 140 mill at longo i am sure they would be willing to spend more on Price i mean if they are really committed to the team.

      Thing is the Rays seem far more capable if developing pitchers than hitters. Also pitchers are riskier than hitters.

      Plus price seems far less likely to take a huge hometown discount. Worth trying though.

        Can always offer him a contract all he can say is no and move on from there.

          I think Longoria took the deal offered because with his injury history, he wanted the security of being paid decently should his fragility continue. Tough to compare contracts for a guy that should be on the field 5 out of 7 days to a pitcher who at most makes 2 starts a week. I can't see the Rays tying up 35% or more of their annual payroll on 2 guys. I think we are getting the best years out of Price now, just like we did with Crawford and Shields before moving them. Oh, they will offer Price a contract, it might be the union who tells him don't accept it or take a big hometown discount...Price is already alluding to that scenario in the article. He wants to get paid for him and his great grandchildren's longterm future, and also for all the guys in the future looking to score top dollar on their deals.

            Things are starting to heat up in the media about Price being traded before/during the upcoming winter meetings. Where there's smoke, there's fire. Seattle may have the players necessary to get a deal done. Would be sorry to see him go, but that's the way it is here in Tampa Bay.

              It looks like Erik Bedard 2.0. Been there, done that. I honestly wouldn't trade 6 years of Walker, plus whatever combo of Miller, Franklin and Ackley, who would also be included, for 2 seasons of Price. I wouldn't trade Walker for Price straight up.

                Well, Phantom Dreamer, now that you have signed Cano, it certainly makes Franklin or Brad Miller more available in a deal for Price.

                And no, Walker for Price straight up, will not get it done. Friedman rarely loses a trade.

                  Mets are also interested.

                    I hadn't heard that one. Harvey is probably out for 2014, and I doubt they would deal Wheeler or Syndegaard. Mets are in rebuilding mode, I think Price is going to a team that thinks he's the missing piece to win it all next year.

                      It's looking more and more like Price will be with the Rays to start the season. If we are out of it in July, they may consider dealing him or he may just end up like Crawford and Upton and stay to the end of the deal.

                        Well, whaddaya know...new deal reached with David Price avoiding arbitration, 1 year, $14M. Well, at least teams now know what his salary is if they still want to trade for him...

                          Looks like Price is going to enter the season at the head of Tampa's rotation. On one hand, i'm suprised given the front office's history (successful one at that) in trading pitchers with this type of contractual situation, but on the other hand i'm not - the Rays have a good team and losing Price would seriously hurt their chances of making the playoffs in 2014. Sounds like the gam plan is now to give it a go and if it goes bad, he gets traded mid-season. If it doesnt go bad - then they lose him to FA and get the draft pick.

                            I may be wrong but I think he still has one more year of arbitration eligibility. But the Rays leverage goes down the longer they keep him, as far as getting a fair market value in return. When teams know they can wait the Rays out, they may want to hold onto their prospects and take their chances in free agency instead.

                              He has one more year. Pretty sure. They lose leverage but get a great pitcher to lead a title run. If they drop out of it, they can deal him this summer. If they win, they can deal him in the winter or maybe even sign him to an extension.
