The Tampa Bay Rays know they are going to lose David Price before the trade deadline passes. Teams are lining up, trying to gather intel, measuring it against their assets and finalizing their proposals for the St. Louis Cardinals to review. How much is too much for David Price without a long-term commitment? That’s what the Cardinals are asking themselves. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe has been spewing out some great MLB nuggets lately. In this most recent piece, Cafardo suggests the Cardinals would give up what the Rays need if they can get long-term commitment from Price. Here’s Cafardo’s quote: Would Price ever sign with the Mariners long term? The Mariners don’t view it as an issue because they would have Price for the remainder of this year and next. The Cardinals have shown interest but would want a financial commitment, according to a major league source. Don’t rule out the Giants, who also have had interest in Ben Zobrist to solve their second base situation. If I’m David Price, I take that deal trying not have a sh*t grin on my face on my way out.

No big deal, that’s just the dream of anyone who has ever played or enjoyed baseball since the beginning of time. The Cardinals are expected to be big players on the “buyer” side as the deadline approaches. After Price, there’s a steep decline in top-tier starting pitching talent. For what Price brings to any rotation, the Cardinals could be one of those teams who see the value in winning, while giving up some top prospects in the process.

Chicago Cubs a Perfect Fit for David Price

Can somebody help save the Chicago Cubs? Acquiring veteran all-star pitcher David Price would be a huge step in the right direction.

David Price throws eight shutout innings, wins fifth straight start

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Pushing the Tampa Bay Rays back toward .500 might be David Price's way of dampening trade rumors. The All-Star left-hander pitched eight scoreless innings to win five straight starts for the first time in his major league career, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Saturday night for their fourth consecutive victory. Price (10-7) gave up four...

About all of this “David Price to the Cubs” business…

With the Chicago Cubs boasting a completely stacked farm system, especially in terms of positional prospects, and a stated desire to spend on pitching this offseason, it was only a matter of time before the rumors of them going after David Price started to spiral out of control, especially now that they lack a true ace with Jeff Samardzija having been shipped out. The piece...

Price delivers again in 5-1 win over Twins

Through the first seven batters Saturday night, the Rays had four hits and nothing to show for it thanks to a pair of double plays, one that ended the first inning and another that appeared to take the steam out of the second. But Jose Molina changed that with a single to right field that scored James Loney, and just like that, the game tilted decidedly in favor of the surging Rays...

The David Price Drama Now Features Evan Longoria Too?

Sunday Night baseball is the MLB’s big weekly national showcase. ESPN cherry picks the best series each weekend and puts their considerable production weight (i.e. $$$) behind making a marquee TV show – the bump into a commercial break around the 4th inning featuring Pappy’s was a personal favorite last night. So even though the Dodgers vs Cardinals game selection was made...

The Cubs should probably wait on David Price

A few days ago Ken Rosenthal started a fire among fans of the Chicago Cubs when he started a rumor that they should trade for David Price. This self started rumor began to make Cub fans think and dream of bringing the former Cy Young winning pitcher to the North Side, who said he thought winning the Worls Series with the Cubs would be the “coolest“. That started yet another uncontrollable...

Trade Expectations

The trade season this year will be more interesting than I’ve seen in a long time. The A’s pretty much blew the trade price out of the water for everyone, especially for the Rays with David Price. The Giants are a team that is streaky, one of the best of the league when everyone’s hot, and one of the worst when they aren’t.  Who do you replace?  Can we really judge Scutaro’s...
