    This one’s … odd. But thankfully fairly innocent. From Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times comes word that Rays pitcher David Price was nearly assaulted outside of a Tampa restaurant Friday after confronting a man who was relieving himself on the 26-year-old left-hander’s car. No one was injured — not Price, nor the man.…

    Trevor Cahill

    Trevor Cahill won 18 games as a 22-year-old for the A’s in 2010.
