    David Price backtracks on his comments yesterday that he wouldn’t play for the Yankees because of their rule against beards: “It probably wasn’t the best thing to say, but I didn’t mean anything by it,” Price said. “I wasn’t looking to offend the Yankees. It’s probably the best organization in all of sports. Not just baseball,…

    David Price won’t sign with the Yankees if it means shaving his beard? Please. The Captain knows what time it is. From Mark Feinsand of the Daily News: “Do you really think some player would say no, all things considered, if it was a good deal for them? I’m not talking about his situation, but…

    “Is Caitlin ready, Mr. Stevenson? Our reservation is at 7.” [Mr. Stevenson cocks shotgun, Mrs. Stevenson faints]   David Price told Jon Morosi that he wouldn’t sign a long term contract with the Yankees due to their draconian facial hair rules. If they do have draconian facial hair rules, it’s only because they have to…

    This will probably set talk radio and the tabloids afire for a day or so, even if it’s pretty meaningless. Here’s David Price, talking to Jon Paul Morosi about the possibility of him being traded by the Rays this year because of approaching free agency: “If I ever did hit that free-agent market, there would…

    As soon as word surfaced this afternoon that the Mariners and Felix Hernandez were on the verge of a record $175 million extension, many speculated that Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw could eventually push the $200 million mark. We’ll have to wait to find out, but Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti told Dylan Hernandez of the…

    Via Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, listen to Rays GM Andrew Friedman act like he didn’t just totally rip off Dayton Moore and the Royals: “Personally I think this is the most difficult trade we’ve made to date. Both guys were drafted and developed here, they’ve been key players in this organization’s turnaround…

  11. Rays should trade James Shields to fill holes

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    James Shields

    That the Rays will trade a starter this winter seems like a given. With David Price, James Shields, Jeremy Hellickson, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Jeff Niemann and Chris Archer all under contract, the Rays possess both quality and quantity in the rotation. What they don’t have are bats and a lot of money, so with…

  14. When’s the last time the Yankees were such big underdogs?

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    underdog

    Justin Verlander and the Tigers are -180 favorites against the Yankees tonight, which means someone betting on Detroit would have to risk $180 to win $100 and for that bet to be profitable the Tigers would have to win 65 percent of the time. That got me thinking about the last time the Yankees were…

    The Tigers bested the Twins 2-1 in Minnesota on Sunday, but the White Sox failed to keep pace,  losing 6-2 to the Rays to fall three games back in the AL Central with three to play. B.J. Upton hit his 27th and 28th homers for Tampa Bay, and David Price was in control, yielding two…

  19. Jered Weaver becomes first AL pitcher to reach 20 wins this season

    Jered Weaver AP

    It’s silly to put much stock in pitcher wins, but it’s still noteworthy when someone gets there. Jered Weaver became the first American League pitcher to reach 20 victories this season with a 7-4 win over the Rangers last night. Most importantly, it helped the Angels keep pace with the Athletics and Orioles, who also…

  20. Rays top White Sox for eighth straight victory

    A week ago it appeared the Rays may be reduced to the role of spoiler when they faced the White Sox and Orioles in their final seven games of the season. Now, they’re right back in it after winning their eighth straight game on Thursday night against the Pale Hose. Evan Longoria homered in the…

    Braves 4, Marlins 3: The Braves clinch a playoff berth on a Freddie Freeman walkoff jack. It only guarantees them a slot in the one-game gimmicky thing next Friday, but that beats the hell out of last September. The only thing that would have made this better is if Heath Bell, as the the Marlins…

  22. Behind James Shields, Rays set AL record for strikeouts

    Sep 21, 2012, 11:52 PM EDT

    James Shields

    Rays right-hander James Shields reached 200 strikeouts for the second straight season Friday in a 12-1 win over the Blue Jays. Along the way, he recorded the team’s 1,267 strikeout, breaking the American League record set by the 2001 Yankees. J.P. Arencibia was the victim.

    Sep 14, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia is the game’s highest-paid hurler, but David Price has pretty obviously supplanted him as the AL East’s best pitcher. Tampa Bay’s ace picked up his league-leading 18th win Friday as the Rays topped the Yankees 6-4. Price allowed two runs in seven innings to become the AL’s first to 18 victories. Sabathia gave…
