David Price

  1. Is Clayton Kershaw’s contract a harbinger of things to come?

    Jan 16, 2014, 9:23 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    After learning of Clayton Kershaw‘s seven-year, $215 million deal yesterday a lot of people started to speculate what his contract meant for other pitchers. Comments about how Max Scherzer and David Price were probably doing cartwheels. About how Jon Lester can start looking at higher-priced real estate. That sort of thing. Obviously what one player…

  2. The Mariners could add intrigue to the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes

    Japanese pitching star Masahiro Tanaka will be courted by a handful of interested teams, including the Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Rangers, and Diamondbacks, but as ESPN’s Andrew Marchand details, it may be the Mariners who emerge victorious by the January 24 deadline. Marchand cites some reasoning laid out by Dan Szymborski also at ESPN — that…

  3. The Rays are in no rush to trade David Price

    After the Mariners signed second baseman Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million contract two weeks ago, many predicted that the next shoe to drop would be a trade with the Rays for David Price. But reports indicated that the Rays would only let go of the left-hander if the Mariners included Taijuan Walker in…

  4. Mariners showing “continued interest” in Ervin Santana

    With the Rays still asking the moon for ace David Price, the Mariners have apparently moved on to other options for upgrading their starting rotation. According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Seattle front office has been showing “continued interest” in free agent right-hander Ervin Santana. There was a report in November stating that Santana…

  5. The Rays demanded the world from Cleveland for David Price

    Dec 17, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    david price getty

    Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians asked the Rays what it would take to get David Price. And the Rays said, in essence, everything you got: When the Tribe talked to Tampa Bay, names mentioned by the Rays were Carlos Santana and Danny Salazar. I was told those two were starting…

  6. Corey Hart took Taijuan Walker’s uniform number

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Taijuan Walker

    This is amusing considering the rumors about Seattle possibly trading top pitching prospct Taijuan Walker in a deal for David Price. Today the Mariners introduced Corey Hart and Logan Morrison as official signings and Hart was given jersey No. 27, which is the number Walker wore during his debut this year. MLB.com reporter Greg Johns…

  7. Recapping the Winter Meetings and looking ahead to the rest of the offseason

    A week in the sun and warmth is over. A week of the hottest hot stove action in recent memory preceded it. It’s pretty easy to say that a great bulk of the work teams needed to do before Opening Day 2014 has been accomplished since we tossed the last of our Thanksgiving leftovers. But…

  8. David Price would not consider an extension with the Mariners if he’s traded there

    Dec 11, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    A David Price-to-the-Mariners trade just got a lot harder: Just saw David Price’s agent, Bo McKinnis, in lobby. Asked if Price would consider extension with #Mariners. Said no. MORE — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 11, 2013 Asked McKinnis if Price would consider extensions with other teams. Said yes. Asked which clubs. He declined to answer.…

  9. Diamondbacks “talking about” Indians’ Justin Masterson

    Dec 10, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    Now that the Diamondbacks have found their coveted power bat in Mark Trumbo, the club’s offseason focus has shifted to starting pitching. David Price of the Rays, Chris Sale of the White Sox and Jeff Samardzija of the Cubs are some of the names that have been frequently suggested, but ESPN’s Buster Olney says the…

  10. The Mariners aren’t as serious about trading for David Price as we thought

    Dec 10, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    David Price

    Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners believe David Price “would be theirs” if they agree to include Taijuan Walker in a trade but that, welp, they don’t want to include Walker in a trade. Or James Paxton for that matter. Rather, they’d like to build a trade for Price around position players. Presumably Dustin Ackley…

  11. Hey look, Logan Morrison said something misogynistic

    Dec 9, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Logan Morrison

    Along the same lines as David Price‘s tweet about female drivers right before Thanksgiving, here’s Logan Morrison just now: I dont think Rachel ray is attractive. Then she started cooking, got slightly attractive. she stopped cooking. she stopped being attractive — Logan Morrison (@LoMoMarlins) December 9, 2013 Sigh. (Last year Morrison tweeted criticizing mothers for…

  12. The Dodgers have expressed interest in David Price

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have contacted the Rays to discuss a potential David Price trade. But don’t get too excited, as Hernandez says the Dodgers “don’t plan to aggressively pursue Price” because they don’t want to completely deplete their farm system. Still, you can’t count the Dodgers out…

  13. Mariners could part with Nick Franklin and other young talent to bolster roster

    Dec 8, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    david price getty

    If you thought the Mariners were going to call it an off-season after signing second baseman Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million contract, think again. They’re only just getting started. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets that the Mariners could use some of their young talent, such as middle infielder Nick Franklin, to bolster…

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL — Greetings from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, deep in the dark recesses of the happiest place on Earth. I have been down here with my children since last Tuesday, doing battle with a mouse. The mouse is a worthy adversary. Much respect for him and his hyper-efficiency at separating…

  15. Will the Mariners’ next big move be for David Price?

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Now that the Mariners have signed Robinson Cano for $240 million there’s tons of speculation about their next big move, since the consensus is that Seattle has significant payroll space left to spend and remains aggressive on a number of trade and free agent fronts. Making a run at David Price would be another huge splash,…

  16. Robinson Cano signing only bad if the Mariners stop now

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:14 PM EDT

    cano-110316.standard[1]

    No, there’s very little chance that Robinson Cano will resemble a $24 million player in 2023. But at least he’s better than that now. In a world in which Jacoby Ellsbury is worth $22 million annually and middle-rotation starters get $10 million-$13 million per year, it’s hardly unreasonable to value Cano as a $30 million…

  17. David Price trade market may heat up soon

    Dec 4, 2013, 9:34 PM EDT

    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports has the inside info: The David Price sweepstakes is expected to heat up later this week, multiple executives with interest in the left-handed ace told Yahoo Sports, as the Tampa Bay Rays begin to survey the market for the former Cy Young winner and consider whether to trade him.

  18. David Price says: “Ladies . . . let ur man drive!”

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    David Price has one Cy Young and multiple instances of Twitter failure. Here’s his latest: Everyone thats traveling for thanksgiving please be careful! Driving conditions will be rough with these storms! Ladies..let ur man drive! — David Price (@DAVIDprice14) November 26, 2013 I guess the sentiment of wanting us all to be safe is laudable.…

  19. Max Scherzer wins AL Cy Young Award

    Nov 13, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Max Scherzer became the second Tiger in three years to claim the AL Cy Young Award on Wednesday, picking up 28 of the 30 first-place votes to easily outdistance the Rangers’ Yu Darvish and Seattle’s Hisashi Iwakuma. Darvish was second on 19 ballots to finish as the runner up to Scherzer. Iwakuma was third, getting…

  20. The Dodgers could go after David Price, Masahiro Tanaka

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Must be nice to have money. And, apparently, prospects. Because the Dodgers are prepared — or are at least able — to go after one of the most expensive free agents and the most desirable trade target this offseason, reports Peter Gammons, who spoke with some GMs who speculate that the Dodgers could do both:…

  21. When your* up 2-1 you can dispense with grammar all you’d like

    Oct 16, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    john lackey getty

    Yes, that was intentional. In honor of John Lackey who, as Jeff Passan of Yahoo! notes today in the course of his excellent profile, wears an inspirational t-shirt under his jersey: He won the right to walk around the clubhouse saying WE FEAR NOTHING. The back of the T-shirt screamed big, bold words as well,…

  22. David Price expects to be traded this offseason

    Oct 10, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    david price headshot getty

    David Price has been around Tampa Bay for a while. He knows how they roll. And he too believes that he’ll be on the trading block this winter. Marc Topkin has Price’s comments from Wednesday: “If you go with what’s been done in the past, I guess you’re going to have to think you’re going…

  23. The Rays’ all just wasn’t quite enough

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks, Yunel Escobar

    The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

  24. David Price apologizes for criticizing “nerds” on Twitter

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:32 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    After a poor outing against the Red Sox last night in Game 2 of the ALDS, Rays starter David Price went on Twitter and criticized the TBS postgame show for their analysis, singling out Dirk Hayhurt and Tom Verducci. He also chastised the media around him in the clubhouse, sarcastically retorting, “Sweet questions, nerds.” Dirk…

  25. David Price bashes TBS baseball show

    david price getty

    David Price was lit up for seven earned runs in seven-plus innings Saturday as the Rays allowed the Red Sox to take a 2-0 ALDS lead. Price must have tuned into the TBS postgame show after his outing because this is what he tweeted to his more than 180,000 followers late Saturday night: Dirk Hayhurst…COULDNT…
