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 to get traded,” Price, 28, said. “That’s kind of the way it’s happened with this organization when pitchers kind of get to this period in their career. We’ve seen it happen a couple of times already. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know what’s happened in the past.”
They’d probably get a nice haul for him. If your team needs pitching and has prospects, get used to hearing Price’s name in the news as the hot stove warms up.
UPDATE: I talked about a potential Price trade on SportsDash on the NBC Sports Network today:
