    Rays thinking about moving David Price?

    According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Rays could trade David Price this offseason.
    This isn't the first report by Olney indicating that Price is available. The Rays don't have to the payroll to sign him to a long-term deal, and the expectation is that he'll eventually be dealt. Olney lists the Rangers, Red Sox, and Orioles as possible landing spots. After agreeing to a one-year, $4.35 million contract last offseason, Price is arbitration-eligible and has a projected salary of $10 million for 2013.

    If the price is right, he can be a Yankee I guess

    Just because he doesn't hit free agency for another couple of season's doesn't mean he won't get a lot of money through arbitration. The sooner the Rays trade him, the more value he has in a trade.

    If traded 3 years before free agency. Pretty much only the Rangers would have enough talent to trade. Their top 3 prospects at a minimum would be the starting price!

    A whole bunch of teams will be in that conversation, and the Rangers' top 3 (I assume we're talking Olt, Martin, Perez) is less exciting than the hype machine makes them seem. Olt is already blocked from his best position by their best player, Martin isn't a high upside guy, and Perez has a long way to go before he is who he might be able to become.

    Why didn't you factor Jurickson Profar into the discussion about the top 3 prospects from the Rangers?

    Because there is an extremely high possibility he will be spending time in Center Field next season if Ham bone walks.

    Really? So why has he seen zero, count 'em, zero starts in CF playing winter ball for Licey? Why didn't the Rangers ask Licey to stick him at the spot to get him experience there seeing how he has zero, count 'em, zero starts in CF over his entire minor-league career? Wouldn't that be a logical move to make? Oh right, they have absolutely no plans to move him to CF.

    And cite one source that has him possibly moving to CF? Jon Daniels? Nope. Nolan Ryan? Nope. Anyone in Rangers management? Nope. Hey, I'd settle for media/blogger sources. Scott Lucas? Nope. T.R. Sullivan? Nope. Evan Grant? Nope. AJM? Nope. Jason Parks? Nope. Jamey Newberg? Nope. Ken Rosenthal? Nope. Etc. Why not just man up and admit you made a mistake in excluding Profar instead of trying to cover for yourself like a loser with your widdle pwide at stake.

    Ah, that makes the conversation much more interesting. I assume everyone automatically takes him off the table because he's so Hansel right now.

    Of course they're thinking about it, but unless a team (likely from the NL) is offering a boatload of prospects they'll keep him.


    Vic Mackey: You better figure out how much you hate me. And how you're going to deal with that. 'Cause I'm not going anywhere.

    This sums up every sports interview, ever.

    yup.


    The Rays will have to be over-joyed with the offer made for him. They don't have enough reason to trade him.


    I can see them trying to extend him extremely long term soon honestly (but that depends on how badly he wants to be a Ray). If they don't start to get head-way on an extension, then they might start shopping him more aggressively next off-season along with Shields.

    Don't see him being moved this offseason either, but it is not so far fetched either. He's going to be getting expensive as all heck, and they have a replacement in the making in Moore.

    Cubs trade offer:

    Jeff Samardzija (3 years of a more cheaper SP before FA, slots right in), Darwin Barney (fills their starting SS hole), Javier Baez (long term MIF prospect, one of the best in the game), Wellington Castillo (plug and play C, another Rays hole), Josh Vitters (UT 3B/1B/LF), Brett Jackson (OF depth, another current hole on the Rays), and Gioskar Amaya/Ronald Torreyes/Arismendy Alcantara (long term 2B or UT options).

    LOL that wouldn't get it done. You can't just add more players to make a deal worth it. You actually have to include good top prospects to get one of the best pitchers in MLB who's also under contract for yrs and is still young.

    Totally can.

    Baez > any prospect you were offering up from the Dodgers according to any non-Dodgers fan source.
