I can't think of one other pitcher to ever to command a package as valuable as Lawrie and TDA.
David Price is great but let's not lose our minds here.
If anyone else can think of a package for an established "ace" that actually occurred and beats that package, please feel free to speak up.
I don't know of too many aces in their prime and controllable for 3 years ever even potentially being available on the market.
I mean the Halladay trade netted a pretty good package (at the time) and he was a year away from free agency, made it pretty much known that he wanted to be traded and was entering the declining phase of career.
None of those seem to apply with Price so I don't see why it would be unreasonable for the Rays to get a least that given the dearth of starting pitching currently available on the market and the price in $
I'd say top 30. I think he was actually a bit higher than that on Jonah Keri's trade value list that was published the other day. I get where the other poster is coming from with the top 5 thing though, even if that is a bit much. As silly as it is to overrate players because of their passport, there is no denying that that does add to his value for the Jays specifically.
