David Price has reached an agreement on a seven-year, $217 million deal with the Boston Red Sox, according to The Boston Globe, which cited a source.
The left-hander was 18-5 with an AL-leading 2.45 ERA last season with the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays. He was second in the AL in pitching WAR at 6.0 in 2015.
Acquired by the Blue Jays at the trade deadline, Price went 9-1 with a 2.30 ERA in the regular season for Toronto. The postseason was a different story, however, as a ghastly 6.17 ERA was coupled with a 1-2 mark in the Blue Jays' first playoff appearance since 1993.
Price spent the first six seasons of his career with the Tampa Bay Rays, including a Cy Young year in 2012. The Rays dealt him to Detroit in 2014.
Price went 13-8 in 32 regular-season starts with the Tigers over parts of two seasons, but he failed to be the final piece in bringing a World Series title to Detroit.
That is stupid! No player is worth that kind of change.
Didn't Price say he wanted to stay in Toronto? I'm guessing he would have gone to Tuktoyaktuk if he had that kind of money thrown his way.
Just proves Toronto is not a big league city.
No commitment to their fans
Hey Anonymous #3...
Not a big league city... No commitment to their fans...
Come on, use a little bit of brain power. A 30 year old PITCHER, signed for 7 years... Yes he can opt out after 3 years, but if he is playing poorly after that he is going to stay. No one is worth that kind of money. I am a HUGE Jays fan. But this is what is wrong with the game.. There is no need for that kind of money...
I hope David has a great career, but at 30 years of age and signed for 7 years... I would not take that gamble at that money...
