David Price... Stay or Go?

david price tampa bay rays trade deadline
[font=Oxygen]Throughout the past couple months David Price has had to deal with rumors of being traded. He already told the media about a month go that he didn't like hearing the rumors. He just wanted the Tampa Bay Rays to make up their mind. It's unclear if Price will be dealt because the Rays have less than a week to trade him. David Price is an ace and could be in the talks for Cy Young this year with a 3.08 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 183 strikeouts, and 11 wins over 163 innings. It's hard to get rid of a pitcher like that because the Rays need something big in return. The another problem with this trade is that the Rays are starting to get on a hot streak. The Tampa Bay Rays have been playing some great baseball this month and are now 7.5 games back in the AL East and 4 games back in the AL Wild Card. When the rumors started circulating about Price being traded, the Rays were done and looking towards next year. Now they might want to keep Price around throughout the rest of the season because there's a good possibility that the Rays might make the postseason and go far. I'm glad there's only less than a week left until the Trade Deadline because then the rumors stop until this offseason. Hopefully the Rays keep David Price as their ace and continue strong until the end of the season. But if the Rays trade him this week, I hope they trade him to a contending team because I would love to see Price with a ring at the end of this season. [/font]
