Cardinals Don’t Need To Over Pay For Rays’ Price
MLB RUMORS: David Price
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports warns the St. Louis Cardinals should not overpay to acquire David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays by trading Oscar Taveras. Rosenthal points out that the decline of offense around MLB and the rarity of controlable hitters in opining that Taveras is too valuable to lose.
He also writes that the Cardinals are not typically big spenders.
However, the team could create room for Price and his $7MM and roughly $18-20MM 2015 salary by opting not to re-sign free agents Jason Motte and Pat Neshek.
