Former Rays ace David Price took out a full page ad in the Tampa Bay Times Tuesday thanking all the fans, coaches and everyone who supported him while he was a pitcher in Tampa.
The icing on the cake here is the “Love David and Astro Price” at the bottom.
Price was drafted as a first overall pick by the Rays in 2007 and arrived in late 2008. He was a huge factor in the franchises’ 2008 run at the World Series and has been an All-Star four times. He won the Cy Young Award in 2012 and was runner-up in 2010. And he’s easily the best pitcher in franchise history. Look at the Rays pitching leaderboards.
Price was traded to the Detroit Tigers in a three team trade as the trade deadline expired.
