Update On Rays David Price Trade Talks
In an article with the latest on the David Price situation, theTampa Bay Times' Marc Topkindismisses reports that the Rays are motivated to move the Cy Young winner by Dec. 31 to avoid having to pay$4MM in deferred money.
"The payment isn't due until Oct. 1, and it is the Rays' obligation, so really a nonfactor, as including it would be the same as asking for cash in a deal and subject to MLB approval," Topkin writes.
While the Mariners are often named as a likely suitor for Price, they "seem to talk more about what prospects they don't want to trade."
