Any time you can trade a top 5 player in the league and a good pitcher (albeit on a negative contract) for a mediocre outfielder with a bad back, you have to jump on that.

Pretty easy decision, can’t pay him 35 million a year until he’s nearly 40. Do what you gotta do.

This isn’t the Lester debacle, not close really.
Yup. If you listen to the fans, you’ll be sitting with them soon enough.

With the farm system bare, they’re going to need to spend shrewdly to compete in the early 2020s. Committing $35 million or more per year to a right fielder isn’t consistent with that. So even in the short to medium term, this was a necessary move. I’m not happy with the moves DD made to make this move necessary, but kudos to CB for being decisive.

Edit: I like the deal a lot less if we’re picking up half the tab for Price.

Can we ask everyone that's "giving up on the Sox" or baseball to give us a date? Because a lot of you guys are still posting and that's not giving up.

I'm not giving up. Just realized when Laddie posted that I don't need MLB.tv any more with the new cable package I have. :)

If we had the chance to get Dustin May and didn't take it, I'm going to lose my mind. I love May more than Luzardo (injuries). May is fantastic with amazing control.

Nightengale: Price stays with the Dodgers.

David Price will be staying put with the #Dodgers, but Kenta Maeda may be on the move.
Now this starts to make more sense, MIN needs pitching now, so they get Maeda and send BOS a prospect.

Let’s go Dodgers!!!! I kinda loved them to begin with (great unis, great stadium, long drought); now I’m all in. Can we, er, they throw in Devers while they’re at it?
