WHAT WILL PRICE COST?
As trade rumors continue to swirl, one name that has been tossed around a lot recently is David Price. The Tigers have said that they are looking to deal their pending free agents, and the Yankees might be one of the teams interested.
Of course that doesn't mean much in itself. Joe Girardi, when asked about Price, said "He's an ace, that's what he is. And he's been an ace for a long time. He's been durable and takes the ball every fifth day. We'll see what happens." The Skip knows what he's talking about here. And considering that Girardi is usually tight lipped, maybe he's holding out on us?
There's no doubt that the Yankees could be after Price. The Tigers are looking to reboot and will likely listen to offers, but it won't be cheap. He's an ace, after all. The Yankees will have to be big spenders.
We know that they brought up Rob Refsynder recently as a way to showcase him. It's also rumored that Ivan Nova's name was throw in the hat for Johnny Cueto. If he can be used before, he'll easily be on the table again. The Tigers are looking for young players, particularly pitchers and outfielders. It would make sense for the Yankees to offer Refsynder and Nova in an attempt to get Price in the Bronx.
Friday is the deadline. If the Yankees are in on Price, they'll have to make a serious offer soon. Price is not the kind of player you want to miss out on.
