If that's true then Tampa made a big mistake, IMO. I still can't believe they accepted that very underwhelming package for Price.
Nelson Cruz type? You mean, the one power RH bats that plays the OF and will be available next year?
2/22 is nothing in today's market, even if Prado proves to be nothing more than a league average player. That's what they are paying him for 2015-16.
The problem is Prado doesn't hit enough for a 3B or RFer. I'd prefer Nelson Cruz type for RF.
This is the same problem we had this year,
You do realize if Prado was a FA this past offseason, there would have been a very good chance Yankees offered him 3/$33 or 3/$36? That's the market right
Absolutely. And Cashman said he exchanged words with TB about Price, even offering our best prospects, but he said TB was unwilling to move him within
