The cryptic Tweet says it all. David Price a Cub?
Not so fast.
According to MLB Rumours and I made a post yesterday according to the Inquisitr this could happen. Yes, there’s some history between Price and Maddon and the Cubs could use some help in the rotation. If this deal does come through, I’m going out on a limb to say that the Cubs are World Series contenders.
Now, before this happens, there has to be some other pieces that have to fall into place. First, Jon Lester has to get over his love in with David Ross. It’s no secret that the two are inseparable. Jon Lester is a great pitcher but he’s got to learn Kyle Schwarber’s way and Miguel Montero. Put Jon Lester out of his comfort zone. Make him hungry for it because so far this season, I’ve yet to see it.
Starlin Castro. Either trade him or put him in lead off.
Another guy who is too deep in his comfort zone. He needs to get his head back in the game, but the Cubs need to decide his fate soon.
So, David Price would be a rental but man, what a rental he would be. He would ask a lot of cash. Should Theo Epstein open the wallet and reunite David Price with Maddon and bench coach Dave Martinez, this should be an exciting finish to the season.
The Cubs would give up some top talent on the farm in order to land Price. I think they should go for it.
Stay tuned for updates.
