Soon twitter and all kinds of rumors buzzed around about the Cardinals interest in David Price.
It certainly does look like the Cardinals will now look for pitching via free agency. Price is coming into the offseason after going 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA in 32 starts, striking out 225 batters in 220 innings. Price is a top of the line starter and would be an ace on almost any team in baseball and Fobes.com reports that Price “is expected” to look for a deal around $200 million. Let’s not forget last year the Cardinals were mentioned as a trade option for Price last year and they also could be a fit. With David Price in their rotation would help the Cardinals compete with the Cubs for next year. Let’s face it the Cubs maybe the team to beat in 2016. If there is any time to bring in a top notch pitcher, right now is the time. The Cardinals TV deal in 2018 would help with bringing in top notch talent like David Price. One of the biggest factors is Price’s family that lives near Nashville, Tennessee which is five hours away from St. Louis and this could be a huge difference in deciding where he wants to go. I think we will see some movement sooner than later.
