There are always a few big prizes in MLB free agency, this year David Price is at or very close to the top prize. The Cubs, along with most of the other top spending teams in the league, are in the running for the ace pitcher, but landing him won’t be easy.
Rumors of Price’s potential contract and what team he may prefer have been floating before the season even ended. With the easy access of Twitter, Price always knows when he’s being talked about.
Monday, he decided to have a little fun with the whole process.
David Price is headed for Japan
I can always tell the big rumor days...tons of mentions when I haven't even said anything!! I love you all BUT I'm going to play in Japan— David Price (@DAVIDprice24) November 24, 2015
Of course, Price was just kidding. Shortly after his first tweet, Price cleared things up and told fans to just stay patient and wait for his decision.
Haha just kidding!! Patience my friends— David Price (@DAVIDprice24) November 24, 2015
Along with the Cubs, the Red Sox, Blue Jays and Dodgers are all interested in Price, among other teams. Price’s contract could reach the $200 million level. The Cubs contract with Jon Lester is worth $155 million.
