(AUDIO) David Price Was Surprised He Didn’t Get Traded this Offseason

Rays ace David Price joined Booger and Rich to answer questions about trade rumors that surround him and what his expectations are in 2014.

Price told us he was surprised that he’s still a member of the Rays after rumors swirled in the offseason that he would be traded. Price said he knows how the Rays have to operate by trading away high contract players for prospects and thought he might be on the move in the winter. Price did say he’s happy to still be a member of the Rays.

With ownership spending money on free agents like James Loney and Grant Balfour, Price said he was happy to see them raise the payroll. To him, ownership sees the potential this team has and was willing to make a push.

Price was very honest about his struggled at the outset of last season. He said he didn’t put in enough work before the season, especially when he made trips out to California. He’s learned from last season and knows he’ll be able to handle his preparation better in the future.

What are the expectations this season? Price said that if the team plays strong defense, they can win 90 games. The goal is to win the division and avoid the Wild Card play-in game.
