Okay, so in the interest of trying not to completely throw in the towel, here is some fat to chew:
We've known all along that, whether they were in the hunt or not, the Rays would be limiting David Price's innings this season, so as not to put the team's present ahead of it's future.
I say what better time then right now to stick Price in the 'pen, and help solve several problems at one time... you know, two birds- one ball.
First, moving King David to the bully helps save his arm for future campaigns- which is of the greatest importance (obviously).
Second, moving Price to the 'pen would put a legitimate arm out there, so that if the game is on the line in the 6th or 7th inning of a must-win game the Rays can call-on someone with gas and a live, major league arm to come preserve the win.
I can't think of a more opportune time to make the move. Can you?
