    Worth taking a flier on price

    I'd do that trade, Price should be back by end of this month at the latest.

    I would make this trade in a heartbeat, not only are you getting a Cy Young finalist but you may be getting rid of Lackey at his highest point.

    I agree, Price had a couple of good years but his future is in turmoil.

    I agree with the consensus, do the trade. Lackey is due for the wheels to fall off...

    when I first got the offer it seemed like a no-brainer but i'll admit the triceps injury scares me a bit

    Price is definitely struggling this season. It will be interesting to see if he can turn things around here shortly...

    Seems fair if you think Price will return to form. Bailey will get a lot of opportunities if he stays healthy and Lackey is a guy who will get shelled every 3rd start.

    What is wrong with Price? He had the look of a dominant pitcher a couple of years back.

    Well there is a high probability his triceps was bothering him longer than he let on. I think it is worth taking a shot that we will see the "real" Price once they allow him to heal.

    thanks all, I made the trade...hoping to see Price round back into his usual self...and I agree, I think the triceps injury was more of a problem than people thought

    Good call on accepting the trade. He is worth a gamble over holding onto Lackey.

    lackey has continued to pitch well, but news from the rays is that price feels better than expected and is ahead of schedule....great to hear

    i disagree, i think he just had an injury and now he feels even better than before he went on the DL. I am very glad I made this trade...bailey imploding, jansen closing it down, price feeling great...lackey pitching decently but i think it will be well worth it for price

    If you held on to Lackey and Bailey that was the thing to do.

    price hasnt pitched since being on the DL, and everyone here is quickly writing off a former cy young winner...the guy is an incredible pitcher and has been for quite some time...what evidence or reason do you have that he is "done" or "thrown too many pitches"?? he had a triceps injury that was clearly bothering him to start the year, he's healed and according to his own testimony he feels better than he has in a while, and he is about to come off the DL and pitch...why has everyone written him off so quickly?

    also, why was making the trade a mistake? bailey is out of a job and looking terrible, lackey is a good pitcher this year dont get me wrong, but i'd take jansen and price over lackey and bailey (out of the closer role), 7 days a week and twice on sunday

    All you guys saying he should not have done the trade are crazy. Lackey and Bailey are nothing special, Janssen is already better than Bailey and Price has huge potential.

    No comparison, Price and Timmy are two totally different body types and Lincecum has bad mechanics to boot, It was inevitable that Tiny Tim would lose some velocity.
