08:07 AM ET 02.20 | David Price has quite a bit going for himself these days. [Price] is the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner, the face of the Tampa Bay Rays, and the smiling, tweeting star chosen for the MLB 2K13 video game cover. He's also a Vanderbilt-educated realist. "I do know this could be my last year here -- or half-year, whatever it is," Price acknowledged Tuesday. ... "I do realize that. (Until) that time gets a little bit closer, I'm not going to put any extra thought into it, because it doesn't matter if I think about it or not. I have no say-so in what goes on the next three years of my career. It's all up to the organization. I don't think about it. If that's what they feel they need to do, then they'll do it."

Price seems like a nice guy. Why would he want to end up in that Godforsaken location called NY?

Baconfest tickets go on sale Wednesday
February 18, 2013 (Chicago Tribune)

Limber up your fingers and clear some space on your credit card; Baconfest Chicago 2013 is coming.

The event itself will take place on April 20 in the UIC Forum, but general-admission tickets will go on sale at noon CST Wednesday. If sales go as they have in previous years, your window of opportunity will be very, very small. As in a couple of hours, maybe less.

Exactly. Don't mind him clem. This is a Yankees fan that 'secretly roots for the Cubs'. He ain't right. Plus his team will have a hard time signing Cano and owes a ton of money to its existing players. They will not be signing Price.

what makes you so sure of that? Hal probably will spend the money if he thinks it is necessary. And for a pitcher like Price if he thought he could get him by spreading a little of the YES money around I believe he woud think it necessary.
As for your silly so-called slight about the Cubs: Better a Cubs fan then rooting for the lame pale hose.

The Yankees have money. If they have a shot at getting a pitcher like Price, they'll pull the trigger 189 million payroll be damned.

Brilliant observation by Price that this could be his last year. Nothing gets by him.

Uh-oh. Please don't send me e-mails that you need to warn me with "beware." m'kay?

YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO OPEN THAT.

The Price is Right for New York!!!

I would hate to see him go. But it is the cycle of the way the Rays do business. They have great arms in the wings. So we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

The downside is they drafted most of these great arms when they were bad. As the these stars leave the supply of new stars is waning. Even with all the success they can't fill the stadium, and they haven't won anything.

I think I'm safe. He didn't send it to me. I think he has different mailing lists labeled, "Anything Goes (FN guys)," and "Be Careful (Cat)."

The visual with haunt for me forever.
