Right Price for the Red Sox

Last season the Red Sox Struggled to fill the huge gap left by Jon Lester going to the Chicago Cubs. Many pitchers tried but Lester’s mastery on the mound has been proven to be irreplaceable.
Entering this post season many in Red Sox nation expected and called for the signing of a big name free agent to balance out the starting rotation. GM Dave Dombrowski responded to this angst by delivering the top free agent pitcher of these winter meetings….. none other than Ace lefty David Price.

This is a major coup because not only does it give the Red Sox one of the most consistent lefties of the past 10 years…. Behind Lester of course…. but it keeps rival teams in the AL East like Champion Toronto Blue Jays, big spenders New York Yankees and competitive Tampa Bay from using the tall lefties wide array of pitching skills against them on a regular basis.

Price also has a spectacular track record and E.R.A. at Fenway Park with a super low earned run average as well as 10 + career wins while only suffering a few losses.

There will be some patching up to do between him and Ortiz as they have had some differences but he will be a welcome addition to a sore Red Sox pitching staff. Imagine Price for 7 innings then Uehara for the 8th, and Kimbrel to close out the 9th. Suddenly things are looking way up for the Red Sox pitching staff.  Good Job and Go Sox.
