Though the franchise has done a respectable job of managing to contend consistently, this year’s Rays are the worst in the division. They are 100/1 to win the American League, and they are just 200/1 to win the World Series outright.

Why not make the best of a bad situation by dealing a pitcher in his prime for a series of prospects? Is that out of line with Tampa Bay’s line of thinking?

There’s the possibility that the lefty ends up on a contender within the AL East Division, but the Rays may be reluctant to entertain that thought. Alternatively, he could wind up plying his trade for a National League sportsbook favorite like the San Francisco Giants or St. Louis Cardinals.

Regardless, with Tampa’s world upside down, it’s time to move Price. Brace for the sportsbook implications.
