Now that this Masahiro Tanaka business is over with, maybe David Price will finally be traded.
If you missed Wednesday's news, Tanaka ended up with the New York Yankees on a $155 million contract (plus a $20 million posting fee). He was the only real ace to be found on the open market, so teams that still want one might now turn to the trade market for an answer.
And that, of course, entails giving the Tampa Bay Rays a call about Price.
Our goal here is to run through the teams that look like the top suitors for the ace lefty with Tanaka off the market. I'm thinking there are five that make sense, plus one that doesn't make sense but might surprise everyone.
Let's take it away...
