Rays Maddon, Price expect no trade
Manager Joe Maddon said he does not expect ace LHP David Price to be traded before Thursday's 4 p.m. deadline for non-waiver deals, suggesting the Rays have not found a team willing to meet their demands for the Cy Young award winner.
"It takes two to dance, boys,'' Maddon said after the 5-0 loss to the Brewers.
Price also said he does not expect to be traded.
The market has been and is likely to continue to evolve by the deadline, with plenty of rumors expected.
The Cardinals, who had been considered among the teams most interested in Price, made a deal for Indians RHP Justin Masterson. What the Red Sox do with starters Jon Lester and John Lackey may have an impact as well.
