Price hopeful for big night

Rays LHP David Price is a finalist, and probably the favorite, for the AL Cy Young Award that will be announced tonight (6-7, MLB Network).

Price, naturally, isn't stressed too much by the possibility, posting to his @DAVIDprice14 Twitter account this morning that he's planning to play video games.

Price said last week he was honored to be a finalist along with Detroit's Justin Verlander and Los Angeles' Jered Weaver, but felt he deserved to win.

I feel like I put forth a very good body of work, and I feel like I did do enough," Price said. "I anticipate, hopefully, it will be a good day."

We have plenty of coverage in today's paper, with a look at the reasons why Price should win, and Gary Shelton's view on the vote.

And - win or lose - we'll have plenty more tonight and Thursday morning.
