MLB notebook: Rays owner fine with Price trade

| Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, 8:00 p.m.

Rays owner Stuart Sternberg said he doesn't regret trading former Cy Young Award winner David Price to the Tigers.

Price, 28, can be a free agent after next season and could command a bigger contract than Tampa Bay would be able to give.

“With David it wasn't three, four, five, eight guys, and I think people got that and understood that we're still in it to win it,” Sternberg said. “It really was the classic one-eye-on-the-present, one-eye-on-the-future kind of deal.”
