MLB notebook: Rays owner fine with Price trade
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.”

Yankees make moves
The Yankees placed catcher Brian McCann on the seven-day concussion list less than a day after he was hit in the facemask by a foul ball.
Also, the Yankees gave second baseman Brian Roberts his unconditional release. Roberts was hitting .237 with five homers when he was cut Aug. 1.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
