NASHVILLE -- In the last week, top end free-agent starters David Price, Jordan Zimmermann and Zack Greinke all signed mega-deals. Soon to follow were John Lackey and Jeff Samardzija.
David Price won the press conference. Now, can he win on - and off - the mound for the Red Sox?
David Price hasn't had much success in the post-season. He's winless in eight career starts in the post-season and has a career ERA of 5.12
Not everyone was meant to play in Boston.
Just ask Carl Crawford. Or Adrian Gonzalez. Or many others who have found the market too negative, too intense, too demanding.
The Red Sox made David Price the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history to take the ball every Opening Day, and, they hope, Game 1 of many post-season series to come.
