The Boston Red Sox have found their ace, agreeing to a seven-year, $217 million contract with David Price.
Whenever the Red Sox acquire a bit time player, everyone starts to wonder if they will be able to handle the bright lights in Boston.
With one signing -- and, yes, $217 million -- it's possible that the Red Sox Tuesday went from buyers to sellers in the pitching department.
For the past few seasons, Red Sox ownership hasn't been shy about its opposition to long-term deals to pitchers 30 and older.
It was reported last week that the Red Sox would “go $30-40 million above anyone else" to sign free agent pitcher David Price.
