Last season, Cy Young pitcher David Price helped the Jays make it to the playoffs, but in the offseason he signed a huge 7 year, 217 million dollar contract as a free agent with division rivals, the Boston Red Sox. Some fans felt betrayed (including me) and on April 16th, was the first start for Price against his former team. Well, how did he do?
The answer is, he did pretty good. He pitched 7 strong innings, giving up 2 earned runs on 6 hits and struck out an impressive 9 picking up his 2nd win of the season as the Jays drop their 2nd game in the series 4-2.
Losing David Price to Boston stung, badly. He was truly an ace pitcher and was always a contender for the Cy Young award, winning one in 2012. I wish David all the best in Boston but in all honesty, I wish he was at least in another division or even the National League so we wouldn’t have to face him. As it stands we may have to face him for 7 more years. The Jays play 4 more series’ this season so Price better watch out. We may have lost this one, but the bats are gonna come out big next time.
