Kazmir appears to be getting another shot with the Cleveland Indians.  Sad story, hope he can learn how to pitch without the power pitches.

You're also not taking into account several raises by other players. Longoria, Zobrist, Moore have guaranteed contracts not to mention Price would account for nearly a quarter of their entire payroll. Get a stadium in place then I agree with you. But for now, I don't see it. Their payroll does not increase annually like other teams.

Of course you can say they cleared money off of the books, because that's exactly what they did.  You're being absurd.

The Rays can afford him because of the trade.  That's a huge reason why they made the trade.  Stadium or no stadium, Price is going nowhere until 2015 at the earliest.
