Rany said this morning on the radio that he thinks the following package would net David Price from the Rays:

Eric Hosmer (gets it most of the way there on his own) +
Jason Adam (type/level) + Robinson Yambati/Sugar Ray Marimon type

I would do that trade. It would be hard to give up Hos, but worth it...

I love Hosmer, but David Price is controlled almost as long (FA in 2016 vs. FA in 2017). There's also the possibility of negotiating an extension that buys out a few FA years in return for more up front.

Something like that is probably the only way they get a true ace in there.

Insert David Price in my rotation projection from earlier (as at that point, they probably don't sign someone like Anibal Sanchez).

David Price
Jeremy Guthrie
Kevin Millwood/Carlos Villanueva/Joe Saunders/etc. (stopgap!)
Jake Odorizzi
Bruce Chen/Will Smith/Luis Mendoza

with Paulino and/or Duffy pushing somebody late.

The lineup takes a potential hit long-term, but you've still got several talented young hitters to build around in Moose, Myers, Perez. Gordon and Butler are just entering their primes. Escobar appears to be a solid hitter, especially considering his defense.

That's a good rotation, with a true TOR guy. The lineup should still be productive.

Could make 2013 very interesting.
