ESPN: Yankees Saved from Roster-Clogging Contract by Their Rivals

David Price has reached an agreement on a seven-year, $217 million deal with the Boston Red Sox, according to The Boston Globe, which cited a source.

The left-hander was 18-5 with an AL-leading 2.45 ERA last season with the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays. He was second in the AL in pitching WAR at 6.0 in 2015.

Boston foolishly decided this offseason that having young impact players and highly-paid top of the market players was the way to go. Good luck with that losing strategy, Boston.
