    Of course he's not there yet.

    Does the board think he gets there?

    If he starts pitching righty.

    If the next seven years mirror the first seven, then absolutely. How he ages is going to be very interesting.

    The plaque could read "the greatest July and August pitcher in a generation".

    I can't claim to be a Price expert but, watching his two starts against the Royals, he was very, very good. Didn't get the defense in Game 2 and didn't get run support in Game 6.

    I'd love to have a guy like him in KC's rotation.

    Couldn't beat the Rangers in his entire career until he got a cheapie W in Game 4 of the ALDS in relief because R.A. Dickey couldn't go five.

    Gibbons didn't trust Price to start Game 5, so he used him out of the pen with an 8-1 lead in Game 4 instead. If you're a future HOFer, you get the ball when it's nut-cutting time, no questions asked.

    That's always the deciding factor, whether you can beat the Rangers or not.:rolleyes:

    Going to Boston, he will certainly have the platform to lay out a great HOF case. And if he can get to about 230 wins by the end of this 7 year contract -- averaging 18 wins per year -- with a WS win in the mix and some signature games, then I doubt anyone will give a damn about what happened in a Toronto series back whenever.
