fter the trade for David Price was announced, many people wondered why the Rays couldn’t get a deal at least similar to what the Rays got for James Shields or Matt Garza.

Well it turns out there may have been one, but it looks like the Rays turned it down.

One of the teams that was briefly mentioned yesterday during the reports leading up to the deadline was the Pittsburgh Pirates. Well, according to Peter Gammons on the MLB Network, they made an offer to the Rays that included four prospects and was judged by many to have been better than the Tigers offer, at least talent-wise.
