One of the bigger questions heading into spring training was whether or not David Price would be able to win a spot in the rotation. Very early on we realized he was fighting an uphill battle. First it was his developing changeup, but more recently it was the need to gain better command of his fastball. In the end, Jeff Niemann was named the fifth starter and Price was back in Durham.
Now the question becomes: When will David Price be promoted to the Rays? Dirtbag Fan thought this sounded like the perfect premise for another contest. We agree.
Over at the home of The Rayshead Army on Facebook, we have set up a discussion thread asking this exact question. Your task, if you choose to accept, is to migrate over to that thread and give us the date you think David Price will be promoted to the Rays this season.
All we need is the month and day. In case the news breaks in the middle of the night, we will use the time stamp on Marc Topkin’s blog post reporting the promotion.
All guesses must be registered by midnight (Eastern) this Sunday. The person that guesses the closest to the actual date will win their choice of a T-shirt from the Rays Index Store. If more than one person is closest to the actual date, each person will receive a T-shirt.
