A few years back we headlined Carl Crawford as the richest ex-Durham Bull ever. That record, a mere $142,000,000, has been crushed.
The same monster checkbook that bought Crawford just bought David Price for $217,000,000, who will go to work for the Boston Red Sox next season.
Price didn’t spend a lot of time with the Bulls. As a rising star he came up from Double-A Montgomery near the end of 2008 and even went up to the Rays for a few September relief appearances. He started 8 games as a Bull in 2009 and never looked back. [stats]
We wish him well.
