It’s no secret that David Price and former Rays starting pitcher Matt Garza remain best friends. The two have been tweeting back and forth in public, and according to a report from WEEI in Boston talking every day.
Price telling WEEI “Honestly, I talk to him about that every single day,” Price said of his former Rays teammate prior to the All-Star Game.
Price also saying he’d like to see the former Rays starter back in the American League East, and doesn’t care if it’s for the Red Sox or the New York Yankees.
“I hope he comes to the East, just so I can hang out with him. I told him whether he goes to New York or Boston, I hope he doesn’t go to Detroit, because the only time I’d see him then would be in the postseason. We’re done with [the Tigers on the schedule]. I hope he does. I hope he goes to one of those teams and I get to see him again.”
Price went on to tell WEEI “I told him if he goes to New York or Boston and we come there, I’m just going to stay with him. He said that was fine. I would like to see him pitch.”
Garza was a teammate of Price’s from 2008-2010.
Matt Garza’s name has been circling in trade rumors as he is 4-7 with a 4.32 ERA with the Chicago Cubs.
The MLB trade deadline is July 31st.
