Max Scherzer or David Price– These two options are going to take a lot to be able to get them. Max Scherzer and David Price are going to warrant prospects being sent back in a trade. We are talking about Anthony Rendon and possibly Lucas Giolito. That isn’t something that Rizzo will want to do. That is giving up too much in my opinion for either one of them, as they will only have one and two years left on their contracts respectively.
If you are going to make a deal for either one of these two, you wait until they are a free agent and see how much money you can throw at them. If Rizzo feels he has enough cash to do it, then you wait out this season for another starter and go after Scherzer in 2015.
