Rays owner: No regrets over trading Price

CHICAGO (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays owner Stuart Sternberg said he doesn't regret trading former Cy Young Award winner David Price to the Detroit Tigers. Sternberg said before Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs that the one regret he could think of as an owner was when Tampa Bay didn't add a hitter during the 2010 season. He doesn't have any second thoughts about the three-team trade July 31 that sent Price to Detroit. The Rays acquired left-hander Drew Smyly and minor-league shortstop Willy Adames from the Tigers along with infielder Nick Franklin from the Seattle Mariners. For Sternberg and the Rays, moves like that are what the small-market franchise has to do to stay competitive, even if it means sending away stars.
