David Price rumors: Says winning World Series with Cubs would be 'coolest'

The Chicago Cubs haven’t hoisted a World Series trophy since 1908, so needless to say, they’re due. They won’t be doing so this year but with a roster full of young talent their future seems bright.

It would be a lot brighter with David Price on their roster and it seems as if the Tampa Bay Rays ace has given the notion a thought. Or at least pondered what it would be like to win a World Series on the North Side judging by his recent comments to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

“Winning absolutely is something you want to do,” David Price told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Being a part of something special is also something you want to do. You can take that to a first-place team. You could take that all the way to a last-place team like the Cubs. With the talent they have coming up they could be a very special team in a few years as well. That would probably be the coolest city to win a championship in. They haven’t done it in I’m not sure how long. To do that there that would be the coolest city to win a championship in right now.”

Ironic as it may sound, the Chicago Cubs are likely one of the best suited teams to actually acquire David Price considering their minor league system is stocked with a multitude of high-level prospects. Of course, there’s no indication that they’re actively attempting to do so or if Price would re-sign with the club when he does become a free agent. Though judging by his comments it seems as if he’d at least consider such.
