The David Price guessing game is over, that is what team would he decide to join is over, as the Boston Red Sox drop the largest contract ever awarded to a pitcher with $217 million dollars and seven years on the 30-year old lefty.

Price was being rumored to possibly join the New York Yankees, but the Red Sox jumped quickly and secured the prized possession to go along with top closer Craig Kimbrel, who they acquired from the San Diego Padres a couple of weeks ago.

Price won 18 games in 2015, nine with the Detroit Tigers and nine with the Toronto Blue Jays after being traded at the July deadline. He didn’t pitch very well in the postseason, but in the regular season, he is 104-56, with a career 3.09 ERA.

MLB.com reports that the deal is pending Price passing a physical.
