David Price is living his best life.
The Boston Red Sox left-hander put his postseason demons behind him in 2018, coming through with big wins in the clinching games of the American League Championship Series and World Series. Moments before the Sox’s celebratory parade Wednesday, Price said he will not exercise the opt-out in his contract, meaning he is staying in Boston for the remaining four years of his deal.
Then, of course, he got to celebrate with the city in the well-attended parade.
Price seems genuinely happy right now, and following the parade, he sent out a tweet that conveyed that, complete with some pretty interesting (and for Red Sox fans, exciting) hashtags.
The Red Sox were baseball’s best in 2018, and keeping Price around was Step 1 in ensuring they remain competitive for years to come.
