Price offers take on what 20 wins would mean
CHICAGO -- David Price leads the Major Leagues with a 2.56 ERA, and on Sunday, he'll start for the Rays with a chance to earn his career-high 20th win of the season.

"It's tough to [win 20 games]," Price said. "You get like 33 starts, so you have to go out there and win 67 percent of your starts at the Major League level.

"You can't have that three-, four-, five-game stretch where you're not winning. You can't go a month or a half a month without winning. You have to continue to get some wins. You have to have a streak of probably six or seven wins. It's not easy to get there."

Price, who also won 19 games in 2010, noted that many factors go into winning 20.

"There's a lot of games this year where I felt like I could have won," Price said. "I sometimes feel like I should have won, and other times I feel like I shouldn't have won and I did win."

Price offered his opinion about what it means to a pitcher to be able to say that he won 20 games at some point during his Major League career.

"First and foremost, it's a team thing," Price said. "I feel like every time I've pitched, we've been Silver Sluggers and Gold Gloves at every position. It's been one of those things where on my day, we play extremely well. And I've benefited from it. It's pretty special and I'd like to get to that mark. Not a whole lot of guys get to get to that mark. I think it would be good for me and good for the organization."
