Success, sometimes, can be defined by the company you keep.

Monday afternoon, Rays pitcher David Price looked out from behind his table and over a gaggle of microphones, digital recorders and cameras at the All-Star Game media session to see Josh Hamilton to his right, Prince Fielder across the aisle and Miguel Cabrera to his left. Derek Jeter was nearby. Joe Mauer. David Ortiz.

The view, Price acknowledged, was pretty good.

"When you look around and see all these nameplates out here, these are the guys you see just about every night on ESPN doing something good," Price said.

"It's awesome being in this room with these guys. These are the best players in baseball right now. To be a part of that group is very special."

Price, though, should feel comfortable being there by now.
