Evan Drellich: David Price contradicts himself over and over again

If players are bothered by Eckersley’s comments, the solution for them is to grow up.

David Price plagued with left elbow woes again | MLB.com

Ugh.

A topsy-turvy season for Red Sox lefty David Price has added another twist, as the starting pitcher will miss his start Friday and will likely go back on the 10-day disabled list with recurring left elbow woes, a source told MLB.com. Brian Johnson will start Friday night against the Royals.

Benintendi hits two homers as Red Sox sparkle in Texas

Price, it has since been learned, sharply criticized Eckersley for an on-air comment about Eduardo Rodriguez pitching poorly in a minor-league injury rehabilitation game that day.

“Standing up for my teammates,” Price said. “Whatever crap I catch for that, I’m fine with it.”

Red Sox LHP David Price And Dennis Eckersley Have Confrontation

I hope Price pitches well enough to opt out of his contract. I already dread the last few years. His temperament will only make his end that much worse.

Hurley: David Price Making Case Against Himself As Fit For Boston « CBS Boston

This type of reaction doesn’t bode well for David Price’s future in Boston.

As reported by Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald, Price pulled Drellich aside after the Red Sox’ loss to the Yankees and berated him loudly enough for reporters on the other side of a closed door to hear. Price later continued his confrontation with Drellich, and also snapped at Buckley (who had been told by the Red Sox media relations director to stick around to talk to Price).

The interactions with Price ended when he shouted, “[Expletive] them! [Expletive] them all. All of them.”

As one might imagine, such a meltdown drew attention, and it will assuredly be discussed in the days and weeks to come.

Piling on David Price makes no sense

CHB, Mr. Sensitivity, exposes David Price for the sensitive guy that he is. Sensitive players shouldn’t sign big-money contracts to play in Boston. Sensitive players shouldn’t be talking to CHB.

“I’m not cautious,’’ he insisted. “I’m the same me. I don’t talk to the media every day like I did last year and I guess I get blown up for that. But I was honest with everything they asked me last year and I get blown up for that. So they did this to themselves. Talk to me on the day I pitch and that’s it. There are no more personal interviews. There are no more asking me questions on a personal level. That’s done.’’

Struggles show David Price still isn’t ready for Boston Red Sox return - Boston Red Sox Blog- ESPN

Maybe signing 30+ starting pitchers to big free agent contracts really isn’t a good idea.

Price, meanwhile, made what was supposed to be his final Triple-A rehab start in his return from a spring training elbow scare. He was in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, one hour from Fenway, but after giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits and expending 89 pitches to get through only 3⅔ innings, he must have felt light years away.

Of course, nobody knows for sure how Price felt, physically or otherwise, because he didn’t stick around to speak to reporters. And Farrell deferred when he was asked if Price would be ready to start for the Red Sox next week, as had been the hope.

“We’ll sit and talk with him [Thursday],” Farrell said. “We’ll check with him in the morning, make sure there’s no physical ailments—which we don’t expect any—and we’ll sit with him and map out the next step.”
