Boston’s Price: Wrist better after cortisone shot

BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox left-hander David Price says he’s feeling better, just days after getting a cortisone shot to treat a cyst in his left wrist.

“First time I’ve had an injection like that, so it made it sore the first 48 hours,” the 33-year-old said Saturday before Boston’s game with the Los Angeles Angels. “But yesterday it started feeling a lot better.”

Price was placed on the injured list on Thursday after an MRI revealed the cyst. Price is 7-5 with a 4.36 ERA over 21 starts this season.

He said the discomfort in his wrist started “about three or four starts ago” and was affecting his hand strength and ability to execute his pitches — particularly his cutter and change-up. It caused pitches to come out of his hand about a split-second too early, he said.

There has to be a better way to phrase that title- it sounds really off to me….

Price responds as Eckersley dispute resurfaces

Two years ago, Red Sox lefty David Price set up a meeting to apologize to Dennis Eckersley for yelling at the Hall of Famer in front of his teammates on a team flight from Boston to Toronto.

When Eckersley chose not to show up for the meeting, he said he just wanted to “move on.”

And that’s why Price was angered on Wednesday by a profile on Eckersley in The Boston Globe in which the NESN analyst and former closer discussed the incident.

“I didn’t know how to deal with that,” Eckersley said of the incident. “I don’t plan on saying a word to him, I don’t plan on seeing him, never. I don’t really give a [expletive] one way or another. I don’t think he really cares one way or the other.”

David Price wants MLB to “come clean” on the juiced baseballs

We’ve talked a lot about juiced baseballs over the past couple of years. The evidence that the seams are shorter and that the ball has less drag on it is pretty clear and the numbers are undeniable.

March/April 2019 witnessed more homers — 1144 — than any month in baseball history. On a per game average, that comes out to 2.62 per game, which is one of the highest rates for a month in Major League history. Keep in mind, of course, that the first month of the season usually sees the lowest home run rates of the year due to the cold weather. It’s only going to get worse. Or better, depending on what you think of homers.

You know who doesn’t like home runs? Pitchers. And one pitcher really wants Major League Baseball to own up to the juiced baseballs.

I forget- does anyone still really dig the long ball at this point?

David Price has become Boston Red Sox’s most outspoken man, doesn’t care if he’s criticized for it; ‘I don’t give a (expletive)’

BOSTON — David Price has been the Boston Red Sox’s best starting pitcher so far in 2019 with a 3.60 ERA, 3.19 FIP and 11.1 strikeouts per nine innings in his five starts. He has also been Boston’s most outspoken player.

On a Red Sox team where many players are guarded around the media, Price, who will start for the Red Sox on Thursday in Chicago vs. the White Sox, is speaking his mind. He’s not holding back. He’s unaware of how his opinions have been received by the Boston media, and he’s not concerned about it, he said.

“I don’t know. One, I don’t care. Two, I don’t look for it. Three, I don’t give a (expletive). Period. Period,” Price said at Fenway Park earlier this week.

Price first spoke out about how Major League Baseball “needs to step up” with marketing its superstars, including African-American players.

Disappointingly, it seems that, for all his outspokenness, he had nothing to say on the record about Chris Sale.
