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….

F*ck it. After dropping 2 in a row to the halos, time to fold up the tent, take the bat and ball and go home. White towel is now residing in the middle of the ring.

Shut him down for the year and actually get prepared for the start of next year(unlike this year where they thought they'd sort of ease into the season, started 2-8 and it's been uphill ever since).

The team's overall pitching and performance at home in particular have been underwhelming. The chances of making the wc are remote as there are just too many good teams above them.

I'm usually positive about these things and have been making cracks about the inevitable 25-10 run what with all their talent, but the pitching is just too inconsistent for that to happen this season.

At least they still have that nice shiny trophy from last year, so all is good until they get tired of Cora in 2-3 years, fire him, get someone new and win it all again.

I hate to agree but I have to agree. After they started strong against Yanks and Rays I thought that would be the run to put them back into contention, but now it's pretty late in the season and there's just too much ground to make up against too many good teams.

Fortunately last year was a ton of fun!
