Well, well, well it appears after a forgettable month or so stretch for both David Price and the Boston Red Sox that David Price now is injured and has been placed on the disabled list. If you're unaware of what's been going on with the Sox David Price ripped Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley on the team plane after he said "Yuck" referencing an Eduardo Rodriguez minor league rehab start. Before that he had players sarcastically clap when he (Eck) walked on the plane, then he ripped him. It's been the biggest story in local sports radio. Everybody on earth thinks Price owes Eck an apology except for the people who owe him one the most. Ever since it's been like chicken and beer part 2 in the Red Sox clubhouse as the team continues to struggle 6-8 since the All Star break. John Farrell has done nothing, but make the situation worse.
In what would've been David Price's first start at Fenway since more details about "clapgate" came out he has been scratched from said start, and placed on the 10 day DL with an elbow issue. While I do believe there could be a legit physical issue since that elbow was giving Price issues earlier in the season, which caused him to start the year on the DL. I also think there's a slight chance this could be more of a mental break for the already very mentality soft, David Price. I don't believe this was done to avoid a massive booing tonight, but at the same time, given how the Red Sox work it wouldn't shock me.
As for David Price and all the drama that has been going on all I will say is stop being a fucking pussy. Actually I lied, I have a lot more to say.
David, this team gave you 217 million dollars to be an elite pitcher. Your job is to win baseball games for the Boston Red Sox of the American League Eastern Division in Major League fucking Baseball. Not to talk about your ugly fucking dog Astro, not to hype up your foundation, not to be your friend. Your job is to pitch for the Boston Red Sox. Maybe if you did a good job, and I don't mean, oh look his ERA is a tick under 4.00 good job, I mean a Chris Sale like good job people would like you and care about you off the field. But you haven't, in fact you've done the complete opposite and been a cry baby bitch all year. Wahhh I don't want to talk to the media because they're mean (even though Boston media is a joke now, everybody is on the take from John Henry and being very easy on this group) You're a baseball player, and you used to be a really fucking good one. Don't you have any pride? Don't you want to succeed? How about instead of crying because people were mean you on twitter, you sack the fuck up and pitch like the ace you were supposed to be.
I think the most frustrating part of this team is that they should be so much better than they are. With the talent this roster has they should not be 53-47 and only now 0.5 game up in the division. Chris Sale has been absolutely dominant and could carry this team in October, if they get there. They've been shut out like 9 or 10 times this season. They've lost multiple Chris Sale starts where he absolutely dominated. This is a mentality weak team with a manager who can't fucking manage that can't handle (well deserved) criticism. This team just wants you to cheer no matter what, even when they are scoring 4 runs a week and can't execute a simple bunt.
It's embarrassing, but what's even more embarrassing is no matter how much I hate the players, I still watch and support this team, but as of now I really am rooting for just the laundry, because a lot of the guys wearing it don't deserve to. David Price you're an embarrassment, and if the Sox make the playoffs this year I'm fully expecting you to give up 5+ runs in under 3 innings of work. Now be a man and prove everybody wrong for once in your life.
