    Time for sportball talk. David Price can’t stop being the most unlikable person I’ve ever been forced to root for. And I just can’t do it anymore. Not after finding out the bullshit stunt he pulled on Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersly on the team flight last month:

    Players being sensitive about commentary is not unique to the Red Sox. Friends and wives of ballplayers often relay remarks heard on television. At Fenway, there has been clubhouse disgruntlement about Eckersley’s style for some time. For Price, the tipping point came when he learned Eckersley said “Yuck” when Eduardo Rodriguez’s poor stats were flashed on the NESN screen after a rehab start in Pawtucket June 29.

    On the day of the episode, Price was standing near the middle of the team aircraft, surrounded by fellow players, waiting for Eckersley. When Eckersley approached, on his way to the back of the plane (Sox broadcasters traditionally sit in the rear of the aircraft), a grandstanding Price stood in front of Eckersley and shouted, “Here he is — the greatest pitcher who ever lived! This game is easy for him!’’

    When a stunned Eckersley tried to speak, Price shot back with, “Get the fuck out of here!’’

    Many players applauded.

    Eckersley made his way to the back of the plane as players in the middle of the plane started their card games. In the middle of the short flight, Eckersley got up and walked toward the front where Sox boss Dave Dombrowski was seated. When Eckersley passed through the card-playing section in the middle, Price went at him again, shouting, “Get the fuck out of here!’’

    I can’t root for this team anymore. They’re such a bunch of PC assholes. The other day we wrote about some insane feministo writer of ZERO SIGNIFICANCE, who they basically apologized to for their partnership with WEEI, because they’re so racist. This woman has written blogs about how she’s proud to have herpes, doesn’t shave her legs, and won’t have sex with her husband. And somehow she got a quote from upper management of one of the most valuable franchises in all of sports.

    This is also the same franchise that claims to have banned a fan for life for calling another fan the n word, a day after Adam Jones made up a story about being called the n word repeatedly by a group of fans during a game. Of course they did this for the same reason they told this psycho herpes infested blogger that they were distancing themselves from WEEI – because it’s easier for them to give social justice warriors what they want than it is to stand up for their fans and business partners. And make no doubt about it – this chick said Red Sox fans were inherently racist because they listen to the Kirk and Callahan show. Management took a steamy dump on all of us by siding with her.

    As for David Price, fuck him and everything he stands for. There’s no defending this. Eck has won a Cy Young, MVP, and World Series. Price is 1-8 in postseason starts. He’s like Peyton Manning, except a billion times worse when it counts. He couldn’t hold Eck’s jockstrap.

    But what makes him any even bigger bitch is WHEN he did it. These people work with each other. There’s a million ways he could’ve pulled Eck aside if he had a problem with him and talked to him like a man. Instead he waited for him on the plane when he KNEW his 23 year old teammates would be there, and he intentionally embarrassed and humiliated Ecklersley in front of everyone.

    Ya know why Price did it in front of an audience? Because he has no balls. Negative sack. The same reason he loses every single big game he has ever pitched in. He’s not man enough to have a face to face conversation. So he waited until he had a 20 on 1 situation. Like a bitch. And because he’s the highest paid pitcher in history, in a clubhouse full of talented millenials, they all think he’s cool. They probably have no idea who Eck even is and think he’s in a rock band.

    And how bout Price’s teammates? How the fuck are you gonna let a career LOSER like David Price become the defacto leader in the clubhouse? They APPLAUDED him when he humiliated Eckersley. That’s the real problem right there. A soft clubhouse full of bitches. I cannot root for this team this year. I still love the Red Sox, but I honestly hope they collapse. The though of watching David Price and crew celebrate a World Series makes me wanna puke. Wouldn’t feel right getting behind a bunch of losers like this.

    And where the hell is the almighty Dustin Pedroia? How useless is this guy when it comes to leadership? Earlier this season he completely sold out his teammates when he kissed Manny Machado’s ass two days after Machado cleated him, and threw his teammates under the boss in the process.

    If this team had an actual manager whose head wasn’t directly up his ass, this could’ve been squashed by now. But instead John Farrell hasn’t even reached out to Eck, who is probably the best commenter in Boston sports because of his knowledge of the game and brutal honesty. If Eduardo Rodriguez sucks, then Eck is gonna say so. Because that’s what he’s paid to do. He is not here to defend these overpaid millionaires. Now he can’t do that anymore because the Red Sox are allowing this to happen.

    Ideally the solution would be simple. Round up Kevin Millar, Lou Merloni, Curt Schilling, Jonny Gomes, Zolak, and the ghost of Billy Martin, have them march into the clubhouse, flip over the buffet table, and kick the shit out of Price. Then appoint a leader. And I’ll you who needs to be that new leader right now – Chris Sale. That dude is a winner and a pscyopath. More importantly he is 100% alpha male. And alpha males win titles and lead teams. Kevin Garnett was an alpha male. Tom Brady is an alpha male. David Ortiz was an alpha male. Patrice Bergeron is an alpha male. And so is Chris Sale.

    David Price is not an alpha male. David Price is Regina George. And he’s turned the Red Sox into a bunch of Mean Girls.

      I feel like giving a standing ovation. Well said sir.

    2. Thomas Doubting


      David Ortiz knew exactly who David Price was when he called Price “a little bitch”. I want to to know which Red Sox players applauded Price’s 8 year old girl temper tantrum. Eck is a classy act. Don’t feck with Eck in Boston.

      You lost me as soon as you made this political zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

      Turtleboy you are the absolute best. It is god damn impossible to root for this team this year, for the exact reasons you mentioned. The entirety of their dysfunction can be called back to ownership who has totally lost touch with their fans and fan base. They are a disgrace of the highest order. Turtleboy and K & C all the way, the only ones who are standing up against the madness.

    5. Fed up Sox fan


      The whole red sox organization needs to do a serious ball bag check, immediately. John Henry needs to reach for his balls and if they are still there, round up Dombrowski, Farrell and Sam Kennedy and denounce this transition into the Boston Pink Sox and and get this team under control. Fuck the luxury tax, unload Price to whatever team offers the most in return. Eat part of his salary, I don’t want to hear about the financial implications, we all know the red sox operate with monopoly money over there. Unload Pedroia too, he is a such a bitch. Gather up betts, benintendi and bradley tell them shit is changing and get with the program and learn to be winners, not whiners. And Bogey, tell that prick to stop being lazy and get his head focused and remember how to short stop correctly or ride the pine for the rest of the season. End of rant

        Bear in mind that the “luxury tax” is not a tariff paid to the gov’t; it’s a fee paid into the MLB ins. pool for “overpaying” a player’s salary too high, which goes to the teams that can’t balance their budgets.

      Spot on TB. I knew signing David Price was a bad idea. He played in the AL East for so many years mostly with Tampa Bay and Toronto. I was never impressed with him. He’s too much of a wuss. Skin way way way too thin for big markets like Boston. The millionaire cry baby.

      On Sports Radio they are calling Price poisonous in the club house. And if JBJ Jr. was one of the ones who applauded on that plane (JBJ Jr. had an issue with Eck as well) then fuck him too. He is replaceable as well. If Big Papi was still playing and was on that plane none of this would have gone down.

      Dustin Pedroia – you are an epic letdown in terms of leadership. What the fuck happened to you? You could have been the next Red Sox player to wear a ‘C’ on your jersey since Jason Varitek. I thought that was more then a done deal. Now the only association to ‘C’ with you Dustin is either Coward or C!nt.

      What I don’t get is Eck isn’t even that tough on the Sox. He is a homer, as all color annalists at local markets are. People think he’s some tough ass, but he kisses ass alot of the times. He is a straight shooter, no doubt, but don’t dont confuse being blunt with being hard on the Sox.

      As for Price he doesn’t have the DNA to pitch in a market like Boston. If he re-uped with the Jays he would probably be on pace for 2o wins and a Cy Young. He does’t have it for a city with a harsh media market. Anyway, baseball money isn’t real money to begin with. Without a cap it’s basically Monopoly money

    8. J99


      It will be a cold day in hell before I pay for ANYTHING Red Sox related this year. As long as Price is still there, I’m done with the Sox. Period.

    9. The Great Gambini


      I sent an email to the Boston Red Sox, through the “Contact Us” link. I urge you all to do the same, showing your support for Eck. I totally agree with all your sentiments in this article. Well said and thank you! These guys are emotionally immature, and let’s not forget Jackie “prima donna” Bradley, of whom I’ve also lost respect for setting up Eck with that sly photo. This attitude is indeed pervading through the clubhouse, and I fear that even John Farrell can’t take too much criticism, and is just as thin-skinned, because he’d be stopping this BS right now. Did you see Benintendi and the way he was catching those fly balls in left field last night? He’s so busy chewing his seeds and being too relaxed that he got a late break on one of them. Price is a first class wussy. I never liked him. He could never hold Eck’s water bottle. These current Sox have no respect for what the game was. They’re playing in a time when you can’t block home plate…because the wussies might get hurt. Try telling Munson or Fisk they couldn’t block the plate when they played. And you can take out the 2nd baseman to break up a double play, thanks to Chase Utley. Try telling Ty Cobb that when he played – we would never have had a Ty Cobb, Pete Rose, Jackie Robinson or Eddie Collins.

      The Red Sox still haven’t learned from the “Patriot Way” and Bill Belichick. What would Bill do? Price would be gone. And I wrote the Red Sox they should trade Price NOW while they still can. BUT…the Sox ownership and brass are equal wussies. All they care about is marketing the shit out of the Sox brand first, and fielding a team of REAL men second. Meanwhile on some college campuses across the country, “too much masculinity” is being ridiculed. Yes, Turtle Boy, you nailed it when you spoke of the millennials. Maybe baseball is too masculine a game for Price and his cheering squad. They are all emotionally immature, with their egos stuffed too high up their collective posteriors. At this rate, Baseball will be like wiffle ball in about 20 years.

      1. Chris


        Maybe Bob Kraft should buy the Sox. If I owned the Sox I would discontinue those pink hats. There are plenty of girls who wear the real Boston cap (black cap with red B).

    10. Alan Ela


      Actually, price had not won a post season start. His only post season win is against the Red Sox as a rookie pitching in relief

    11. wabbitt


      I hope Eck tears that candy ass a new one. Piece of shit overpaid pussy isn’t fit to carry Eck’s jockstrap.
