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.
