    Hockey players aren't dumb; in fact, for the most part, they're the best spoken athletes of the 4 major sports.

    Yes..he probably will be...but at least a Sox uniform might make him a little less ugly.

    Ortiz usually get everything he wants, including a recent extension and MLB changing an error to a hit.  He really does not have room to complain.  When MLB changed the error to a hit, most posters were citing how smart MLB was and how they get things right.

    I guess Torre thinks he is still on Yankees/Steinbrenner's payroll.  Still sticking it to RS when three RS get hit by pitch while one TB player gets a ball thrown behind him.

    We haven't heard the last of this.  MLB had a chance to calm this blaze by imposing at least some penalty on Price but instead decided to hold him blameless - something nobody in baseball who doesn't own a cowbell doesn't believe. 

    Please don't tell me that MLB and the umpires and trying to keep control of the game.  All MLB has managed to do is to throw gasoline on the fire.  

    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    I agree that it's wrong, but this should be over for the Red Sox.  I don't see much point drilling Longoria because we're mad at the umps and MLB.

    How about we pay a NL pitcher to drill Price?

    How long of a suspension do you get for a contract fb to the ribs?

    Re: Workman suspend and fined

    Workman's pitch was absolutely intentional, imo.  Not sure it's deserving of both a fine and a suspension, but whatever.  The overall message being communicated is, plunk the batter and get your money's worth.

    But the pitch to Papi was also clearly intentional, and in fact he was hit in the one spot that a pitcher is supposed to hit a batter.  It was not only intentional, it was a well thrown HBP.  I think Price is a tool, and I think he's an idiot for doing it in Papi's 1st at bat, but that's the game.

    It's the Carp HBP that counted in that game.  Price should've been tossed and fined for throwing "at the head area" of Carp, and this was after Price already received a warning.  That pitch was meant to hurt, and while it's tough to prove intention, the umps should've tossed Price on the spot.  He should be missing some games, too.  

    Look at it this way: If Price had been tossed, Tampa's argument would've been pretty thin at best.  It would've made ESPN highlights, but not as a controversial call.  Just as an example of Price trying to hit a guy.  Even ESPN would've commented that he deserved to be tossed.

    The silver lining is that the Rays suk, and Maddon looks more and more like an idiot with each passing day.  They're going to lose a lot of games.  A lot.  Then we'll see how Maddon's little clubhouse games work with a team twenty games out of first.

    In response to J-BAY's comment:

     to revisit the Ortiz/Price incident and apology, because why not?

     

     Frustrated David Price settles differences with David Ortiz

     


    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — After giving up a pair of home runs to David Ortiz in the Tampa Bay Rays’ Game 2 loss to the Red Sox in the American League Division Series at Fenway Park Saturday night, David Price made his frustration clear.

     

    Not just with the nine hits and seven earned runs the Rays starter gave up over 7⅓ innings, but with Ortiz taking his time getting out of the batter’s box as his eighth-inning homer sailed toward Pesky’s pole.

     

    “He steps in the bucket and hits a homer,” Price said. “And he stares at it to see if it’s fair or foul, I’m sure that’s what he would say. But as soon as he hit it and I saw it, I knew it was fair. Run.”

     

    The hard feelings didn’t last long. As the teams prepared for Game 3 Monday at Tropicana Field, Ortiz said the two were able to speak and clear the air.

     

    “It’s over,” Ortiz said Sunday. “We straightened things out. I have a lot of respect for David and he has the same for me. I’m not going to make a big deal out of this. I understand his frustration.

     

    “He’s a good pitcher. He’s a guy that wants to see results every time we go out there. Sometimes things get out of hand. When you don’t see those results, you feel sometimes frustrated about them. But everything’s fine.”

     

    The Rays were leaning heavily on Price to bounce back after an ugly 12-2 loss in Game 1, but the 28-year-old put up the worst postseason performance of his career.

     


    Afterward, he took to social media to lash out at critics, including TBS analysts Dirk Hayhurst, who pitched for two seasons with the Padres and Blue Jays, and Tom Verducci, a longtime baseball writer for Sports Illustrated.

     

    "Dirk Hayhurst...COULDNT hack it,” Price wrote. “Tom Verducci wasn’t even a water boy in high school...but yet they can still bash a player...SAVE IT NERDS.”

     

    Price’s girlfriend, Tiffany Smith, who earlier in the week had harsh words for Sox fans on Twitter, also got swept up in the social network sparring, tweeting, “Wow he pimped the crap out of that homerun. #KeepItClassyBoston.”

     

    Although he didn’t speak to media Sunday, in the end, Price apologized via Twitter.

     

    “Last night got out of hand and I apologize for the things that I said on here . . . ,” he wrote. “if I offended you I am very sorry for doing so . . . #thatsnotme”

     

    Rays manager Joe Maddon said he tries avoid policing his players’ social media behavior.

     

    "I don’t want to take one isolated incident and try to make more out of than it actually is,” Maddon said. “I have a lot of faith in David. I think David did the right thing after he had done the wrong thing. And I believe in the future you’re going to see better judgment.”

     

     




     

    This is the worst thing about Price's behavior - the fact that he and Ortiz spoke after the ALDS incident and seemingly worked things out. (Has Price ever contradicted that account?) For him to then bean Ortiz almost 8 months later for the same perceived insult is indeed, as Papi said, "acting like a little b***h."

    Price turned that first game against the Rays last Friday into a circus, and the umps and MLB allowed him to. Stupid drama.
