David Price Apologizes for Twitter Rant After Getting Shelled By Red Sox in Game 2 of ALDS


Like a lot of us, David Price had some regrets Sunday morning about the decisions he made Saturday night.

The Rays pitcher apologized on Twitter for the angry, self-promoting rant he went on after the Red Sox unloaded on him in Game 2 of the American League Division Series on Saturday. After giving up seven runs in the Red Sox’ 7-4 victory, the left-hander went on social media and listed his many college and professional accomplishments.

No tweet was too small for Price to respond to, and a day later he realized it probably was not the best look for a former Cy Young Award winner. He cooled down and apologized on Twitter.

Whoever might have been “offended” by Price’s tirade probably needs to lighten up a lot and realize that it’s not the end of the world if an athlete gets angry on Twitter, but whatever. Price has to hope Alex Cobb can extend the series in Game 3 on Monday to give him the slightest chance of facing the Red Sox again.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
