The Latest Sports News

David Price pitched solid enough to be in line for the win, but the bullpen could not secure it in the opener.

In this Roundtable Podcast, Sam Sheehan joins Matt Ignal, Lucky's Pipe, Evan Valenti, and Jonathan Levy to break down the Celtics Free Agency options this summer. Follow us on Twitter: @CLNSRoundtable and subscribe to the Boston Celtics Newsfeed!

It's obviously an extremely deep dive given the length of the pod. They also talk at the top about Sam's 15-hour excursion to the EYBL in Los Angeles on Saturday, including seeing Jay-Z in person and some of the best prospects in the class of 2018. Then at the end, they chat about a few guys they think they're higher or lower on than general consensus -- including Jawun Evans, Jordan Bell, Ike Anigbogu, and others.  You can follow Sam at @Sam_Vecenie, and you can follow Cole at @colezwicker.

David Price Just Doesn’t Get It

Written by

There has been a lot wrong with the David Price era in Boston so far. He’s under performed, shown zero accountability and whined about a million different things. I hate it, because he’s become pretty much impossible to defend and I was a Price guy. I was all in on him being awesome but it seems like every week a new story crops up that shows why he will just never work out here.

Last night, in his second rehab start for the Paw Sox, Price got shelled. He gave up six runs on seven hits, although only three were earned, in 3.2 innings of work. Price also walked one and struck out four while throwing 89 pitches in total. He wasn’t getting any help from his defenders behind him, but he also got worked over by a Triple-A lineup. This all comes after his first rehab start where he allowed three runs on five hits in two innings while striking out four and walking one.

I know that Price is essentially in Spring Training as these are his first two games of the year and the results don’t have to be off the charts. It makes sense that he might struggle a bit, but this was also supposed to be Price’s last rehab start before getting called up. Is there anything that tells you he could go pitch in the big leagues in five days and not get rocked? No, there isn’t. 

Regardless, none of this is the biggest problem for me. The problem comes from how Price continues to act. After the game, Price was asked to do some media availability but he left McCoy Stadium abruptly instead. Many people saw Price pull out of the parking lot in his SUV and speed off without speaking to anyone. This is where I have a huge issue with him.

I don’t care that Price struggled last night on the mound, that’s fine. But leaving because you don’t want to be asked about it shows how little mental toughness he has. All Price had to do was go say something like “I didn’t pitch well enough tonight, but I’m continuing to work hard to improve everyday” and that would be perfect! He constantly feels like Red Sox fans are out to get him when in reality, we want to see him succeed. If he can’t succeed, we just want him to act in a professional manner. 

Sadly, I don’t think Price will ever figure out how to not do the wrong thing. His relationship with Boston is so far gone at this point and it just shows he wasn’t cut out to play here. If he just took a page out of Chris Sale or Rick Porcello’s book he’d be all right, but that’s just not the type of guy that he is. He’s the type of guy who runs and hides when the going gets tough and I’m done trying to make excuses for him until he changes how he goes about his business.
