David Price

  1. The Dodgers could go after David Price, Masahiro Tanaka

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Must be nice to have money. And, apparently, prospects. Because the Dodgers are prepared — or are at least able — to go after one of the most expensive free agents and the most desirable trade target this offseason, reports Peter Gammons, who spoke with some GMs who speculate that the Dodgers could do both:…

  2. When your* up 2-1 you can dispense with grammar all you’d like

    Yes, that was intentional. In honor of John Lackey who, as Jeff Passan of Yahoo! notes today in the course of his excellent profile, wears an inspirational t-shirt under his jersey: He won the right to walk around the clubhouse saying WE FEAR NOTHING. The back of the T-shirt screamed big, bold words as well,…

  3. David Price expects to be traded this offseason

    David Price has been around Tampa Bay for a while. He knows how they roll. And he too believes that he’ll be on the trading block this winter. Marc Topkin has Price’s comments from Wednesday: “If you go with what’s been done in the past, I guess you’re going to have to think you’re going…

  4. The Rays’ all just wasn’t quite enough

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EST

    Will Middlebrooks, Yunel Escobar

    The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

  5. David Price apologizes for criticizing “nerds” on Twitter

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:32 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    After a poor outing against the Red Sox last night in Game 2 of the ALDS, Rays starter David Price went on Twitter and criticized the TBS postgame show for their analysis, singling out Dirk Hayhurt and Tom Verducci. He also chastised the media around him in the clubhouse, sarcastically retorting, “Sweet questions, nerds.” Dirk…

  6. David Price bashes TBS baseball show

    David Price was lit up for seven earned runs in seven-plus innings Saturday as the Rays allowed the Red Sox to take a 2-0 ALDS lead. Price must have tuned into the TBS postgame show after his outing because this is what he tweeted to his more than 180,000 followers late Saturday night: Dirk Hayhurst…COULDNT…

  7. David Price thought David Ortiz watched his second home run a bit too long

    Oct 5, 2013, 10:04 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    David Ortiz had himself quite a ballgame in Game 2 of the ALDS, hitting two solo home runs off of Rays starter David Price. The first was a no-doubter to right-center that increased the Red Sox lead to 2-0 in the first inning. The second home run came in the bottom of the eighth that…

  8. Red Sox left-handed hitters were the key to overcoming David Price

    Oct 5, 2013, 9:03 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    During the regular season, Rays left-handed starter David Price was murder on left-handed hitters, holding them to a .489 OPS, the sixth-best OPS allowed to lefties among qualified starters. (The others: Chris Sale, Matt Harvey, Clayton Kershaw, C.J. Wilson, and Madison Bumgarner.) You wouldn’t have known it if you watched the left-handed side of the…

  9. Behind David Ortiz’s two-homer night, Red Sox take a 2-0 lead in the ALDS

    Oct 5, 2013, 8:52 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Red Sox will head down to Tampa Bay happy campers. After a thorough 12-2 dismantling of the Rays in Game 1, the Sox scored seven runs against 2012 AL Cy Young award winner David Price in seven-plus innings, just enough run support for John Lackey. The scoring started early, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off…

  10. Red Sox continue moving the goalposts against the Rays

    Oct 5, 2013, 7:47 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    To their credit, the Rays have remained competitive throughout Game 2 against the Red Sox despite starter David Price looking not-so-sharp as well as some defensive miscues by the Tampa Bay defense. After the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first, the Rays scratched back for a run in the second on a…

  11. Red Sox continue attacking, tag David Price for two more runs

    Oct 5, 2013, 6:44 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Rays managed to get one of the runs back after starter David Price surrendered two in the first inning to the Red Sox. However, the Sox offense has proven to be relentless, adding an additional two runs in the third inning. Leading off the frame, David Ross hit a high fly ball off of…

  12. Legs of Ellsbury, bat of Ortiz put Red Sox ahead early in ALDS Game 2

    Oct 5, 2013, 6:03 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    David Price may have pitched the Rays past a treacherous Game 163 to get into the Wild Card playoff, but the Red Sox clearly aren’t impressed. The Rays’ lefty, who led the league with a 5.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio and four complete games, was tagged for two runs in the first inning due to two of…

    Behind a solid start from Jon Lester and a whole lot of offense, the Red Sox blew out the Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS yesterday by the score of 12-2. The two teams will meet again today at Fenway Park at 5:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on TBS. Here’s a…

  15. Are there any holes to be punched in these Red Sox?

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:31 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    With the ability to start David Price twice and Alex Cobb once in the next four games, the Rays aren’t sunk after dropping Game 1 to Boston on Friday. The Red Sox, though, seemed pretty unbeatable today with the offense in sync despite four days off and Jon Lester limiting the damage besides a couple…

  16. Youthful Rays appear rattled in Game 1 rout

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:57 PM EST

    Matt Moore

    Technically, the Rays went errorless in Friday’s 12-2 loss to the Red Sox. Which just further demonstrates how silly judging things based on errors can be. After three innings without allowing a hit, Matt Moore gave up a Dustin Pedroia single to start the fourth with the Rays up 2-0. David Ortiz followed with a…

  17. Red Sox rout Rays to take 1-0 lead in ALDS

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:54 PM EST

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game One

  18. Rays pick Matt Moore for Game 1 start vs. Red Sox

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    matt moore square getty

    David Price pitched a complete game Monday and Alex Cobb threw 6.2 shutout innings Wednesday, so the Rays will turn to left-hander Matt Moore to start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Red Sox. Moore will be followed in the ALDS rotation by Price, who’ll be working on full rest in Game 2, with…

  19. Just another shutout for Alex Cobb and the Rays

    Oct 3, 2013, 12:40 AM EST

    Alex Cobb

    The Rays (17) and the Indians (16) were the only American League teams to throw 15 shutouts this season, so it’s fitting that the wild card turned into another one. Pitching himself into and out of trouble, Alex Cobb scattered eight hits in 6 2/3 innings before leaving with a 3-0 lead. Joel Peralta, Jake…

  20. Rangers have no answer for the Rays’ stars

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:47 PM EST

    Evan Longoria

    The simple fact is that things lined up better for the Rays than they did for the Rangers in Monday’s one-game playoff. With no maneuvering necessary, the Rays had their 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, David Price, ready to the take the mound. The Rangers, having used Yu Darvish on Sunday, were forced to…

    David Price Getty

    Game 163 is in the books and the Rays are still alive. David Price went the distance in tonight’s tiebreaker game against the Rangers to secure a 5-2 victory. The Rays will advance to the AL Wild Card game on Wednesday against the Indians in Cleveland. Price hurled 118 pitches in the complete game victory.…

  22. Rays add insurance run thanks to errant throw, last licks for Rangers

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:14 PM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays v Texas Rangers

    The Rays were denied an insurance run due to a blown call in the seventh inning, but they got one in the ninth inning thanks to a wild throw from catcher A.J. Pierzynski. After Sam Fuld led off the top of the ninth inning with a single against Tanner Scheppers, he moved over to second…

  23. Alex Rios cuts Rays’ lead to 4-2 with RBI double

    Sep 30, 2013, 10:16 PM EST

    Alex Rios AP

    The Rays added a run in the top of the sixth inning with an RBI double by David DeJesus, but the Rangers fought right back in the bottom-half of the frame. After Elvis Andrus reached on a one-out single and stole second base, Alex Rios delivered a double off the left field wall to cut…

  24. The Rangers are on the board against the Rays in Game 163

    Sep 30, 2013, 9:20 PM EST

    Ian Kinsler

    The Rays extended their lead to 3-0 lead on the strength of a two-run homer by Evan Longoria in the top of the third inning, but Rangers are beginning to chip away. Craig Gentry led off the bottom of the third inning with a single and moved over to second base on a ground out…

    Rays vs. Rangers for the right to play on. Here are the lineups: RANGERS 2B Ian Kinsler SS Elvis Andrus RF Alex Rios 3B Adrian Beltre C A.J. Pierzynski DH Nelson Cruz 1B Mitch Moreland LF Craig Gentry CF Leonys Martin P Martin Perez Cruz in the lineup will cause some moralists to get the vapors, but maybe they can fan themselves with the CBA…
