Plus, even if Price is a prick, and I’m not saying he is at all, I think the dude has earned the right to tell people to go fuck themselves. He’s taken an endless amount of shit for having subpar performances in the postseason and now he’s shut those people up in back to back starts in a most impressive fashion. If I were him, I’d be telling all those people to blow me. He’s a fierce competitor who, by all accounts, is loved by his teammates. I’m glad to have him on the Red Sox.Up until the point where he actually harms another human being or their livelihood, where he becomes an actual detriment to society (or maybe if he is poisoning the team's chemistry), I don't give a shit about a player's personality. Sure, they can gain some bonus points for being easy to like (Ortiz ascends from demigod to god status, maybe, e.g.). But if a guy glowers and barks at the media/Twitter but also throws 6 shutout against the Astros...the latter completely wipes out the former in my ledger.
