David Price doubles down on ‘trash’ Dennis Eckersley criticism

David Price

Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price has a long-running feud with broadcaster Dennis Eckersley that keeps getting dragged to the forefront.

Eckersley and Price infamously had a heated exchange on a team flight in 2017, but never spoke to clear up the incident. In a Boston Globe feature released this week, Eckersley said he “[doesn’t] plan on seeing him, never” and has no intention of apologizing.

Price gave a brief response on Twitter, but really doubled down Wednesday when asked by reporters.

In other words, Price is saying that it’s a good indication of Eckersley’s character that so few teammates were willing to speak on his behalf during a special about his career.

Price went on to defend Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, whose antics Eckersley called “tired” in June.

This feud had largely been relegated to the backburner, and probably will be again in the coming days. The bad blood, however, is still as strong as it always was.
