Rays Tank: Price in the Trop

Framing in the MVP discussion. Yesterday, David Price was back in the Trop, and the Tropicana faithful gave him a warm welcome. Your browser does not support iframes. He said he was going to try not to smile, and I think he mostly succeeded. Good job, David. He also succeeded in pitching a complete game while allowing only one hit and no walks. Ridiculously, that one hit followed an error, and resulted in the only run the Rays needed. Alex Cobb made sure of that. Your browser does not support iframes.

Twitter Talk: On James McCann, Steven Moya, Detroit Tigers' hitting woes and Legos

If you dont want to read, just follow Chris Iott on Twitter and ask him your specific questions there. Golfing with a caddie is awesome. Or at least it sounds like it would be. I've never golfed with one. But the concept is cool. Who wants to lug around their bag or drag it behind them with one of those silly two-wheeled carts? Motorized carts are cool, but only 50 percent of the golfers get to drive them and there's always someone who unstraps your bag so it falls off and lands in the grass when you pull away and then you have to go back and get it and, oh,...

Analysis: David Price at his 'best' vs. ex-teammates, but needs Detroit Tigers' offense to join him

The Tigers recognize that they will go as far as their starting pitching will take them. But as David Price proved Thursday, the Tigers still need to score runs to win games.

No run support sticks David Price with rare complete-game, one-hit loss

David Price’s first trip back to Tampa Bay as a member of the Tigers was historic, all right. Just not sure how memorable it’ll be for him, since his new teammates couldn’t muster any offense to support him. Despite no walks, and not even going to a three-ball count on a hitter — “I want a guy on or out in 3 pitches or less,” he’s said — and retiring 23 straight after the first-inning triple, Price earned his first loss in a Tigers uniform. According to research on BaseballReference.com, Price is the 17th pitcher in baseball’s modern era (and first since Charlie Hough in...
