Bob Nightengale warms the heart:

 

And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? I mean, apart from good hitting and defense and winning baseball games and stuff.  How can you not pass up the chance to add best-friendship-infused chemistry to a team?

Meanwhile, Evan Grant sheds a silent tear, having always known that Wells is Young’s best friend, but heartbroken to see it confirmed so publicly.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that starter David Price has been shut down for the remainder of the season during Wednesday’s appearance on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni, and Fauria.

Price, 34, missed nearly a month between August 5-31 with a wrist injury (TFCC cyst). He returned on September 1, but lasted only two innings against the Angels and hasn’t pitched since.

Price ends a disappointing 2019 season with a 4.28 ERA and a 128/32 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings across 22 starts. He’ll enter the fifth year of his seven-year, $217 million contract in 2020. $96 million remains on the deal.
