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:

The show — featuring Hayhurst, Verducci, Keith Olbermann, Pedro Martinez and Mark DeRosa — has actually been refreshingly entertaining for a studio analysis program. And their takes on Price’s poor start were far from controversial. Price — a Vanderbilt man — should be able to do better than “SAVE IT NERDS.”

The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.

In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.

The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
