David Price was honored to be randomly drug tested

David Price has been pitching fantastically since coming over to the Blue Jays. He’s so giddy that he didn’t even mind the drug test MLB gave him on Saturday:

One of my favorite things is the low murmur around baseball about how MLB tests guys who are playing well more than they test other guys. I’ve never seen any data to back this up and it’s antithetical to the entire drug testing regime, but I think a lot of people, players included, believe it.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
