David Price stratched from Red Sox start tonight, headed for disabled list

The move comes days after a Boston Globe article detailing a confrontation between Price and NESN commentator and former Major League Baseball pitcher Dennis Eckersley.

Price was originally scheduled to start Friday's matchup between the Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park. The team has yet to announce who will replace Price.

That is not what a leader does. Of course, if Price can come back in September, pitch well down the stretch and help lead Boston deep into October, a lot of his supposed sins will be quickly forgotten. A leader would not publicly ambush a media member if they had a problem with the media.

The Red Sox, 56-47, own a half-game edge over their arch rivals, the New York Yankees, in the American League East division with two months remaining in the campaign. A tailspin like we saw in September of 2011.

Forearm troubles that sidelined the Red Sox lefty during spring training have resurfaced, the Boston Globe first reported Friday.

Overall, Price's tenure in Boston has not been what either side imagined.

Unfortunately with these new developments of his elbow flaring up again, he has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, making him untradeable with the trade deadline just four days away.
