David Price tweets approval of Chris Sale's deal with Red Sox

David Price tweets approval of Chris Sale's deal with Red Sox

David Price is no longer the only pitcher on the Boston Red Sox that has a $100 million-plus contract. And he couldn't be happier about it.

Shortly after the Red Sox announced that they had signed Chris Sale to a lucrative extension, David Price took to Twitter to express his approval of the move.

It's not surprising that Price is happy to retain Sale. The presence of Sale has taken some of the pressure off of Price as the ace. And with Sale and Rick Porcello set to be free agents next offseason, retaining Sale now at least ensures that Price will be paired with another top of the rotation starter for the foreseeable future. 

In two seasons with the Red Sox, Sale has posted phenomenal regular season numbers, logging a ridiculous 545 strikeouts while posting a 29-12 record. His ERA of 2.59 is also stellar and he has finished in the top five for Cy Young voting in each season.

Sale and Price both pitched well in the 2018 postseason and helped carry the team to a World Series title. Price will be under contract with Sale for the next four seasons, giving them more time to try and win another title.

MLB Rumors: Red Sox have spoken to former Reds manager Bryan Price for pitching coach opening

MLB Rumors: Red Sox have spoken to former Reds manager Bryan Price for pitching coach opening

As the Red Sox look to fill its pitching coach opening vacated by Dana LeVangie, they appear to be looking into former Reds manager Bryan Price. 

Price replaced Dusty Baker as the Reds manager in 2014 and went 279-387 before he was fired after the start of the 2018 season. 

Before that, Price served as pitching coach for the Mariners from 2001-2006, winning the Pitching Coach of the Year award in 2001. He then joined the Diamondbacks staff at the same position until 2009 and joined as pitching coach for the Reds following the '09 season. 

Price certainly has an accomplished background as a pitching coach, even though his time as manager yielded a few rants directed at reporters and umpires. If he can help right the ship for the Red Sox pitching staff, a crew that probably deserves most of the blame for Boston's demise in 2019, then I'm sure Red Sox fans will be all for it.

Celebrate 15th anniversary of epic Red Sox-Yankees 2004 ALCS Game 7 with this highlight

Celebrate 15th anniversary of epic Red Sox-Yankees 2004 ALCS Game 7 with this highlight

Can you believe it's been 15 years since the Boston Red Sox shocked the world and pulled off the most amazing comeback in Major League Baseball history?

Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of Boston's 10-3 win over the rival New York Yankees in Game 7 of the 2004 American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium.

The Red Sox lost 19-8 to the Yankees in Game 3 of the series at Fenway Park to fall to the brink of an embarrassing elimination. The Sox then defied the odds by winning the next four games to become the first team in MLB postseason history to win a series after trailing 0-3.

Game 7 had several memorable moments/highlights, most notably David Ortiz's two-run homer in the first inning, Johnny Damon's two home runs (including a grand slam) and Derek Lowe's excellent performance as the starting pitcher.

It all led to a huge celebration after the final out:

The Red Sox went on to win the 2004 World Series with a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and thus breaking the "Curse of the Bambino".

The Sox have won four World Series titles since the start of the 2004 season, while the Yankees have only one championship over that span. In fact, the Yankees' Game 6 ALCS loss to the Houston Astros on Saturday night marks New York's fourth consecutive ALCS series loss, which ties an MLB record. The 2010s also are the first decade since the 1910s in which the Yankees failed to reach a World Series.
