David Price once again picking fights with Dennis Eckersley for no good reason

David Price once again picking fights with Dennis Eckersley for no good reason

The Red Sox just suffered one of their worst losses of the season, so of course David Price is re-engaging with the lowest moment of his Red Sox career and going after Dennis Eckersley again.

"Huh?" you might ask. But no, it's true. On Tuesday night, WEEI.com's Alex Reimer aggregated a section of a long Boston Globe feature on Eckersley — specifically Eckersley being mortified about the time Price ambushed and insulted him on a 2017 team flight.

"I don't plan on seeing him, never," read the relevant quote.

A couple of hours later, the Red Sox dropped a 10-4 decision to the second-division Blue Jays in Andrew Cashner's Red Sox debut. On Wednesday morning, Price retweeted the story with seven laughing face emojis before responding to a pair of critics.

When another follower reasonably asked why the story was resurfacing, Price responded to that one, too.

Then finally came this cryptic tweet, which could refer to anything:

The Red Sox host the Blue Jays on Wednesday night before Thursday's series finale in a matinee. Price is next scheduled to pitch in Thursday's opener in Tampa.

MLB trade rumors: This NL team had interest in Andrew Cashner before Red Sox deal

MLB trade rumors: This NL team had interest in Andrew Cashner before Red Sox deal

The Boston Red Sox were able to add depth to their rotation with the acquisition of starting pitcher Andrew Cashner, but before completing a trade with the Baltimore Orioles over the weekend, at least one National League team was interested in his services.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday the Philadelphia Phillies were interested in Cashner, but ultimately decided to pass with the non-waiver trade deadline approaching. Here's why:

*The Phillies had interest in right-hander Andrew Cashner before the Orioles traded him to the Red Sox, but backed off in part due to concerns about the pitcher’s makeup.

Several of the Phillies’ acquisitions last season did not mix well in their clubhouse. 

The Phillies might have lucked out in this situation.

Cashner's debut with the Red Sox came Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park, and it was a lackluster performance. The veteran right-hander gave up eight hits, six runs (five earned) with two walks and two strikeouts over five innings. It would be foolish and unfair to call the Cashner trade a failure after just one outing, but he had allowed five earned runs in his previous five starts combined before Tuesday's loss.

The Red Sox lost 10-4 as their disappointing post-All Star break stretch continued.

Boston is three games behind the Cleveland Indians and Oakland Athletics for the second wild-card playoff spot in the American League entering Wednesday's games. It's not an insurmountable gap, but for the defending World Series champions to return to the postseason, the starting pitching must improve quite a bit. Cashner will need to be part of that.

Eduardo Nunez thanks Red Sox fans in heartfelt message>>>
