David Price is the gift that keeps on giving, if dealing with drama queens is your sort of thing. After this ridiculous plane story resurfaced involving Price and Dennis Eckersley, Price seems to have mysteriously hurt his elbow yet again:
Hearing now that David Price's elbow barking again. Would Sox DL him before tonight's start? Plot thickens.

It was first reported by Dan Shaughnessy that Price’s elbow was “barking at him”, whatever that means, I mean he is kind of a b*tch, so it’s not surprising that his body is barking at him.
Then it was reported that he may be scratched from this start tonight:
Red Sox source: Price a 'likely' scratch tonight. Same forearm issue as in spring. Discussions ongoing. @Dan_Shaughnessy first to report.

Now apparently David just felt like going on the DL because he just can’t even anymore.

I literally can’t stand this guy. Nothing would make me happier than the Red Sox dealing him so he can be a problem for some other city. Price hates the city, the team, and the coaches, which is fine because we can’t stand him either. He bring nothing to the table, other than turning in mediocre performances in the middle of summer. Price is nearing the point of being a complete waste of money for the Sox. Before he shelves himself, deal him somewhere and be done with him.
