Price rips umpire on Twitter after game

Rays ace David Price has never been known as a hot-headed
hurler. But all that changed Sunday after he faced the White
Sox.

The defending AL Cy Young winner pitched well, allowing three
earned runs and striking out nine in seven innings


to earn his first win of the season
, 8-3 in
Chicago. But despite the sparkling outing, Price was none too
pleased with home plate umpire Tom Hallion after the veteran ump
tossed Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson for arguing from the
bench.

We don’t know what Hallion might have said, but we sure
know what Price is insinuating in this next doozy.

Ouch. Price might be hearing from the commissioner’s
office after that last one. But then the war of words really heated
up.

Later, Marc Topkin, the Tampa Bay Times’ Rays beat writer,
confirmed the smack talk by Hallion.

Well, Price was not about to be called a liar. So he brought his
dad into the tift.

Rays pitcher Matt Moore also joined the debate. Guess which side
he took?

Then, the man at the center of the actual ejection controversy
chimed in (get ready for more, Hallion).

But in the end, the breaking point for Price was being called a
liar. Though, ironically, that might be the same reason he gets
fined for this whole episode.
