Drew Smyly asks David Price to leave him some sneakers

BY Jimmy Traina • August 1, 2014

One of the best things about Twitter is that it shows fans the human side of athletes.

It also allows fans to see how athletes interact with one another.

There was a very amusing case of this on Friday when pitchers David Price and Drew Smyly, who were traded for each other on Thursday, exchanged tweets.

Smyly, who now joins Tampa's rotation, figured that Price may have a problem getting all of his sneakers out of his locker and shipped to Detroit.

Shrewd move by Smyly, who clearly knew Price has kicks to spare. Actually, this is evident to anyone who checks Price's Instagram page.

Price later responded to Smyly and admitted he's having some issues.
