Tampa, Detroit TV stations exchange barbs over Price

BY foxsports • August 1, 2014

DETROIT -- After the Tigers acquired David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, the local Tampa Bay FOX affiliate made a tired joke.

FOX 13 Tampa Bay, via their Twitter account, @MyFoxTampaBay, posted a photo of Detroit ruin porn and a Tampa Bay beach side by side with "GOOD LUCK, DAVID!"

FOX 2 in Detroit, @FOX2News, won the day by tweeting out a photo of the Rays' ballpark, Tropicana Field, with more seats than fans, juxtaposed with a photo of a packed Comerica Park.

FOX 13 Tampa Bay then responded with a Ron Burgundy meme, "Well, that escalated quickly" along with, "We apologize, #Detroit. We wish David the best of luck no matter where he is!"
