Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price is under a lot of pressure.
Prior to Monday’s match-up against the Milwaukee Brewers, his 6-7 squad had lost four straight games, but Price felt at least one of those losses was not his team’s fault.
Over the weekend, a Cincinnati reporter published an article that stated catcher Devin Mesoraco would not be available for Sunday’s game against St. Louis, and Price blamed this “intelligence leak” — a reporter doing his job — for the Reds’ eventual 2-1 loss.
By Monday, Price’s anger with Trent Rosencrans — the reporter in question — had not subsided, and he took advantage of Monday’s pre-game presser to tell him that he was “fucking sick of all this fucking bullshit.”
Price’s tirade must have ignited something within the Reds. They went on to beat the Brewers, 6-1, Monday night.
UPDATE: Price released the following apology via the team’s Twitter:
