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.
Had my back after what everyone in dugout heard what the ump said...RT @ rsieber6 : @ davidprice14 what did @ jhell58 do to be ejected?

Someone give me the definition of a coward please
-- David Price (@DAVIDprice14) April 28, 2013 Ouch. Price might be hearing from the commissioner's office after that last one. But then the war of words really heated up....
