The Rays had just one day off between their victory over the Indians in the American League wild-card game on Wednesday and the ALDS opener Friday afternoon, but David Price wasn’t in any big hurry.
Joe Maddon‘s club headed straight to Boston after its 4-0 win in Cleveland (which itself came two days after a victory down in Texas in the wild-card tiebreaker), and Price, who is slated to start Game 2 at Fenway Park, decided to eschew motorized transportation as he navigated around the city on Thursday.
Check out his vehicle of choice in the photo below.

BOSTON — There’s a small consolation price for David Price if the Rays fail to advance beyond the ALDS.
Price enjoys watching the Red Sox.
“The Red Sox are probably one of my favorite teams to watch play, to be honest, just because of the fire that they have,” Price said Friday. “And you can have a ton of fire but it’s a little bit more, and you can tell. You can tell...
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price was very active in the dugout during their AL Wildcard game in Cleveland. He was even helping keep track of the lineup card for his manager, Joe Maddon.
One of the more comical moments during the game was when Price was blowing a bubble that ended up popping and covering his nose and surrounding area.
Price may the fatal mistake of getting too greedy...
The Tampa Bay Rays are expected to trade ace David Price this offseason and many teams are expected to talk to the Rays about a possible trade. One of the more unlikely teams to trade for Price are the Dodgers. Or are they?
Peter Gammons of MLB Network spoke with an assistant GM who thinks the Dodgers could acquire David Price from the Rays in exchange for shortstop Corey Seager...
One down, 10 to go.
Jon Lester continued his recent success, giving the Boston Red Sox 7 2/3 strong innings and earning the first of what Red Sox Nation hopes is many wins this postseason. In beating the Tampa Bay Rays 12-2 in Game 1 of the ALDS, Boston not only showed it has the pitching to combat that of the Rays, but the bats busted out against...
The Boston Red Sox and starting pitcher John Lackey will try to take a 2-0 in their best of five series with the Tampa Bay Rays today. The Red Sox will attempt to defeat Rays pitcher David Price, who's had a lot of success at Fenway Park. Fenway has been almost like a home away from home for Price as he is 6-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 10 starts there. This isn't the first...
It sure sounds like the Texas Rangers will be very active in both the free agent and trade markets this offseason. They may look at trading for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price, signing a corner outfielder or signing a catcher.
The Texas Rangers have been scouting catcher Brian McCann "closely," according to CBS Sports' Danny Knobler. He says that the Rangers will...
David Ortiz put on quite a power show in batting practice at Tropicana Field on Sunday, a day after the Boston slugger homered twice off Tampa Bay ace David Price.
Ortiz hit eight straight shots over the walls during the off-day workout. He had an extra edge - he used an aluminum bat.
Asked why he swung the metal, Big Papi simply said he ''felt like it.''
Major League Baseball schedules 162 games, but sometimes it just takes 163. Behind David Price’s complete game the Tampa Bay Rays topped Texas 5-2 to round out the field for October.

Sorry, Tito. But it just wasn’t meant to be.
Joe Maddon’s Rays toppled Terry Francona’s Indians in the American League wild-card game Wednesday to earn an ALDS date with John Farrell’s Red Sox. The Rays and Red Sox will kick off their ALDS matchup on Friday at Fenway Park, and in some ways, it makes sense that it’s these two teams going to battle rather than Boston and...
The postseason is off to a great start, with both National League Division Series tied at one game apiece. Later today, the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics will attempt to even their respective series. Barroom trivia aficionados may be interested to learn that the postseason has never started with all four series split at one game apiece. There is a roughly 25 percent chance...
The Red Sox and Rays played 19 times this season and will play at least 3 if not 5 more as they match up against each other in the playoffs for the 2nd time. The Rays got the best of the Red Sox in 7 games in the 2008 ALCS. This year the Sox went 12-7 against the Rays but many believe the pitching match-ups favor the Rays who will put out lefties Matt Moore and David Price in...
Yesterday was the equivalent of baseball porn as we had playoff baseball for more than thirteen hours. The first two games were blowouts as the Red Sox blew out the Rays (you cannot just blame Wil Myers) and the Pirates, in impressive fashion, derailed a bit the Cardinals hunt for redbird October (there is not surprisingly a website by that name).
The later two games were much...

11:52 a.m.: Jonny Gomes, of course, was a catalyst in Game 1. Did you expect anything less?
Gomes’ personality and off-the-field contributions have been highlighted all season. But he’s been a part of some special moments on the field, too, and the Red Sox seem to feed off his energy.
“One, he’s a smart baseball player,” John Farrell said of Gomes after Friday’s win...
