After Tampa Bay's 7-4 loss to the Red Sox Saturday night, Rays starter David Price vented his frustrations to the media, the fans and the twitterverse.

Among Price's targets were the "nerds" in the media.

Price was also critical of David Ortiz. Ortiz hit two home runs off him and Price took exception with Ortiz's "stylin'" ways. Price said said:
"He knows how I’ve pitched him the last year and a half, probably two years. He steps in the bucket and he hits a homer, and he stares at it to see if it’s fair or foul. I’m sure that’s what he’d say. But as soon as he hit it and I saw it, I knew it was fair. Run.”As soon as he hit it and I saw it, I knew it was fair. Run.”

After Sunday's workout, Ortiz said the matter was over. According to Rob Bradford of
“You know, we talked. We straightened things out. I have a lot of respect for David and he does the same for me. I’m not going to make a big deal out of this. I understand his frustration. He’s a good pitcher. He’s a guy that wants to see results every time we go out there. Sometimes things get out of hand. When you don’t see those results, you feel sometimes frustrated about them. But everything’s fine.”

Price returned to Twitter Sunday afternoon hat in hand.

The Rays will look to avoid elimination with a win Monday night. Lose and David Price has all winter to tweet away.
