David PriceBy C. Trent Rosecrans

A funny story from Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times, who writes Rays pitcher David Price walked out of a charity event Friday only to find a man urinating on his car door. When Price interrupted the man, he pushed and then took a swing at the 6-foot-6 left-hander.

Price said he dodged the punch and avoided any further confrontation.

"I was," Price told Topkin, "relieved with how it turned out."

Those Vanderbilt guys, pretty witty. The only way it would be better is if it happened to Reds pitcher Mike Leake.

Rays' David Price avoids messy situation

Now was it Price saying it would only be better if it happened to Mike Leake? Because that statement is wrong for the writer to say but would be even worse if David Price said it.

I do find it funny the guy was urinating on Price's car door. Price the biggest man child outside of Manny Ramirez getting his car door pissed on, priceless.

Rays' David Price avoids messy situation

Smart move, I was friends with two pro sports players, and many people have no clue how often people screw with them. At least once a month someone in a bar or club wants does something that in most situation would start a fight. That's why it's so important for these guys to have friends that keep them out of trouble instead of pilling on.
