David Price calls fan ‘idiot’ for taking him in fantasy

Respect among ballplayers is nothing new in baseball, but it’s clear that David Price has a huge amount of it for Miami Marlins’ ace Jose Fernandez.

A fan traded Fernandez for Price in his fantasy league, and decided he would proudly let Price know of his acquisition.

Let’s do a tale of the tape, shall we?

2014 David Price: 3-1, 4.04 ERA, 40K, 4BB, 6HR allowed, 1.093 WHIP

2014 Jose Fernandez: 3-1, 1.99 ERA, 47K, 6BB, 2HR allowed, 0.916 WHIP
