The Rays didn't answer Friday's verbal fireworks very well, on the field anyway.

In the verbal realm though David Price proved a winner. His pregame interview with FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal Saturday included Price saying that David Ortiz thinks he's "bigger than the game" suggesting that is why Ortiz got hit by a pitch in Friday's first at-bat.

Price earned the admiration of former big-league pitcher Mark Mulder, who after seeing the interview tweeted that Price was his new favorite player.
