I guess the old and wily Joe Madden had enough of the slow starts of Neilman, Sonnanstine, and now the injury to Kazmir. "That's too many," as Ace Ventura would say. Joe had to finally call up his prized reinforcement of David Price.
Price did not make his scheduled start today in the minors and is set to start on Monday against Fausto Carmona and the Cleveland Indians. It is on the road, but against a slumping offense and shaky starter. If Price can get off to a fast start, he could cruise for an easy win and chalk up some strikeouts.
