When a team is on a losing streak, it’s a major disappointment to fans and management. But some people deal with the frustration better than others. In the case of Reds manager Bryan Price, questions about All-Star catcher Devin Mesoraco’s absence from the game against the Cardinals on Sunday were the straw that broke the camel’s back, setting him off on a diatribe that included no less than 77 f-words and 11 other terms of profanity, Cincinnati.com reports.

Price has said he is sorry…for the profanity, but not for the message.
Price feels that the media could put his team at a disadvantage if they share information too soon. As an example, Price was angry that a story was reported about Mesorasco and Tucker Barnhart being on a flight together to St. Louis, not allowing him the chance to tell Kyle Skipworth about his going back to the minors.
