Bryan Price, after using the F-word 77 times and 10 more variants of other vulgarities during a rant to media members, apologized Tuesday for "inappropriate language."
"In my pregame conversation with reporters yesterday, I used wholly inappropriate language to describe the media coverage of our team," Price said in a message posted on the official Twitter account of the Cincinnati Reds. "While I stand by the content of my message, I am sorry for the choice of words."
The manager's rant focused on recently published roster information and how it -- in his view -- could be beneficial to opponents, lashed out in front of a group of 10 media members Monday.
Price's blowup was out of character. The second-year manager is known for being gracious and respectful with reporters, and rarely swears in their presence.
