Bryan Price lashed out in front of a group of media members on Monday, using the F-word 77 times and 10 more variants of other vulgarities in a five-and-a-half minute rant focused on Cincinnati Reds roster information.
According to a report by the Cincinnati Enquirer, Price was unhappy about recent reports that in his view could be beneficial to opponents.
"I don't get it. It's, you know, look, I don't need you guys to be fans of the Reds," Price said. "I just need to know if there's something we want to keep here, it stays here.
"We don't need to know that Tucker Barnhart's in the f---ing airport when we haven't spoken to Kyle Skipworth," Price said, referring to Reds catchers, one of whom returned to the team last week while the other was demoted to the minors.
"I think we owe that f---ing kid the right to be called and told that he's going to be sent down as opposed to reading that Tucker Barnhart is on his way from Louisville."
Price also was reacting over a report that Devin Mesoraco, out last week with a left hip injury, was unavailable Sunday as a pinch hitter.
"I've got to f---ing read that on a f---ing tweet on our own people in here that we don't have a f---ing player?" Price said. "How the f--- does that benefit the Reds? It doesn't benefit us one f---ing bit."
