Price makes it to Toronto, with help from a friend
LHP David Price made it to Toronto by Thursday afternoon, having figured out a slightly more creative and less taxing solution to getting his passport, which he left at home in Tampa.
Price was to fly back to Tampa early this morning then head right back on a flight to Toronto. But as he headed to spend the night at a Dallas/Fort Worth airport hotel, he came up with a better plan. He had a friend from Tampa, Tim Herbert, who was planning to come to Toronto for the weekend anyway instead fly to Dallas with Price's passport, and they flew from there to Toronto together.
That was better, Price said, thought it created another problem: "I've worn the same clothes for two straight days.''
Price was to throw his usual between starts bullpen at some point on Thursday.
