Dennis Eckersley on beef with David Price: ‘I’m not going to talk to him’

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley said Saturday he does not plan to meet with Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price about their recent war of words. Eckersley hopes the dispute disappears.

“I thought everything was good. I was doing what I was doing,’’ said Eckersley, a Red Sox TV analyst. “I’m just doing the game, just keep going. I got to stay on track. I’m trying not to get flustered but I’m human.’’

Does he have any intention of speaking with Price?

“No, I’m not going to talk to him,’’ Eckersley said. “I’m just going to keep doing the games.’’

Price has been unhappy with Eckersley's inability to move on from a 2017 incident that involved Price yelling at Eckersley on the team plane.

"He wants to move on, but he continues to go on the radio and do interviews about it," Price said Wednesday. "If you want to move on, move on. We’re two grown men. We can meet. Nothing’s going to happen. I yelled at you. I’m sure everybody in here has been yelled at. It’s unfortunate that it happened. I wanted to tell him that face-to-face. He chose not to show up. That was that."
