Rays GM Explains David Price Trade, Takes A Shot At The Pirates

Tampa Bay Rays general manager Andrew Friedman might have just started a blood war with the Pittsburgh Pirates thanks to a loaded answer to a simple question.

According to Twitter user Mark S., Friedman was asked why he traded ace David Price to another American League team in the Tigers rather than to the Pirates - a reported contender for the former AL Cy Young Award winner's services right up until the deadline:

While the Pirates have won more World Series titles in their history than the Tigers (5 to 4), recent history has been a bit kinder to Detroit in light of their three-straight division titles and ALCS appearances.

Regardless, ouch...

Rays/Pirates. Feel the tension.
