Dodgers: A Superstitious David Price Still Supporting His Teammates from Afar



The Dodgers picked up some key momentum tonight against the Braves, staying alive to fight another day. These moments for fans and even players become agonizing in a number of senses. You know so much is on the line. With that, the things we do can get a little weird, we’ll say…

We starting thinking about what we ate before the game. Where we sat. How we say. Were we on our phone more or less that game? And, of course, what we wore when the club wins. For the point of this article, that’s where we’ll focus.

Dodger starting pitcher David Price opted out of the 2020 season, citing health concerns for his family which is absolutely understandable. While a bulldog type pitcher like DP would be a huge asset for LA in a series like this NLCS, Price is still doing what he can to get his teammates to the next series…

And he has some help.

Yes, Zoe Price is wearing one for the team quite literally. Papa David keeping the momentum rolling with a killer onesie in Dodger blue.

While he’s never officially pitched for the Dodgers, it’s nice to know that Price is still involved and, for all intents and purposes, is a fantastic teammate.

  1. If Price were a real teammate, he would have pitched this year. He left a big hole in the starting rotation. His so-called support is worthless.

    • I don’t know what was going through Price’s mind but it wasn’t commitment to the team. Pollack was dealing with bringing home a baby born 1 lb 6 oz yet he came to play.Sure it cost Price a lot of money, but he must have it.

  2. Price believes in family above all. I think he did the right thing so he can be around his sweet baby girl. Screw you haters.
    We’re on our way without him this year.
    Go Dodgers

    • Other found a way to honor both commitments: Family and Team. You don’t thing baseball has made for a very nice life for him and his family?

    • With literary tact, I will emphasize that the Dodgers should be “on our way without (Price)” AFTER the postseason, too. Come on Dodgers, bring what you’ve brought to the past few elimination games and let’s get this done tonight!!!

  3. Away for his family, understandable but how many other players have Families? Pederson took time off due to family matters and he came back. The players are doing the best they can with family and Baseball. I haven’t heard of any covid problems with the team. If they except Price next year he better show up in more ways than one.

  4. A.J. Pollock had a baby daughter born premature in March weighing 1 pound 6 ounces. He played (and played well I might add).
