MILWAUKEE (April 21, 2015) – Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price went on a profanity-filled rant during his pregame meeting with media Monday, taking exception with the way his team was being covered.

Price was particularly upset with a writer from the Cincinnati Enquirer, who reported catcher Devin Mesoraco was not available for Sunday’s loss to St. Louis.

Price’s tirade came before the Reds beat the Milwaukee 6-1 Monday night to snap a four-game skid and improve to 6-7 this season. It lasted more than 5 minutes, 30 seconds.

His concern: how media reports on the Reds were giving opponents an advantage.

“I don’t understand what the importance is for everybody to know if we have a player that’s not here,” Price said, according to a transcript posted on “We don’t benefit from the other teams knowing we don’t have a player. It does — you don’t have to be a Reds fan, but it doesn’t help us if our opponents know who is here and who isn’t. That’s what I want to know.”
