The only thing that could make Price's All-Star experience better would be for the Reds to catch fire and be in the thick of the National League Central race by the time the All-Star break rolls around.
"From a personal standpoint, it's neat. It would be really nice if our ballclub was playing really well and a lot more in the race than we are at this point in time," Price said. "So that people are not only excited about the All-Star Game, but excited about the Reds as well. That would be a really nice combination."
