Worth noting

There was debate in Price's office Friday morning over the merits of the classic movie, "Bull Durham." Price was asked if he could have worked with actor Tim Robbins in having a more believable delivery as Nuke LaLoosh.

"Jeff [Pico] is going to be working with Tim Robbins," Price joked, referring to his pitching coach.

Price was asked if he was ever a technical assistant in a baseball movie.

"I haven't. Back when I was making $18,000 a year, I was looking for one of those assignments. I never had one."
