What’s David Price’s worst nightmare? The New York Yankees.
Heading into Sunday’s matchup Price was holding onto a 6.15 career ERA against the New York Yankees. Price’s ERA against the Yanks will only keep increasing after his outing Sunday night. Price now holds a 9.61 ERA at Yankee Stadium since 2016, per Katie Sharp. He allowed seven earned runs on five hits in 2.2 innings pitched. Allowing two bombs to Aaron Judge (389 feet) and Gio Urshela (437 feet), Price just looked hopeless facing the Yankee lineup.

David Price is one of the best things to ever happen to the Yankees. It seems that every time he takes the mound against the Bombers, he lets them walk all over him. Yankee fans seem to enjoy seeing his name on the scorecard as well:

Besides David Price, Chris Sale is also owned by the Yankees. Sale allowed eight earned runs on nine hits through 3.2 innings pitched. The lefty duo combined for 6.1 IP, 18 H, 15 ER, 2 BB, 4 HR this weekend against the Yankees. That’s a total 21.32 ERA, credit to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com.
Heading into Sunday’s matchup, Price is credited to a 3.86 ERA with a 7-4 record. He holds a career 3.28 ERA in 12 years playing. A five-time All-Star and a Cy Young Award winner in 2012, Price has been one the most consistent arms in baseball – just not against the Yankees. Price is 33 years old is signed to a 7-year/ $217,000,00 contract with the Boston Red Sox where he’ll be eligible for free agency following the 2022 season (Spotrac).
David Price has been, is, and will be forever owned by the New York Yankees.
