Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price on Monday proved he is the most foul-mouthed man in sports as he said different variations of the word 'fuc*' 77 times in just over five minutes while talking to the press.
Prior to the 6-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers, the Reds had lost four straight games, and the tension was more than evident in Price's words.
Irked at a Cincinnati Enquirer story that correctly reported how star player Devin Mesoraco wasn't with the team in the Reds' loss to the Cardinals a day earlier, Price unleashed an incredible tirade, dropping f-bomb after f-bomb.
He said: “I've been as candid as I can f------ be about this team and our players, and we've got to deal with this s---, every f------ team that we f------ play has to know every f------ guy that's here and what they can and can't do? F--- me.
“I don't understand what the importance is for everybody to know if we have a player that's not here. We don't benefit from the other teams knowing we don't have a player.”
After two sentences of civility, Price returned to his rant, saying: “Your job is not to sniff out every f------ thing is about the Reds and f------ put it out there for every other f------ guy to hear. It's not your job...I tell you how I'm feeling as candidly as I can and then this s---? You've got to watch this f------ s---? I've got to f------ read that on a f------ Tweet on our own people in here that we don't have a f------ player?
"Ah, f---. I'm just, I'm f------ p------ up a rope in this f------ business. Because everyone has to know everything all the f------ time. That's not my f------ obligation, it's not their obligation. You know why f------ Billy Hamilton didn't f------ play? The other day? Because his f------ finger's hurt and he couldn't hit right-handed comfortably. Right? So that's something that I need to know and no one else needs to know. No one else needs to f------ know it, and all of a sudden it's out there. His f------ fingers are sore. It doesn't benefit us. It wasn't from you, but it doesn't benefit us one bit to f------ announce to the f------ other teams that we're playing to bring in lefties when they need to f------ get Billy out. There's no benefit. So, I'm f------, to be honest with you, I'm f------ sick of this s---. I'm sick of listening to this f------ s---, I'm sick of f------ the f------ second-guessing b-------, you guys can do whatever the f--- you want, but I'll tell you this — I'm not going to f------ tell you everything about this f------ club, because you f------ guys are going to out there and sniff it out anyway. I don't f------ like it one f------ bit. I bend over backwards to be honest and direct with you f------ guys and you stick it right up my f------ a-- — and the f------ team's a--."
The audio clip of Price's outburst was first uploaded on The Cincinnati Enquirer site but later deleted. However, it has since resurfaced on YouTube:
