Snakes On A Plane? Different Accounts Of Who Clapped

This is starting to take on the appearance of a bad Three Stooges episode—you know, one with Curly Joe DeRita and not Curly Howard. Did Moe applaud at David Price's expletive-laden 'diss' of Hall Of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley? Did Larry clap? Good grief, can't we all get back to baseball? At least two conflicting "eyewitness accounts" of PriceGate have emerged in the last couple of days. One version has players like Dustin Pedroia, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Rick Porcello loudly cheering on Price. Frankly, Pedroia's alleged participation would be very problematic to us. Then, this morning,'s Rob Bradford Tweets the following: "Source who witnessed Price/Eck incident on the plane insists Pedroia wasn't near group involved and not at all involved in player reaction." So, we may need Robert Mueller to add a field of inquiry to his investigation. Clap on! Clap off! Clap on Red Sox, clap on, Red Sox!
