Photo: David Price and Hand Puppet


David Price has benefited greatly from play therapy.

There’s clearly a lot to enjoy about this photo — the fact that a talented major leaguer is wearing a hand puppet, the expression (which seems to say, “I don’t necessarily like you, but I respect the hell out of you”) on said major leaguer’s face, etc.

In this case, I’d like to draw attention to the angle in which Price’s cap is resting on his head — an exact replica, as it turns out, of the manner in which Dickens’ Artful Dodger wore his hat.

This is unfettered, expanding awesomeness. Clearly, it stands on it’s own but Maddon’s comment makes it even more betterer.

From Tampabay.com:
Really not much needs to be said about this photo of Rays ace LHP David Price overly enjoying the DJ Kitty Hand Puppet before taping a promo spot for the July giveaway. Said manager Joe Maddon: “He’s the right guy.”

Don’t forget the fist, which from the angle, looks like it’s about to punch Price somewhere.

He should be doing this on his non-throwing hand. The Rays cannot afford a puppeting injury to their ace.
