Price, Eckersley feuding again after Eck’s comments to Globe

BOSTON — David Price ignited an old feud Wednesday with Red Sox TV analyst Dennis Eckersley after the Hall of Fame pitcher commented about a confrontation between the men in a story by The Boston Globe this week.

But as hard as the company tries, it cannot overcome the flaws in the script, which focuses too much on ghosts and grownups and too little on the children.
