David Price seems like a good enough guy — he loves his dog, is willing to dress up in silly costumes and is pretty interactive with fans on Twitter. He just occasionally lets loose a Twitter gaffe, like he did again on Tuesday.

The Tampa Bay Rays ace wanted everyone traveling for Thanksgiving to be careful. OK so far. He warned people about rough conditions. Thanks, David. Then he told ladies to let their men drive. Groaaaaan.

This, of course, earned Price some lectures and tsk-tsks, and deservedly so. While his intent may have been different, you can't really say something like that in 2013 without coming off as a stuck-in-the-dark-ages dude who thinks women need a man for everything. Before this, Price caught fire for a Twitter rant in which he called baseball analysts "nerds."

Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie tweeted this at Price later in the day. Based on what we know about Guthrie's sense of humor, we have to think he's poking fun at Price:

We'll agree that people should be safe behind the wheel, but some people — nudge, nudge — might also need to be more careful when navigating their Twitter app.
