If there's a hot-button issue in baseball, chances are you'll hear David Price weigh in on it.
So, when the topic turned to the theory that MLB's baseballs are "juiced" to fly farther out of ballparks, Price eagerly chimed in.
"Come on, just tell us," Price recently told USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale. "We all see it. Just come clean and say it."
The league says there's been no change in how baseballs are manufactured, but evidence suggests newer balls have shorter seams and less drag, which means longer fly balls.
The on-field results are also hard to ignore: There were 1,144 home runs hit in March/April, the highest one-month total in MLB history. According to MLB Statcast, 50 of those home runs have traveled 441 feet or more.
That Price already has allowed five home runs in six starts -- he gave up just eight long balls in all of 2017 -- surely adds to his frustration with MLB's apparent focus on offense.
"That's all you need to see,'' Price added. "These balls are going 430, 440 feet, and they're running full-sprint, and don't think it's a homer.
"They're not even getting all of it, and they're hitting homers to center field. That should not happen. Period."
