Going forward, David Price should probably be more careful with what he posts to Twitter.
The Tampa Bay Rays' ace found himself in hot water after maligning several baseball writers in an October rant.
And now Price has once again stumbled into the spotlight after posting another insensitive tweet. The 28-year-old Cy Young Award winner meant well with a Thanksgiving-themed message, but he ended up offending women everywhere.
Everyone thats traveling for thanksgiving please be careful! Driving conditions will be rough with these storms! Ladies..let ur man drive!

Predictably, Price has heard from upset followers:
what if I don't have a man pls advise RT @DAVIDprice14: Driving conditions will be rough with these storms! Ladies..let ur man drive!

I was going to go see my parents for Thanksgiving, but I don't have a man to drive me there. I trust David Price will be sending a car.

Price could learn a thing or two from his manager, Joe Maddon, on how to entertain followers without offending them.
