-- David Price has won this year’s American League Comeback Player of the Year Award, it was announced on Tuesday night.

Price was 16-7 with a 3.58 ERA in 30 starts with the Red Sox this past season and, of course, helped the team win the World Series.

After Price was announced as the award’s winner, the Red Sox poked fun at him on their Twitter account.

“Not only is @DAVIDprice24 the 2018 AL Comeback Player of the Year, but he also set a record for fastest dugout-to-mound time in the history of baseball,” the team tweeted.

Braves reliever Jonny Venters won the NL award.

-- Terrifying Flyers mascot Gritty is making a bid for a huge honor.

Time Magazine tweeted on Tuesday asking people to vote for “Who should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2018?” and Gritty had an idea.

“It me,” the Gritty Twitter account responded, along with a very clever video of Gritty on the Time cover with the letters of “Time” rearranged to say “It Me.”

I think we have our winner.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I mean, he’s a good player. It’s obvious that it helps to have him out on the field. He’s one of our best players. So, of course it helps us when he’s out there." -- Bill Belichick, on Rob Gronkowski
