As the Cincinnati Reds deal with some issues early on in the 2015 season, manager Bryan Price’s frustration reached a tipping point before Monday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Here is the full audio of the NSFW expletive-laced rant:

Update from Tuesday, April 21

Price has apologized for his language, but not the content of the message.

–End of Update–

The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s C. Trent Rosecrans provided a transcript of the latter half of the rant:

Bryan Price (BP): Well, thank you. I don’t know if that’s what we’re supposed to do. Are we supposed to f****** open up everything here for everybody to know all the f****** time? That’s all I want to know, what your expectations are, because f*** me. If I’ve got f****** to tell these guys, we gotta go out there and they know we don’t have f****** Devin Mesoraco, what f****** benefit is that to me as a manager? And our team to win a f****** game?

C. Trent Rosecrans (CTR): He hasn’t been there for a week-and-a-half

BP: I just want an answer on how we benefit from them knowing that Devin Mesoraco isn’t here.

CTR: I don’t think you do and I don’t know that that’s my job.

BP: Your job is not to sniff out every f****** thing is about the Reds and f****** put it out there for every other f****** guy to hear. It’s not your job. You want me to be candid with you? I’ve been candid with you. I f****** talk to you guys like men, I tell you what the f***’s going on with the team, I tell you how I’m feeling as candidly as I can and then this s***? You’ve got to watch this f****** s***? I’ve got to f****** read that on a f****** Tweet on our own people in here that we don’t have a f****** player? How the f*** does that benefit the Reds? It doesn’t benefit us one f****** bit. God **** we try to go out there and win f****** games and I got to come in here and then you guys f****** blow it all over the f****** place? Who we can play? Who we can’t? I’ll tell you what you want to know, I’m not going to f****** lie to you. I didn’t tell you f****** s***.

CTR: You did not lie to me and I appreciate it.

BPAh, f***. I’m just, I’m f****** p****** up a rope in this f****** business. Because everyone has to know everything all the f****** time. That’s not my f****** obligation, it’s not their obligation. You know why f****** Billy Hamilton didn’t f****** play? The other day? Because his f****** finger’s hurt and he couldn’t hit right-handed comfortably. Right? So that’s something that I need to know and no one else needs to know. No one else needs to f****** know it, and all of a sudden it’s out there. His f****** fingers are sore. It doesn’t benefit us. It wasn’t from you, but it doesn’t benefit us one bit to f****** announce to the f****** other teams that we’re playing to bring in lefties when they need to f****** get Billy out. There’s no benefit. So, I’m f******, to be honest with you, I’m f****** sick of this s***. I’m sick of listening to this f****** s***, I’m sick of f****** the f****** second-guessing b*******, you guys can do whatever the f*** you want, but I’ll tell you this — I’m not going to f****** tell you everything about this f****** club, because you f****** guys are going to out there and sniff it out anyway. I don’t f****** like it one f****** bit. I bend over backwards to be honest and direct with you f****** guys and you stick it right up my f****** a** — and the f****** team’s a**. And I’m sick of it. What do you got? If you don’t got anything, get out and I’ll do this f****** interview with Marty. You don’t have anything? Just get out, please.

According to Rosecrans’ tally, Price used a variation of the F-bomb a total of 77 times during his five-and-a-half-minute speech. Price, according to Rosecrans, was unhappy with the media for reporting certain pieces of information—for various reasons.

On Friday, Rosecrans tweeted that catchers Devin Mesoraco and Tucker Barnhart were on their way to join the team in St. Louis. Price had a problem with that report because it signaled the Reds would be making a roster change, but the manager had yet to tell catcher Kyle Skipworth he was going to be sent down to Triple-A.

Rosecrans also reported Sunday night that Mesoraco, who is currently dealing with a hip injury, was not considered to pinch hit in a key spot in the ninth inning of a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals because the catcher was not at the stadium. Price believed it shouldn’t have been made public that Mesoraco wasn’t at the stadium, since that report would’ve only given the opponent an advantage. (Rosecrans later reported Mesoraco was not at the game due to a family issue.)

Not only is the media getting under the second-year manager’s skin, but Price has to be frustrated watching his team drop seven of its last nine games after starting the season 4-0.
