David Price may be going from a sub-.500 team to a World Series contender, but one Tampa Bay news channel believes the All-Star pitcher is getting the short end of the trade.

Shortly before Thursday's MLB trade deadline, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Tampa Bay Rays had traded Price to the Detroit Tigers in a three-team deal. The left-handed pitcher was the team's best player and will undoubtedly help his new club.

The news channel quickly thought better of its tweet (above) and deleted it. Fox 13 Tampa Bay also issued an apology to the city of Detroit:

Detroit's Fox 2 News responded in epic fashion:
