If the bat flip wasn't enough, the roughly 30-second-long trot around the bases was. David Ortiz's antics following his three-run home run in the third inning of Sunday's 3-2 Boston Red Sox victory over the Tampa Bay Rays upset pitcher Chris Archer, who served up what turned out to be the game-winning blast. Here's what the moment that caused the kerfuffle looked like.
And what was said after the game.
#rays Archer said Ortiz HR trot is "perfect example" of when Price said Ortiz feels he's "bigger than the game."— RMooneyTBO (@RMooneyTBO) July 27, 2014
Ortiz on #Rays Archer: "He’s not the right guy to be saying that, I think. He’s got two days in the league"— RMooneyTBO (@RMooneyTBO) July 27, 2014
Ortiz on Archer: "He’s a good pitcher. He’s got great stuff. He’s a guy that I think is going to be pretty good."— Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) July 27, 2014
Ortiz: "Players today are too sensitive. I'll leave it at that."— Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) July 27, 2014
