Chris Archer not a fan of David Ortiz admiring his home run
David Ortiz homered Sunday and stood in the box for a second afterward. Rays pitcher Chris Archer said Ortiz "feels the show is all about him."
David Ortiz's three-run homer would be enough for the Red Sox to break the Rays' nine-game winning streak Sunday, 3-2. Here it is, and pay particular attention to Ortiz's actions after the bat met the ball.
That didn't sit well with Rays pitcher Chris Archer, who offered up some sharp words 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

Boom, shots fired.
Perhaps the best comeback would've been something like "you're in last place, David."
UPDATE: We have an Ortiz reply:
Ortiz: "Players today are too sensitive. I'll leave it at that."— Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) July 27, 2014
Actually, I tend to agree. If you don't like it, don't give up a bomb.
Also, this video has been making the rounds on Twitter -- Archer with a pretty big celebration against the Red Sox:
