Chris Archer Known To Showboat Despite Criticizing David Ortiz (Video)

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer is quite the hypocrite.

Archer has criticized David Ortiz in recent days for showboating, as the Boston Red Sox slugger capped a three-run home run Sunday with an emphatic bat flip and a slow trot around the bases. But, as history shows, Archer isn’t exactly above showboating. In fact, he’s quite the ham.

In the words of Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Archer did a little hot-dogging and grandstanding against the Red Sox last June after striking out Daniel Nava with the bases loaded in the fourth inning of a game at Tropicana Field.

Come to think of it, the Savage reference is rather appropriate given that Archer kissed his bicep amid his Oscar-worthy performance.
