Chris Archer didn’t have kind things to say about David Ortiz after the slugger flipped his bat and took his time after hitting a massive three-run homer in the Boston Red Sox’s 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

“He feels like he’s bigger than the game,” Archer said.

Big Papi had a big response for the Rays pitcher, and it will definitely add fuel to the fire of the Red Sox-Rays rivalry.

“Whatever, dude. There’s always going to be comments out there,” Ortiz said. “He’s not the right guy to be saying that, I don’t think. He’s got two days in the league, (shouldn’t) be (expletive) and complaining about (expletive) like that.”


In case you were wondering, the next time these teams play will be a four-game series starting August 29 at Tropicana Field.
