Chris Archer earns praise for standing up to David Ortiz


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Rays starter Chris Archer has earned the respect of his teammates for his reaction to the showmanship of Red Sox slugger David Ortiz in flipping his bat and taking his time rounding the bases after blasting a home run against the right-hander.

Archer claimed Ortiz feels he's bigger than the game. Ortiz said Archer had no business reacting that way as a player with "two days" in the game. Archer countered by noting that classy Hank Aaron never flipped his bat.

"My initial thought was you're never too youthful to tell the truth and say things how you see them," Archer told the Tampa Tribune.

Archer standing up to Ortiz prompted praise from David Price, who has his own feud going with the Red Sox stud.

"Not only did he earn respect here, but in all of baseball," Price said about Archer. "He said what he needed to say. He said it well. I wish I would've said it as well."
