    Price and Archer vs Ortiz

    Do not look now but yet another Ray's pitcher is crying about the so call bat flip... All I saw was Ortiz tossing the bat towards the bench...


    Also, Archer was caught on camera kissing his biceps when he struck on Nava not too long ago... Is that not showboating? 


    So much for not crying in baseball!!!

    [object HTMLDivElement] The showboating is all a part of the modern day athlete.  I think  it started with Muhammad Ali, who has admitted that he stole it from pro wrestler's routines. Professional sports are all a part of the entertainment industry. There is controversy in it. There is money in it. We may or may not like it. Just don't be hypocritical about it. If it is okay for Ortiz, it is okay for others, and vice versa.

    Ortiz on Archer: "Players in today’s game are too sensitive about things … I think he’s a good pitcher; I think he’s got great stuff."

    Once Pete Abraham says anything slightly controversial about Ortiz, it will give tweets like this SOME legitimacy. He defends him when he's bad, defends him when he plays bad, defends him when he acts like an a s s, and trumpets him when he's doing well. It's ok for FANS to act like that, media personnel ought to conduct themselves a little differently.

    And, yes, the pitcher is also a dk.

    Had Ortiz did that playing for Tampa would those losers complain then ?  Sox are pissed about season and frustration is settling in . Tampa needs to shut up or Ortiz bat just might end up someone's AZZ

    Ortiz launched it, watched it, and bat flipped.  Good for him.  Now maybe Archer will talk to Price about not head hunting.  He also barked something into the dugout after the bat flip.

    Would love to see the CHB have the guts to say that to a players face.  But Danny hides behind his tweets and columns, way too afraid to actually go into a locker room.

    Next time he hits one against Archer, he should jump out of batting box, do a fist pump then kiss his bicep -- just like Archer did when he struck out Nava last year with the bases loaded.

    Baseball needs more David Ortiz bat-flips, not fewer
     
    By Peter Abraham
     

    David Ortiz hit a long home run on Sunday against Tampa Bay and flung his bat off to the side and slowly trotted around the bases.
    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Before Bud Selig retires as baseball’s commissioner, he should write a memo and have it posted in every clubhouse announcing that it’s perfectly fine to have some fun on the field.

    David Ortiz hit a long home run on Sunday against Tampa Bay and flung his bat off to the side and slowly trotted around the bases. Ortiz had a home run snatched away by a fan on Saturday, so he enjoyed it seeing the ball fly into the seats

     
    On the Ortiz scale, the celebration was a solid six out of 10. But the Rays reacted like Big Papi spat in their dugout on the way to first base.


    “I hope he realizes there’s more that goes into it than just him,” said Chris Archer, the pitcher who allowed the home run. “I don’t know, I feel like you can’t say that your true character is defined by one action but multiple actions speak to who you are.”

    This would be the same Chris Archer who once struck out Daniel Nava, glared at him, and kissed his right biceps. Talk about contrived anger.

    The larger point is that baseball needs to loosen up. Football, basketball, hockey, and soccer players celebrate their success all the time without fear of physical retribution or character assassination. Why do baseball players have to be so restrained?

    The unwritten rules are senseless. Walk-off home runs can be celebrated like it’s New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas, but a home run in the eighth inning can’t be. Pitchers can pump their fist and jump of the mound after the third out, but not the second. It’s all so sill

     
    Baseball is losing younger fans and putting people to sleep with long games and hitters who need 20 seconds between pitches so they can adjust their batting gloves for the 43d time. Ortiz is a fun player to watch, so let him have fun. Let pitchers point at hitters the way Dennis Eckersley used to. Let an outfielder like Jackie Bradley Jr. high-five a teammate if he makes a great catch.

    Here’s a crazy idea: If Ortiz flipping his bat bothers you that much, strike him out next time then tip your cap to him. Otherwise, keep quiet.
