David Ortiz: Chris Archer Is ‘Not The Right Guy’ To Be Talking

Chris Archer didn’t have kind things to say about David Ortiz after he flipped his bat and took his time when he hit a massive three-run homer in the Boston Red Sox 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. “He feels like he’s bigger than the game,” Archer said.
