Deadspin: David Ortiz Pissed Off the Rays Again

David Ortiz’s three-run home run would be all the Red Sox needed in yesterday’s 3-2 win over Tampa. But he couldn’t have known that at the time—it was the third inning—yet Ortiz flipped his bat like he had just won a game, setting off yet another war of words with the Rays.

“I don’t know what makes him think that he can showboat the way he does, and then nobody retaliates,” said Rays pitcher Chris Archer. . . “Whatever, dude,” Ortiz said. “There’s always going to be comments out there. He’s not the right guy to be saying that, I think. He’s got two days in the league, and to be ######## and complaining about stuff like that.”

The Rays are a truly dislikable, whining bunch of twits. All credit to their front office, but what a bunch of tosspots.
