One of David Ortiz's signature bat flips brought David Price's early-season criticism of the Boston slugger back to the forefront Sunday at Tropicana Field. But this time, it was Price's teammate Chris Archer who wasn't happy with Ortiz's actions.

Big Papi blasted the decisive three-run homer off Archer in the third inning of the Red Sox's 3-2 win over the Rays in the series finale between the American League East rivals -- and finished his swing by spinning his lumber back toward the Boston dugout.

"It's pretty much what I do," Ortiz said of the home run.

But after the game, Archer took issue with Ortiz's bat-flip celebration and reiterated Price's comments from earlier in the year -- that Ortiz sometimes acts like he's "bigger than the game of baseball."
