David Price thought David Ortiz watched his second home run a bit too long

David Ortiz had himself quite a ballgame in Game 2 of the ALDS, hitting two solo home runs off of Rays starter David Price. The first was a no-doubter to right-center that increased the Red Sox lead to 2-0 in the first inning. The second home run came in the bottom of the eighth that extended the Sox lead to 7-4, a drive down the right field line that wrapped around Pesky’s Pole.

Not sure if the ball would stay fair, Ortiz stood at home plate and observed the ball as it took flight, perhaps trying to will it to stay fair. After the game, Price told the media he thought Ortiz gawked at it a bit too long:

It’s tough to see exactly how long Ortiz watched because the TBS feed cut away to follow the flight path of the ball, but he has done much, much worse. And frankly, Ortiz leering at his dinger should be pretty low on the list of Price’s worries following his outing in which he allowed seven runs in seven-plus innings of work.

    Okay so I watched the replay, Ortiz started moving once it cleared the pole. He wasn’t showing up the pitchers. Hey Price if you don’t want to worry about players showing you up just make better pitches. You won’t have to worry about it then.

    May or may not be a HOFer but he does have 2 WS rings. And working on another by pounding your best pitcher.

    When somebody hits his second home run off you in one game, he decides when he runs, not you.

    I love how these pitchers think batters need to bow down and kiss their butts even after home runs, but pitchers can practically do headspins on the mound after striking someone out.

    This guy is becoming my least favorite player in baseball.

    Also did he really list those accomplishments? Wow everyone is impressed bro

    I’ve never understood these “unwritten” rules of baseball.

    Wow didn’t know price was such a p_ssy

    Maybe Price Shouldn’t have celebrated like he won the world series in Cleveland the other night. Funny how it was fine to pump fists and jump into the other members of the Rays rotation on the Indians field but not cool when Big Papi admires a bomb in Boston. Stop B#$%ching and strike him out.

    I like the old-timers: Aaron, Mantle, Dimaggio, Gehrig. When they hit it out, they ran the bases. All in a day’s work. No grandstanding. Today’s players are the p_ssies, wearing their emotions on their sleeves like a woman. It’s womanish to jump up and down and pump your fists and stare at a homerun. Very unmanly. I feel embarrassed for the player who celebrates self over team. It’s an ego thing, and it lacks class. Keep your emotions to yourself, Mr. Narcissist. Hit the ball and run the bases. Don’t stare at the ball or run the bases pumping your fist. How old are you? Ten? It’s just another sign that we’re living in a feminized country.

    Classic players showed emotions and they were great for the game. I give Reggie (admired his homers) Jackson and Pete Rose. They were bigger gate attractions than Hank Aaron and others mentioned. Score a goal in hockey, catch a TD pass, or hit a bomb, show emotion. It’s not showing anyone up. Price was “showed up” by giving up two long homers to Ortiz.

    Devilrays are a bunch of whiners from their radio announcers, their manager and the players.

    Ortiz pulls that crap with 95% of his homers, the fat cheat—-
