Chris Archer threw a little shade at St. Petersburg for not supporting the Rays while he played in Tampa Bay. He backtracked a little saying there are some great fans. Oh and he said there’s some good coffee. But he says “the numbers speak for themselves” when it comes to attendance.
St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman clearly was a little irritated by the comments and responded with this pretty excellent burn: “I love our friend Chris Archer, but his 19 games lost in a season didn’t help attendance.”
Archer saw the tweet and replied…
I disagree w your comments (I'm the mayor, after all) but tongue was placed firmly in cheek. Have a great season.— Rick Kriseman (@Kriseman) February 28, 2019
