Teammates hatin on Ortiz?

Postby DudeLaw » Wed May 30, 2007 12:12 am

from rotoworld.com...

David Ortiz (hamstrings) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game, manager Terry Francona said Tuesday night.
His Red Sox teammates are none too happy about the decision to go back to Ortiz. "We don't need Papi," said Kevin Youkilis, who is still obviously upset about being left off the All-Star ballot. "Save him for the playoffs. If we need a big hit, a walkoff, we'll bring him in."
:-B

"We don't need Papi," Youkilis said jokingly. "Save him for the playoffs. If we need a big hit, a walkoff, we'll bring him in."

Looks like Papi's going to pinch hit the rest of the way. I'd drop him in my league, but he's on the "can't cut list." Damn Yahoo!

I was curious about this too. Rotoworld left out the word "jokingly" in its blurb, so the joke didn't come through too well.

What's better- this quote, or Ichiro's philosophical "ignites a fire in the innermost bowels of my soul" quote... :-?

Really?

I read the Rotoworld quote first and I found it pretty obvious that it was a joke, even without the word jokingly.

Do you think any player would ever say that about Papi? And moreso, do you think any athlete in this day of age would ever say something like that to the media if they were being serious?

That quote was taken totally out of context... youkilis was asked about how the team was doing without ortiz, and he made a joke about it because they have been quiet hot the last few games despite ortiz being out.
