I guess his doctors said that would happen on occasion but it was normal.

I think its the mental aspect of it that we need to be concerned with. Papi has said himself that he worries about re-injuring the wrist.

yeah... i'm really starting to wonder if he's going to produce for the next two months... Ortiz has to convince himself he's healthy, or at least healthy enough to compete... he was tearing up the minors and the first games he was back... hopefully he'll show up this weekend and show some power... he looked damn good when he first came back, perhaps there's been a physical relapse, but it really sounds like Ortiz is a little screwed up right now and needs to convince himself he can be an elite athlete

the problem is shopping him right now will be selling him low (unless he truly breaks down)... I think us Ortiz owners have to grit our teeth and hope his recent struggles are just normal slumps and nothing more...

Nice game tonight for Papi. Hopefully this is a sing of things to come. I think this is exactly what he needed, especially that three run double off a lefty. Two more feet and that's a grand slam ;-D

looks like? it already is... regardless of what he does the rest of the way, he's been a big let down this year, if he continues to struggle this year or, god help me, goes back on the dl for good... where in the heck is he drafted next year? I drafted him in the second round this year and thought I had a bargain, i have NO idea where i'd draft him next year... too many mental and physical issues right now with him, lost his 1b eligibility, another year older... I love the man but I don't think i'll ever have him on my team again (though i'll still root for him as a sox fan. ;-D )


eh not really. if your team is still in contention, the playoffs are the only thing that matters. papi could really help your team in hrs, rbi, runs, and avg (or ops) down the line.



(yea yea, i know roto leagues. but they suck anyway)
