Is Papi the biggest/fastest production downfall in history?

When we look back, could David Ortiz be the fastest (non injury) production downfall in history of MLB. A guy who averaged 39 HR's and 121 RBI from 03' to 08' and being a top 5 feared hitter in the league to a complete flop bench player? I think he's putting Andruw Jones to shame.

Well considering Jones was good for about 9 years, and Papi kinda came out of nowhere for a few years. He does blow A.Jones out of the water.

He was one of the main ones I figured was juicing, I always have thought that and always will. But yea he is a big flop.

Literally. His career was over once he fell down the dugout stairs at the Big A.

My question is...how long do they let him hit in the lineup like this?

Jose Vidro managed to stay on the Mariners until the middle of August last year, but obviously they weren't in contention, and there were no real expectations for him as the DH. The Red Sox arguably need another hitter to compete with New York, and they can't continue to let Ortiz drag their offense down.
