If anyone has been watching the Red Sox recently, you have noticed a sad trend toward the death of David Ortiz. He is now officially finished folks and as a Red Sox fan I would like to send him off with some well wishes.
So, please feel free to post any David Ortiz stories here, may God bless his soul. Amen.
the david ortiz highlight of his career to me, as a yankee fan, is when he critized players for using steroids and said they should be out of the league for a yr if tested positive.....then ortiz tests positive, and he has nothing to say. i think da shiz has the links in his sig. classic. won't be missed by yanks fans.
What is it like 6 games into the season. Mark Teixeira is batting .111 which is lower than Ortiz, is his career over. Pretty sure April is always his worst month and last year he hit the most HR after June. I would give it a little bit before you say his career is over.
It's really not Ortiz's fault he is going to lose a starting gig. Lowell has been forcing Tito's hand for quite some time now:
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
That ALCS in 04 was classic. Epic production by David. Clutch, made him Big Poppi.
And just to be clear, I am not talking about Ortiz's fantasy career, which may or may not be over, I am talking about his real life career. His real life career is dead. He is not the same player and has not been for 2 years. .238 avg. .098 with runners in scoring position. Almost a K a game. He is finished my friends.
We need to send David out on top! He deserved it for ending the reign of terror that was the NYY evil empire.
