If you want to help the Red Sox, boo Sweet Caroline

(AP Photo)Bill Foley (@Foles74)Contributing Writer It was refreshing to hear Red Sox fans boo David Ortizfor not running hard down the first-base line Saturday. It probably was a coincidence that Ortiz hit two three-run home runs and an RBI single in his next game, but you’ve got to love the timing of the well-deserved booing and his career high in RBIs. These Red Sox have needed...

It’s time for David Ortiz to assume a platoon role with the Boston Red Sox

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox hit two home runs and picked up seven RBI in Sunday night’s 11-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.  After failing to hit above .237 in any of the first three months of the season, Ortiz is at .303 for the month of July and is hitting .357 (10-for-28) in the past seven days. So it may seem that now might not be the time to once again call for the Red...

David Ortiz Now Just 15 Shy Of 500 Home Runs

(Getty Images)After last night's offensive outburst (two 3-run HRs, 7 RBIs), David Ortiz is now just 15 home runs shy of the 500 mark. Since 2009, only one other player has eclipsed the "half-thousand' plateau—Albert Pujols just last year. Once he hits that milestone, Big Papi could conceivably pass another Red Sox icon—Ted Williams and his 521 HRs. Maybe the booing he got for...

David Ortiz doesn't believe story of Ted Williams' record HR

Every Boston Red Sox fan knows what the red seat signifies. It’s one of the tenets of Fenway Park lore, right up there with Carlton Fisk’s walk-off home run in the 1975 World Series. The one red seat amid a sea of green ones in Fenway’s outfield grandstand is said to mark the longest homer ever hit at the ballpark: a 502-foot shot off the bat of the greatest Red Sox player...

David Ortiz: 'Hell no' I don't want to play more first base

David Ortiz has lined up at first base in two of the last three Boston Red Sox games, and the results have been positive. The Red Sox have won both, and Ortiz has fielded his position without incident. So, does that mean the 39-year-old designated hitter would be up for flashing the leather on a more regular basis? Um, not exactly. “Hell no,” Ortiz told reporters after Wednesday’s...

David Ortiz: 'I'm not washed up, I can guarantee you that'

    This embed is invalid   " /> David Ortiz’s passion isn’t gone. He’s just harnessing his emotions more than usual this season.   Ortiz offered a rather cordial response recently when asked if he’s “washed up” in his 19th major league season (13th with the Boston Red Sox). It was somewhat surprising given that Ortiz typically wears his heart...

What is wrong with David Ortiz?

David Ortiz is hitting — that is, to the extent he has stood in the batters box with a bat and hit a pitched ball and run towards first base. He is hitting, that is, in that he is and has been a hitter in the technical sense of the term. He is not hitting […]
