    How many farewell gifts do you want to give him?  He just missed almost half the season so he earned over 7 million for doing nothing.

    In response to Yonkersman's comment:

    If Ortiz is not signed by Saturday, the Red Sox are expected to make a qualifying offer of one year and $13.3 million. That would guarantee the Sox receiving a draft pick as compensation if Ortiz signs with another team



    And Ortiz will take it because despite what he will say, no one else is making a better offer, including his good friend Tito or the Yankees.


    Last time I checked Tito is a manager on a rebuilding team not a GM.




    Are you serious?  Are you going to try to make some believe that a manager on Tito's level does not have influence?  If Tito wanted Ortiz on his team, it would be a done deal by now.

    If the Sox and Ortiz cant come to an agreement by today, then a qualifying offer will be made and ortiz will hit the open market. Im sure the Sox would like to have the chance to match any teams offer, but I dont think Papi will be offered more than what the Sox are presumably offering which is in the neighborhood of 2/22...

    Re: 71 games

    According to Mazz and Felger on 98.5, Ortiz gave an interview from his home land.  In the interview, Ortiz says he has not recovered from his achilles strain.  Even though the red sox doctors have cleared ortiz and state he is fine, Ortiz says he is unable to work out or jogg.

    Basically more of the same with Ortiz and next year expect him to be out for a lot of the season..

    And Mazz had achilles surgery four months ago and is back to work and fine..  So he found this story to be quite humorous.

    Since Ortiz became a full-time player in 2004, in 9 seasons he's played at least 145 games 7 times.  Give it a rest.

    The fact is that injuries can happen to any athlete. Ortiz is no exception. That is what was so remarkable about Cal Ripken Jr.  There is no guarantee that anyone will stay healthy for a full season. That is why depth is so important. You need capable backups.

    Jacoby Ellsbury missed more than 71 games two of the last 3 years, so you must be ecstatic he has not been extended...

    I like jacoby but yes, he is injured too much.  It takes too long for him to come back.  If he leaves I won't miss him.

    Re: 71 games

    After listening to comments from David Ortiz this morning, I guess I will have to rename this thread, 71 plus games.

    Seems David is in agreement with us that he will not be starting this opening day. Did anyone catch the number of times he said it was not the achilles?  If david can persuade the front office that the achilles is better and now there is a new problem, he stands to collect another 4 million dollars next season.

    Now that it is painfully obvious the front office made a mistake in signing Ortiz, there is one blogger who can only say that it is not our money so why should we care.  Well I go to games and would like to see a good team on the field.  Throwing money at guys who admit to being 37 but could be 42 and injured half of last season, is not putting the best team on the field.

    At least you didn't call him a clown like you did in the OP :-|

    71 is the number of games which Ortiz missed last season.  I am not sure what the red sox front office is thinking when they offer this clown a two year deal.

    Ortiz will no doubt miss a lot of games next season.  He will no doubt go 2 for 20 many times.  He will also get his hits and homers but they will be once again off bad teams and bad pitchers.

     



    who do you think you are calling Ortiz a clown.

    He had me laughing this morning more then most clowns do, when he kept saying his achilles is fine but now it is a heel problem. Ortiz is already trying to collect another 4 million on next year's salary.

    Then most of Boston is obsessed, because everyone is talking about it.

    When the facts turn against you, reach for a foolish comment like that.

    Here is the real problem on why Ortiz will miss more games do to his "heel" problem.

    If the link does not come up, go to the boston.com and click on Ortiz's golf classic to see his 25 pounds of extra weight around his mid section.

    Re: 71 games

    i dont think papi can be called a clown but he def has had his share of bad moments...the RBI thing was embarrassingly idiotic of him but i was more disappointed by his refusal to call out Manny after he threw that senior citizen down for the tix or when he was suspended for PEDs....and then i realized that he didnt say much then because the PED caught up with him...and he promised to get to the bottom of it and then he never said a word after....that press conference he held to clear things up was pathetic.  It is one thing to be a fan of a player, it's another thing to be a fanatic...case in point, my avatar. Is Clemens a clown? He was a great ballplayer who cheated, lied about, got caught, and has no remorse for what he did. Couldnt the same thing be said about papi?

    "Clown"?  Bad start, Bozo.

    Would you care to give a statistical breakdown of your claim that he got his hits in 2012 off bad teams/players at a higher rate than other batters?  Or are you just another one of the the "I can see with my own eyes" guys that "knows" only what they think they remember?

    I think that is such a stupid assertion I can't be bothered to check very deeply, but a cursory check reveals his 2012 OPS was:

    • 1.571 vs the Yankees
    • 1.274 vs the As
    • 1.300 vs the Tigers
    • 1.144 vs the Rays

    He slaughtered the Nats at 1.400 but only over 12 PAs.  The Orioles owned him (.460) over 42 PAs.  .111 vs the Braves (9 PAs).

    Overall, he had the 2nd highest OPS in the league....some poor splits, some great splits, and, overall....great.

    Can you explain how he got all his hits off poor teams/players?  Probably not, I'll guess.

     

    In the immortal words of Bill, when discussing Josh Beckett's fantastic 2011 season and pressed to explain his negative view of it "I don't remember him winning any big games".  I'm sure you don't, mate, I'm sure you don't.
