In response to jackbu's comment:
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.
This thread and post was brought up to the top from last November. Did it take you a long time to find it? What was your motive? I hope that Papi recovers and is able to have a productive season. How about you?
I don't start many threads so this stayed on my home page. I don't go looking for old threads, despite what you may think and another may tell you.
There is really no motive except to write a few lines about someone who I feel should not have been signed this off season.
Sure I hope he recovers but I doubt he has a good season. I had a nice weekend watch the sox and lester. The money spent on Ortiz should have been spent on other young players.
