    You started this thread last October?  Good job in preserving it.

     




     

    I have already said that I don't start many threads and it stays on my home page.  Until Ortiz returns to fenway and produces, this thread is still relevant.  No one is forcing anyone to read it or make a comment.

    I used to keep my homepage open for all to see but two posters started leaving childish messages.

    Re: 71 games

    Here's a little fun with numbers....( or food for thought)..

     

    Ortiz will forfeit 2 million dollars of his 2014 salary if he spends more than 20 days on the DL because of his Achilles. His 20 days will be up 1 week from today.

    The way I see it..this could go several ways...

    1) Ortiz returns to the lineup before Sunday and the Achilles issue goes away once and for all.

    2) Ortiz returns to the lineup..but winds up back on the DL and makes the argument that the inflammation in his heel is not related to his achilles.

    3) Ortiz forfeits the 2 million.

    Anyone care to predict which way this will go??

    hardly. the Gov't is dealing with millions of things to divy up the money on. the sox are just dealing with 25 guys to split it up on. 2Mil is not going to kill this team.

    Two million here , two million there, it adds up. Pretty soon you are talking about real money. Agree that we can certainly use Papi's bat in the middle of the order. Hope it works out.

    I don't know.. I want Papi back too. Two million is a lot of money. How much do you want to pay guys like Drew and Dempster ?  This is how you can get into financial problems.  I am more careful with my money.

    the only time money on the books worries me is when it's locked up for 5, 6, 7 years at a time. Drew, dempster, Papi, SV, ross, gomes and their contracts don't worry me one bit. If the sox need to spend money at some point in the next 2 years then they can go over the luxury tax and not worry about it because the vast sum of cash coming off the books in the next 2 years will put them back under. well under.

    I think you missed my point. I doubt that the team cares about 2 million dollars. My thought was that 2million would mean a lot more to Ortiz.
    I was suggesting that since Ortiz wanted more in terms of money in his contract than he ultimately settled for..he has a bigger interest in getting ( and staying) healthy before Sunday.

    I just think it will be interesting from a money perspective to see how this plays out.

    I agree that I would like to see Ortiz in the lineup contributing....but I have to say that if he's not..I'm glad he forfeits some money.

    well it is not looking good for david. once again he is not playing in pawtucket. he has missed three games since    rounding third base in game two of his joining the team.

    in another game when the pawsox are hitting, ortiz is 0 for 4 for the night.  One double play ball and now a weak fly ball to end the 7th inning.

    I guess Ortiz is ready for fenway.

    o and his average with the pawsox is now .200
