In response to steven11's comment:
Is someone other than Bill saying there is a negative story regarding Ortiz?
dan roache was just asked how many other red sox have brought their agents to st. Roache thought hard and could only come up with Pedro. Gee pedro, another one who used to sing about no respect and draw the attention from the team to him.
Dan Roche also said:
You know what? He’s right.
David Ortiz is coming off a season where he hit .309 with 30 HRS, 103 RBI, with an OBP of .395, a slugging percentage of .564 and an OPS of .959. He then went out and hit an astounding .688 with an OPS of 1.188!!!!!!
And, did I mention that he put up those numbers at the age of .307.
Now, for those fans who are sick of David talking about his contract….stop listening. Why? Because every time Ortiz does……he still puts up great numbers. Isn’t that all that matters?
Ortiz isn’t asking for a 5 year extension. If he tacks on another year at 15-million how does that hurt the Red Sox. Even if Ortiz was to suddenly stop producing….that two years doesn’t handcuff the team financially for the future.
I’m sure a deal will get done and I’m sure David Ortiz will continue to talk about his contract whenever he’s asked.
Just tune it out and enjoy his hitting.
