    What is not needed is putting Ortiz down.

     

     

     

    Praise Mikey.

     

     

     

    Praise Papi.

     

     

     

    Shut the heck up about how we are "so offended" about a person who has been different than what we wish. 

     

    Papi has played here after 2006 for an incredible $13 to 14 million (rough figures) a season when players of the same value were playing for $10+ million a season more.   Need I say that ARod was being paid ungodly amounts more but here are is a PARTIAL list of position players who got or will get MORE than Papi ....  read it and see if you think he MIGHT just be a BARGAIN (if that is possible)

    Re: BREAKING NEWS,

    Soon as I saw someone crying about Ortiz I knew who posted it. Bill is simply the dumbest human being in regards to baseball and politics. I'm sure if he posted about other subjects they would be worthless as well. I'm wondering if he's not an 11 year old Yankee fan posing as a 100 year old grumpy old man.

    Papi is one of the most underpaid players in our era. Let him speak his mind and then hit 30 homers. He's brought 3 rings to this city who cares what he says.

    Fans like Bill don't deserve to be able to jump on a player like Papi's bandwagon. I'm sure when Papi hit over .600 in the WS Bill was complaining how Papi doesn't steal bases.

    Last question... why do I waste my time with degenerates like Bill? Help me.

    Re: BREAKING NEWS,

    Manny was one of the few players with his type of contract which actually worked out.  Carl Crawford was a bad deal from the beginning. If anything CC is a reason why these types of deals should not be handed out.

    Bill Belicheck runs a tight ship but football players live in fear with the threat of being cut.

    In response to miscricket's comment:

    I am not sure why people are biting Bill's head off here. If Ortiz doesn't want the negative comments then stop feeding the media reason to be negative. I agree with other posters. When people in the media ask him about his contract his answer should be along the lines of "no comment" . That is the only correct response. If David wants to keep acting like a petulant child in front of the media and make completely dumb statements then he and the Ortizers should be prepared for criticism.



    +1



    So you two think statements like "Nothing good ever came out of Mexico" is acceptable? Do you think numerous references to "Dominican milkshakes" and "38 going on 45" are not demonising DR athletes?  Is it great "humor" to make mafia references to Chris Capuano?  Ad infinitum et nauseum.

    If you want to defend Bigot-666, then go to the hilt and defend those three, among many, examples.

    Did Aaron Hernandez live in fear on that tight ship?

    No longer ........   He may be in "tight quarters, but his ship will never sail again" !!!


    Yes Bill, we live in a liberal state until it comes to murder, then everyone is guilty.

    Re: BREAKING NEWS,

    You must be kidding, right?

    Ortiz is only the greatest clutch hitter that EVER wore a RS uniform. Give him all the money he wants and then some. What has this guy not done, in the clutch to help the RS win?
    He is the KEY part of 3 championships and comments like these make me sick, so did Andy Kaufman's stupid article calling for the team to not honor his contract requests.

     

    He's worth $25m/yr DH or no! Who is more clutch or more powerful than this guy when the chips are on the table???

    Of course, 25M/yr. is beyond ridiculous, but I'll assume you were being hyperbolic?

    That said, given the comments of Lucchino, BC, JF, & others with the RS, visa vi Papi's absolute right to push for a contract extension given his HISTORIC production & being the driving force behind the latest WS Title, this debate should be over.  EVERYONE in a position of power with the RS acknowledges the FACT that Papi has good standing with this desire to be given an extension.  Lucchino, in his latest interview with TC seemed unfazed by David's strong push for the extension.  In fact, he affirmed his RIGHT and justification for doing so.  He absolutely defended Papi's push for this, public & behind the scenes.

    I LOVE the fact that Papi is pushing to stay with the Red Sox.  He loves this team, & wants to stay.  How can you not like that in our franchise player?!?  Hase David earned the right to sound off against his detractors?  To sound off against those who question his loyalty?  To sound off against those who would criticize him for simply pushing for a 1 year extension, after PROVING HIS WORTH ten ways to Sunday? 

    Is there some risk in giving him the extension?  Of course!  It's a risk at any age, let alone a guy pushing 40.  Does he keep proving father time wrong?  You bet your arrhhsss!  He's WORTH THE RISK simply based on past production.  He's WORTH THE RISK based on recent production! 

     

    Once again........  It's gonna be so much fun watching Bill-69, Stiffy, & all other bashers EAT THEIR WORDS :)  I love the fact that Billy can be so embarrassed last year by Papi, & still be undeterred in making the same mistake the very next season.  Keep on yapping Billy!!!  You're our #1 good luck charm.  Well.....????   #2, right behind your bestie The Stiff One.  :)
