    Re: Ortiz shut down.

    I had a feeling it was going to turn out to be in issue with inflamation since I had a similar experience.

    This makes me once again question the competence of the Red Sox conditioning and training people. Perhaps they need a few lessons from my personal trainer. She certainly knows how to deal with this type of thing.

    and this is why you dont build your offense around a mid thirties DH who is getting to the end of his career who is coming off a significant injury, but hey we dont need justin upton. not at all when we have ortiz hitting clean up. Now the only thing he will be hitting is the DL.

    At least he doesn't have to go through the motions of quitting on the team this year.

    our team is built around him?? i thought it was built around our future crop of prospects and our existing premium talent (Pedey, buch, Lester)

    Re: Ortiz shut down.

    we only have 1 potential middle of the order bat in boegarts in th minors, so banking on him and middlebrooks to be our future 3/4 hitters is awefully risky. Justin upton made all the sense in the world and yet we didnt even try to get him. He filled 3 needs at once, and is young to boot. There was no reason for the sox to not go after him, we are not a small market team who strives to develop a team full of prospects. We need proven players to go with the guys we develop. The sox fo has been incompetent for years and even with theo gone is still making mistakes left, right and center.

    It is amazing that the Sox gave Papi this 2 yr deal knowing the seriousness of this injury!!!

    STUNNING!  I hope the PR was worth the $26 million???

    Oh!  They didn't know you say?  How could they know, you ask?

    If they didn't, SHAME ON THEM!!!!

    Justin Upton had a "no trade clause" to Boston in his contract and has since said he wouldn't have waived it to come here, but don't let those pesky facts get in the way.  I can't believe the front office didn't trade for Mike Trout and Giancarlo Stanton to be the 3/4 hitters, either...

    Update:

    Ortiz shut down for 5-7 days

    Sunday, March 10, 2013 -- Mark J Murphy

    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — John Farrell said today that David Ortiz will be shut down for 5-7 days after an MRI revealed that he has inflammation in both heels.

    Farrell, speaking after the Sox game against the Tampa Bay Rays here, said that the inflammation is unrelated to the Achilles injury from which Ortiz has been rehabbing. Nevertheless, the setback likely means that Ortiz will not be ready by Opening Day.

    Ortiz, who is feeling the pain most acutely in his right heel, will be re-evaluated in a week or so. It's important to note that the 5-7 days are just a starting point; he could easily be out longer.

    "We got the MRI results back," Farrell said. "It does reveal some inflammation in the bony area of the heel. He's dealing with that. That's where the discomfort is being felt. As a result, we're going to shut him down for a few days here to let that quiet down completely before we start to initiate any kind of baseball activities after that."

    While Ortiz has some inflammation in both heels, he's mainly dealing with problems in the right heel, Farrell said.

    "We feel like progress is being in made," Farrell said. "There's no doubt about that. But he's dealing with an issue that we've got to give it time to clear up."

    As for Ortiz's potential readiness on Opening Day, Farrell is a realist.

    "I mean, we're three weeks away," he said. "He's going to need at-bats. While we're not foregoing Opening Day right now, we're starting to get into an area where, depending on how many days we need to shut him down, that's going to have a direct bearing on where we are coming opening day."

    How come his ankle was fine before the two year contract? Time to let him go...This will be a season long.... How is big Papi doing.. how is his ankle......Will he play today ??? All a big show for another money hungry ball player.  I would release him now and then see how his ankle feels.... Ortiz thinks he's owed millions and is now collecting....The big waste.... Get back on the millshake and play ball.... Then again we owe him.... He will tell you that. Dump him and shove his ankle up his slow fat AZZ.What a way to exit......Thanks fat sloppy

    he was signed as a pr move...the one lone link to the 2004 Glory year....the time to let him walk wasnt last off season, it was the year or two before when we had Vmart/Beltre who couldve easily done his job....

     

    i hope some of you apologists will have the courage to apologize to Bill for for his 100% correct call on papi..

    Or shucks Gerome,  I think that you are expecting too much from some of these  T-BALLERS ........  Their behavior today reached an all time LOW lib/left/rad/soc/moonbat state........  Never letting the FACTS as they were laid out make any difference at all.   Howevaa, being the strong person that my DAD made me, I will rise above and continue to call my Red Sox as I see them....  I still have hope that they will win it all this year !!!!

    My guess is that his heels were fine when the contract was signed because he wasn't exerting himself physically. I am willing to bet more than ever that he didn't do any serious rehab during the off season. If he had..then this issue would have come to surface before he reported to spring training. It is the nature of the beast so to speak.

    I stil think we'll see Ortiz..just not for a few weeks.

     Of course..the other side is..it's just some pockets of inflammation. Sure it's giving him  some discomfort..but if he were motivated..maybe he'd play through the pain...

    I'll apologize to the board clown when you admit Bobby Valentine was the worst manager in Red Sox history. :-)

    All teams have injuries. All fans decry them.  Sox fans are unique in that we blame the injured athlete. Ortiz suffered a legitimate injury. It takes time to heal , sometimes more time than we like.  Patience is a virtue . Don't overreact to everything.  Ortiz has a special place in Red Sox history.  He should not be denigrated
