    Big hangup all along was giving David Ortiz a raise. Ortiz settled for a 1-year, $16 million which will equal Mike Napoli's pay in 2015

    The Red Sox and David Ortiz have reached agrement on a one-year extension, tweets ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes.Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports the one-year deal for 2015 is worth $16MM and will be announced tomorrow. FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi tweets the extension may include a club option for 2016, which becomes a vesting player option based on plate appearances.

    This one is in the category of a no brainer.  It was a certainty. Anything else would have been a shock.

    No one deserving more than Ortiz and what he has meant to this organization. Never one to throw $ away, but even if Ortiz weren't able to play physically the last yr of his contract he's earned every dime of it. Great move by ownership!

    the deal also has 2017 club option.  If Papi is still productive, he will play for the Red Sox.

    Exactly. If he is complaining, that must mean he is staying healthy and still mashing the ball, which is good news for the Red Sox...I think everyone could live through the occasional off-the-field gripe if that was the case. But hopefully the option years will keep the big guy happy and settle the contract issue for the remainder of his playing career.

    As it turns out, it's 16mil for 2015, Vesting option for 2016, Team option for 2017.

    The team actually found a way to have it make sense. Ortiz WILL FINISH his career in Boston. I'm calling it now. He won't be playing in 2018 for anyone. I think he'd be 41. Maybe 42.

    Reasonable money for what he does. He gets paid only if he continues to produce, and the team holds the true option.

    Red Sox, as they have ALWAYS done, do right by Ortiz.
