    Ortiz to the Yankees... it would make my day.

    Boomer Scott went,

    Tiant went,

    even Butch Hobson....

    then Boggs

    followed by the legendary Roger Clemens....

    and lastly Johnny D.

     

    The Yankees of yesterday would be dumb enough to log-jam their DH spot and over-pay for an aging injury-prone slugger who is already 5 years removed from his prime. Sadly the Yankees of today might not be that dumb.

    As a fan I would love to see Ortiz ride off into the sunset with pinstripes. It would further endorse my opinion that he only cares for himself.

    Big Papi make my day.

    The Yankees could try to do it, but they know that it is too risky do it especially they all do not know how well Jeter will be for this coming season as well A-Rod may not have much time to play at 3B.  

    If the Yankees do get him, then Boston is more likely to go after hard at Napoli!!

    I wouldn't be surprised if this happens. Although, the Yankees, like many other organizations in MLB, have several players on their roster that can DH.  Ortiz may get offers from other teams in addition to the Yankees.

    those last three all helped ny win rings

    it's silly to suggest the sox would be better off

    minus ortiz and adding him to nyy

     



    baseball negotiations can be like making sausage

    it's ugly and grimy and you'll like it better if you don't watch too closely

    I don't see meeting ortizs demands as a problem for other teams

    it's giving up the draft choice that should save the sox from losing him


    I don't think the Red Sox would be better off without Ortiz, but it is a definite possibility that he does sign somewhere else.  I still want to see him end his career with the Red Sox.

    Free agency does not surprise me anymore.

    After the 1996 season, Roger Clemens went to Toronto (of all clubs).  

    If Ortiz does go to the Yankees then so be it.

    Actually, if Ortiz did go to the Yankees he might be able to chase the all-time single season HR crown, currently being misrepresented by one Barry Bonds.

    Ortiz as the DH in Yankee Stadium, with that short right field porch and wind gusts that consistently blow out to right field would be a great spot for him...look what it did for Granderson and Cano and let's not forget the power slugging Raul Ibanez.

    Ortiz would be smart to sign there...although I think Cashman has enough DH's on his team now that he'll have to pass...unless someone decides they want Arod and do the Yanks a huge, huge favor and take him off their hands.

    Only a bonehead would declare that he thinks Ortiz only cares for himself.  He is one of he last players I would put in that category.  You wonder why some of these guys even pay attention to baseball, they don't know crap about it.

    Doubt Ortiz will go anywhere. He wants to remain in Boston as much, if not more, than the FO does, as the face of the franchise. When push comes to shove, both sides will do what it takes to get it done.

    I think they will too J-Bay...theres definitly a market out there for him though. Baltimore and texas come to mind, as both have a need and can afford it.
