In response to softlaw2's comment:
A-Gon wasn't hitting very many home runs.
Over 2011 and 2012, AGon has over 200 RBI's. Ortiz has 75% of that amount because he's been on the shelf since last summer.
It's about slugging all season and driving in runs. Ortiz is a punch and judy guy, now, which started with his breakdown last summer that caused him to produce 1/2 season production.
It's a pipe dream to think he's going to have 100 RBI's and a high slugging average. Ortiz is a punch and judy guy, now, who offers next to nothing by gettong base.
I just commented, before the fact, that it would be up to Napoli and Middlebrooks to pick-up the slack that is punch and judy aging out, Ortiz.
But.... If he can play the banjo while doing the punch & judy? If so, I say we play him.
Nice to hear you're rooting for Papi though...
Do you have any idea how foolish you sound?
You sound like the spoiled littel tubby kid who's mommy always wiped for him & told him he was the most special boy ever. She always gave you your way, & when the other kids inevitably shunned you, she told you they were jeolous. As were all your teachers, coaches, neighbors, etc.....
Dude! Seriously..... get a grip.
It's ok to be WRONG now and again...... and again...... and again....
