In Response to Re: Softlaw Open Letter to David Ortiz
[QUOTE]IF the day comes when you can support the team, without creating other negative tangents, I might take you seriously. All I get from you, in the end, is that you are a hate-monger. Even when you SUPPORT something, it is only to knock down something else ....
You nailed it, SinceYaz. I think he may be afraid of being *gasp* a fan. Y'know, one who supports the entire team. One who celebrates the success of every player. One who swallows his pride and gives credit where it is due. Be he's too afraid to join those *horrors* actual fans who go overboard on occasion in celebrating players having a great season. He would never lower himself to their level. His loss.
BTW, I supported Papi through his struggles as well. So much for the lone voice in the wilderness propaganda. It is complete nonsense to paint with a wide brush and claim all Red Sox fans turned against Ortiz. Every time I have attended a game the fans show nothing but love for him. There is much more evidence of undying support for Big Papi than there is for fans turning against him.
I'm sick of his baseless propaganda.

This is the truth I have witnessed, even on the television. There was a time it seemed that folks were almost coming out of the stands to will Papi to get past his injury and reurn to that shining, smiling face that is so well known to David Ortiz.
I am glad that that Tito and the FO stayed with Papi. I am glad that most fans did, too. It IS joyous to see him play and enjoy the game again. What a pleasure it's been in the past and now again!!!
Papi, the once and future King od DHs.
Sutcliffe said the other day, something like this, that because of David Ortiz alone he is OK with the DH rule. Think of what we would have missed if there was no Big Papi! And that was the NATIONAL announcer/color guy.
Folks love Papi everywhere. Except at that one hiphop lawyer's office ...
