Big Papi’s super season
As the team’s most seasoned veteran, David Ortiz stepped it up big time in 2013, ending the season batting .309 with 30 homeruns and 103 RBIs.
Big Papi has really taken flight this post-season, especially in the World Series, winning the series MVP while batting an astounding .688 over the six games. Considering the rest of the team’s post-season hitting woes, Ortiz pretty much carried the offense on his back.
Like Superman, Big Papi has had plenty of heroic moments this season, including his monstrous grand slam in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers as well as a plethora of big hits in the World Series. The Sox’ “Man of Steel” helped to save the day as they finished their series with the Cardinals.
