CAP CANA, Dominican Republic Is David Ortiz, at 38, the new face of baseball?

Today's piece in the Boston Globe raises that question given Ortiz's popularity and his leading the Red Sox to a third World Series title in the last 10 years.

Today is the final day of the David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic. The tournament awards dinner was Saturday night and Alex Rodriguez was in attendance. Several of the players who spent time with Rodriguez said he was confident of victory in his battle with MLB.

Is that good for the Yankees? They would get a third baseman, albeit an aging one with diminished skills. But a year-long suspension of Rodriguez would free up money perhaps better used elsewhere.

Thanks for following along during the Winter Meetings and the Ortiz Classic.
