Can David Ortiz really be done?

Big Papi makes his 10th All-Star appearance Tuesday night, his first since 2013. He’ll bat cleanup for the American League. While Ortiz has said this will be his final season, it hasn’t stopped fans and media from speculating whether he’ll stick around.

Now, with the game’s biggest names gathered in one place, it appears Ortiz’s opponents, including Mike Trout and Jon Lester, can’t believe he’s done, either.
