Back in 2011, David Ortiz burst into Terry Francona’s pregame meeting with the press to complain about a call the official scorer at Fenway Park made then night before that cost him an RBI.
The incident became kind of a big deal at the time and a piece of the messy story of that season.
So you can imagine the scene this afternoon when John Farrell was meeting with the media and suddenly Big Papi was coming through the door.
“Hey” he said. “That scorer they got here is full of it.”
Then Ortiz smiled.
“I’m just [messing] with you all,” he said before ducking out.
