David Ortiz Says He’s Not Too Far Away From Being 100 percent

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

David Ortiz: “I’m going to be done when I’ve decided that I’m done, not when the media says that I’m done”

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Maybe David Ortiz isn’t done after all.  I sure thought he was.  After a poor 2009 season, questions about David Ortiz and whether or not it was time for him to call it quits started to get raised.  And with good reason.  After all, Ortiz had two straight years where ...

Terry Francona Needs Production Over Clubhouse Happiness

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

The Mad Leaker Strikes Again: Manny And Big Papi Were Juicing in 2003

When will baseball get this right? Why not release the whole 104 player list created in 2003 for players who tested positive for steroids? The big names continue to trickle out of the list as Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz both have been linked to this steroid abuser list. While Manny ...

Jose Canseco, Still Trying to Stay Relevant, By Talking About David Ortiz

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Jose Canseco is, obviously, pretty slimy. But for as repulsive as he is, he's actually been more correct in terms of his accuracy for predicting/naming steroid users.
