    6 and 7th career HR vs De La Rosa so I wouldn't say he's great again. Loves Coors in his career as well. I still like him though.

    Because he was coming off of surgery they thought he would skate through untouched which was in retrospect a serious misjudgment.

    but the article had one highlight, when both teams are well out of playoff contention...

    Big Papi's ballpark tour: Tracking David Ortiz's farewell season
    by Scott Lauber ESPN — 2 hours ago

    [​IMG]

    David Ortiz is ready to say goodbye.

    Never mind that the iconic Boston Red Sox designated hitter has averaged 31 home runs and a .931 OPS over the past six seasons, remaining every bit the feared middle-of-the-order hitter he was in his prime. At age 40, Big Papi is intent on putting down his bat and retiring after this season. This sets up a farewell tour the likes of which we saw for New York Yankees legends Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

    From Ortiz's first career home run with the Minnesota Twins in 1997 to his 500th last September, he has made memories nearly everywhere he has played. And he has become larger than life in Boston, the only link left among the 2004, 2007 and 2013 World Series championships, and the straight-shooting slugger who spoke for a city after the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013.

    Here, we will document his stops on his last trek around the majors, remembering all the highlights he has created along the way:

    [​IMG]

    Best of Big Papi: This is the only active ballpark in which Ortiz doesn't have a hit. Then again, he has had only three career at-bats in Chavez Ravine. He will have one more trip to leave his mark here.

    Ballpark figures: 0 HRs, 0 RBIs, .000 BA in 1 game​

    Big Papiloma.
    One of those icons that that I wish had never happened. Had more to do with harvesting and coddling incomplete players than any individual in baseball.
    He and the faggot DH rule can piss off.
    The kid was right about him...

    Ortiz has done some cool things, but I hate the whole media perception of "oh, he cheated, but he's a great guy so let's completely ignore that" vs "he doesn't feed us for our stories, so let's continue to talk about him being a cheater".
