David Ortiz Suggests Evil Empire Was Behind 2009 Leak

David Ortiz Suggests Evil Empire Was Behind 2009 Leak

David OrtizIn an interview with WEEI radio, Red Sox legend David Ortiz seems to hint that the Yankees—or at least powerful forces in Gotham City—were behind a 2009 New York Times leak of his name appearing on a PED list. Said Ortiz, "What happened in 2009, when they threw my name out there, I always sit down and think about what was the reason for them to come out with something like that? The only thing that I can think of, a lot of the guys from the Yankees were getting caught. No one from Boston. Who was the big guy in Boston? It was me. A newspaper coming out of New York with that...

David Ortiz on Dale & Holley with Keefe: Yankees leaked 2003 failed drug test

In 2009, the Times identified Ortiz as one of 104 players who tested positive for performance enhancing-drugs during a preliminary round of testing in Spring Training 2003. The results were supposed to remain anonymous, but […]

The Red Sox’ inherent pitching development problem and its impact right now

The Red Sox’ inherent pitching development problem and its impact right now

Pitching depth has become the most detrimental aspect of the Red Sox organization. And it doesn’t appear likely to change any time soon. On paper, this Red Sox rotation was built to be the backbone of the team. It had nearly every element you could want from a rotation — a bonafide ace (Sale), two upper-echelon innings-eaters (Porcello, Price), two younger guys with All-Star upside (Rodriguez, Pomeranz), and Steven Wright to round it out. The rotation, as constructed, would help mitigate the inevitable drop-off in the lineup with the retirement of David Ortiz. What Dombrowski didn’t...

David Ortiz: Torii Hunter didn’t want to play for Red Sox because of racist taunts

Torii Hunter says he was heckled with racial taunts when he played at Fenway Park. The abuse was so bad, it dissuaded him from signing with the Red Sox, according to David Ortiz. In an interview Wednesday on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” Ortiz said he tried to recruit Hunter when the former outfielder was a free agent […]

David Ortiz still hates Tom Kelly

David Ortiz still hates Tom Kelly

Ortiz dedicated the second chapter of his new book to how much he hates the legendary Twins manager. Former Twin David Ortiz released his new memoir on Tuesday entitled, “Papi: My Story.” As you would expect, the second chapter of the book is named “Tom Kelly and Me” and it’s all about how much the legendary Twins manager ruined David Ortiz’s life. Ortiz—who the Twins received in a trade with the Seattle Mariners in 1995—described his arrival to the Twins thusly: Many things about the Twins had changed over the years, but the same manager was still in place. His name was...

David Ortiz Denies Steroid Use On New York Radio Show

On Monday afternoon, Red Sox legend David Ortiz appeared on WFAN with Mike Francesa. After once referring to Ortiz as "Pedro", the buffoonish host asked if the former Red Sox DH had ever used steroids. Said Ortiz, "Never. That wasn’t my purpose. I was a guy that I worked extremely hard to get better. I keep on saying to people that I got more drug testing than anybody ever has in baseball, and I never failed one. It was just a rumor on the street. Nobody ever came to me and told me, ‘This is what you tested positive for.’ And you saw what the commissioner say: ‘This was...
