Henry Owebs Fizzles, Red Sox Lost To Tribe, 8-2

()Forget about that 82-80 miracle comeback—and maybe that third place finish. The Red Sox find themselves back in last place after an 8-2 punishing by the Indians. Rookie Henry Owens looked overmatched—going just 4 1/3 innings and giving up seven earned runs. Boston's only offense came from David Ortiz's two-run HR—his 37th on the year and 503rd of his career. Xander Bogaerts—who scored ahead of Ortiz on the HR—got one hit. That leaves him five shy of the 200-hit mark—with probably eight more at-bats in the season.

The plate appearance was the 39-year-old’s 600th for his season, triggering the final stage of his option for 2016. By stepping to the plate for that first time […]

David Ortiz's 'dream job' is porn star

No, really. Big Papi said it himself. Well, you clicked on the headline or the tweet or whatever, so I'm pretty sure you know why you're here. Don't worry, don't worry: we're here to deliver unto you what was promised. David Ortiz really did say he would be love to be a porn star if it weren't for his career in baseball. Or, more accurately, he wrote as much, in the Players' Tribune. Players' Tribune Ortiz's porn name would just be Big Papi, right? Why change what you already know works? This was one of the answers to the questions in the "What the (Blank)?" series the...
