David Ortiz on Boston Marathon Bombing, one year later

David Ortiz reflects on the year that's passed since the Boston Marathon Bombing. Maybe it's just because the Red Sox are such a big part of my life, but David Ortiz stands as one of the indelible images of the 2013 Marathon Bombing. The bombing itself--both the horror of the moment, and the strength shown in its immediate aftermath--will always be tied to this incredible photo. But when I think of the recovery that followed, I can't help but come back to David Ortiz standing in Fenway Park and declaring Boston once and forever "our fucking city." It's been 366 days since that horrible...

'David Ortiz' shows up on Saturday Night Live to talk food

And giant-ass phones. David Ortiz has been in the news lately for his selfie with President Barrack Obama, a selfie that has come under fire because Ortiz, who has an endorsement deal with Samsung, used a Samsung phone to take said selfie. I know. It was almost too horrifying for me to type out. Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update picked up on this, though, and parodied Ortiz in their latest episode. Faux Papi really, really likes food (and giant-ass phones). Hey Samsung, if you want to give me an S5, I'll take as many promotional selfies as you want with local politicians. Just make...

Win hopes corralled by more Ichiro magic

Win hopes corralled by more Ichiro magic

NEW YORK — The Red Sox and New York Yankees played a heck of a game last night that featured no shortage of sterling defensive plays, but they saved the best practically for last.With the Sox trailing by a run and one out in the eighth, ageless Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki made a leaping catch that robbed David Ortiz of extra bases, crashing into the fence and helping ensure a 3-2 New York victory.“That ninja (expletive),” Ortiz saluted. “He’s good, man. He’s good.”

Today's links look at the future plans for John Lackey, the dominance performance of David Ortiz in high-leverage situations and a Red Sox legend's memorabilia auction.

David Ortiz blasts game-winning homer, takes slowest homer trot ever

There were extenuating circumstances that caused this, at least. The Red Sox were down 2-1 in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, and it looked like they might drop their second series of the year despite a strong effort from starting pitcher Jake Peavy. David Ortiz came to the rescue against Rangers' reliever Neal Cotts, though, destroying a 1-1 pitch left right out over the plate, depositing it into the right field bleachers. This was no Pesky Pole special, either: according to Hit Tracker Online, this ball was out of all 30 parks, and gave Ortiz the...

Jake Peavy is thrilled with effort, result

Jake Peavy was in the clubhouse in the eighth inning, so he didn’t see David Ortiz’s three-run blast which proved to be the difference in the Red Sox’ 4-2 win over the Rangers Wednesday afternoon. He also did not reap the benefits of Ortiz’s shot in his personal win column. That matters little to the righthander.

The picture of clutch: David Ortiz comes to Red Sox’ rescue yet again

As the ball hung in the air, fighting to stay to the left of Pesky’s Pole, David Ortiz stood at home plate long enough that he could have pulled out his phone — a Samsung, naturally — and snapped a selfie or two for posterity.Maybe next time.Yesterday, Ortiz had to settle for a leisurely jog around the bases, his arcing, eighth-inning drive landing safely in the right field grandstand for a three-run homer, the difference in the Red Sox’ come-from-behind 4-2 win over the Texas Rangers in the series finale at Fenway Park.

Silva: Ortiz's Blast Sets Tone for Yanks

Steve Silva reports from Fenway Park where David Ortiz belted a three-run homer in the eighth to give the Red Sox a 4-2 win over the Rangers. Next up for Boston is a four-game set in the Bronx.

Ortiz's jolt sends Sox to N.Y. on high note

BOSTON -- The dry erase board in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse on Wednesday night listed the time that the bus was set to leave for the airport for the team to catch its flight to New York, as it always does on getaway day. "Bus - 7:55," it read. David Ortiz began getting dressed at 8:04 p.m. He spoke with reporters at 8:10. And he sauntered out of the clubhouse, the last member of the team -- player or coach -- at 8:14, off to the Bronx to begin a big four-game series with the Yankees.

After learning his lesson, Ortiz comes through -- yet again

David Ortiz’s encounter with Neal Cotts in Tuesday night’s eighth inning rendered a result typical of the battles between the Red Sox designated hitter and the Rangers reliever. Cotts won, needing only four pitches to strike out the slugger, and to leave Ortiz 0-for-5 lifetime – with five whiffs and a walk – against the lefty. The Red Sox eventually lost, but as overmatched as he might’ve looked in the moment, it wasn’t an entirely unproductive plate appearance for Ortiz. “That at-bat I had against him the other night,” the DH said Wednesday, “it helped me out to make some...
