Papi Passes Chipper (HRs) and Joe D (RBIs)

HR Number 469When David Ortiz smacked his 469th career home run last night, he was able to scoot by two pretty good ballplayers on a couple of all-time lists. The Red Sox DH slid into 32nd place on the all-time HR list—passing Chipper Jones. The solo shot also provided Big Papi with his 1,538th RBI—vaulting over the bow of The Yankee Clipper, Joe DiMaggio. Reflecting on the recent controversies surrounding him, Ortiz stated, "The other day, I think I tied DiMaggio in RBIs. In the past four days, all I've seen on TV is, 'Papi got thrown out of the game.'" Yesterday's homerun was his...

Buckley: David Ortiz's emotions get best of him again

We have again arrived at that crazy David Ortiz Crossroads.Once there, we have a choice: Champion the cause of Big Papi and be dismissed as a toady or call the guy out for his latest act of churlish, childish behavior and be labeled a hater.Before continuing, please know that the best approach — that is, the fair approach — is to take things on a case-by-case basis.

Red Sox get to celebrate

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Chris Archer kept celebrating.Archer, the Red Sox’ newest nemesis from Tampa Bay after he complained about David Ortiz celebrating a home run last season and Ortiz gave him the “whatever” treatment, has been seen celebrating every strikeout against the Sox.He struck out nine of them last night and punctuated his punchout of Ortiz in the fifth inning by jumping, screaming and fist-pumping his way to the dugout. There was, however, an obvious flaw in his joyous attitude.The Rays were losing.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz suspended 1 game for bumping umpire

The Red Sox DH gets an unscheduled day off after making contact with an ump. David Ortiz argued balls and strikes with home plate umpire John Tumpane in Sunday's game against the Orioles, and that got him tossed. He'll serve more of a punishment than that, however, as he bumped Tumpane in the aftermath, and that's a no-no in Major League Baseball. Ortiz has been suspended for one game, and while not bumping into umpires is kind of an obvious thing, Ortiz is going to appeal the suspension anyway. This shouldn't harm the Red Sox much, if at all, given they don't mind handing Ortiz a day off...
