Movement Begins To Erect David Ortiz Statue At Fenway

Don't get us wrong, we are among the biggest David Ortiz fans on the planet. Personally, I will never forget the moment in Game Four of the 2004 ALCS when he delivered the quintessential "keep-hope-alive" HR to smite The Evil Ones.

Dave Dombrowski on possible David Ortiz extension: ‘Not the time of year to deal with those kind of things’

It’s the conversation that is only getting louder, thanks in large part to what David Ortiz is doing. Would Ortiz consider not retiring after the 2016 season if the Red Sox made it worth his while? One of the people who would have a say in executing such an offer to the designated hitter, Red […]
