Return O' The Beard: Napoli HR Nets Sox Win

(AP Photo)He was all but gone. Every pundit had him pegged as the most likely Carmine Hoser to be dealt today. Instead, Mike Napoli was in the lineup and at the plate in the seventh with his team down by one with a man on. The burly first-baseman sent a towering fly ball to left that just caught the lip of the Monster Seats shelf. With that blow (and an insurance run in the eighth), Boston got its second win in a row—this one over Tampa, 7-5. The Sox saw a 4-3 lead evaporate in the top of the inning, but a long at-bat by David Ortiz (leading to a walk) set the stage for Napoli. Alejandro De...

David Ortiz Now Just 15 Shy Of 500 Home Runs

()After last night's offensive outburst (two 3-run HRs, 7 RBIs), David Ortiz is now just 15 home runs shy of the 500 mark. Since 2009, only one other player has eclipsed the "half-thousand' plateau—Albert Pujols just last year. Once he hits that milestone, Big Papi could conceivably pass another Red Sox icon—Ted Williams and his 521 HRs. Maybe the booing he got for not running out a grounder on Friday and the emotion of his buddy Pedro Martinez getting into the Hall of Fame have jump-started Ortiz for the second half. This could be fun to watch!

Despite tough start, David Ortiz getting back on track led by 7 RBI performance

Back on May 27, David Ortiz was batting .216 with six home runs and 18 RBIs and the designated hitter was benched for the first two games of a series in Texas with the hope of finding his swing. Even with some people in and around the game doubting him, Ortiz has figured things out […]

Red Sox 11, Tigers 1: David Ortiz unleashed

It's been a down year for David Ortiz, but he capped a hot couple months with a huge game Sunday night. On the day where Pedro Martinez assumed his rightful place in the Hall of Fame, his former teammate David Ortiz was hard at work on his case for election once he's finally called it a career. Going deep twice, Ortiz drove in seven runs Sunday night, passing Al Kaline, Rogers Hornsby, and Harmon Killebrew on the all-time RBI list. It's an offensive night that the Sox have apparently been saving for the rest of the second half, as their eleven runs came just five short of matching their...

Aging Ortiz turns boos to cheers with pair of homers

Aging Ortiz turns boos to cheers with pair of homers

He’ll turn 40 in the offseason, but David Ortiz can still swing it.With two Red Sox runners on base and last night’s game against the Tigers tied in the fifth inning, Ortiz dug his back foot into the dirt, settled into the box and fouled off strike one against Detroit starter Shane Greene. Hitting .500 this year on 0-1 counts, Ortiz pounded the next pitch — a fat one right down the middle — into the bleachers.

David Ortiz: ‘Very emotional’ watching Pedro Martinez Hall of Fame speech

Although David Ortiz only played two seasons with Pedro Martinez, he’s remained very close with him as Martinez is now a member of the Red Sox organization. Ortiz, like everyone else in the baseball world, watched Sunday’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony. “Pedro was special,” Ortiz said. “Unbelievable competitor. Best stuff I’ve ever seen in […]

Proud David Ortiz praises Pedro Martinez

Proud David Ortiz praises Pedro Martinez

It was the swing that changed David Ortiz’ career.OK, so that’s probably a bit hyperbolic. Ortiz hit 58 home runs in his first six big league seasons, so if the Red Sox hadn’t signed him 12 years ago after he’d been released by the Minnesota Twins, some other team surely would have.But this particular home run — a solo shot in the seventh inning of an Aug. 16, 2002, game at the Metrodome in Minneapolis — came against Pedro Martinez. And back then, nobody homered against Pedro Martinez.
