David Ortiz Makes It Official—He Really Is Retired

(Exclusive FenwayNation Photo)David Ortiz has officially submitted his retirement paperwork to Major League Baseball. So all the pipe-dreams about his returning for one more year are just that. When the Red Sox exercised the $17.2 million 2017 option on his contract, some in The Nation saw visions of sugar-plum fairies dancing in the air. Alas, it would not happen. And so, the torch will be passed on to some lesser light like Edwin Encarnación, Jose Bautista, Carlos Beltran or (heaven forbid) a merry-go-round centered on Pablo Sandoval. But it won't be the same. It will never again be the...

(Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald) Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista are clearly two of the more intriguing options, though they’re not without their downsides.

Daily Red Sox Links: Edwin Encarnacion, Michael Kopech, David Ortiz

Today’s links look at the trouble of projecting older players, Michael Kopech’s hopeful maturity and another prediction for the offseason. Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista are both going to cost a lot of money, but that’s not all they’ll cost. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald) Still, the Red Sox need to replace David Ortiz somehow. And, in the process, they need to figure a way to project old age. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) Michael Kopech is clearly very talented, but he’s also had some off-the-field issues. He says those are behind him. (Stan Grossfeld; Boston...

Jose Bautista is a fun Giants rumor that doesn’t make sense

Home runs from an outfielder? Sure! But there’s a catch ... I love watching Jose Bautista at his best. He’s an all-or-nothing master of the three true outcomes, the kind of low-average, high-power hitter that scares the bejeepers out of all pitchers. Come to think of it, he’s the exact opposite of nearly every Giants hitter over the last couple years. Maybe that explains my personal fascination. He also plays the outfield, and the Giants are looking for an outfielder. Say, this looks like a potential match. From Nick Cafardo’s column on Sunday: The Red Sox are a potential landing...
