OTM Roundtable: David Ortiz memories

OTM Roundtable: David Ortiz memories

This was the one moment taken off the table. | Set Number: X156411 TK1 R4 F146 Gather around for some David Ortiz story sharing. With David Ortiz being officially elected into the Hall of Fame earlier this week, getting in on his first ballot and becoming the first Boston Red Sox star to be inducted since Pedro Martinez in 2015, the topic for this week’s roundtable was incredibly easy for me to come up. For this week, I simply asked staff to share their most treasured Ortiz memory as Red Sox fans. I should point out, though, that I took the 2013 post-Marathon speech...

FanPost Friday: Talking about David Ortiz

Photo by ERIKA SANTELICES/afp/AFP via In whatever way you’d like. This has obviously been a very big week in the world of the Boston Red Sox, with one of the most legendary players from the history of this long-running franchise, David Ortiz, was officially voted into the Hall of Fame by the BBWAA. Now a first-ballot Hall of Famer, the long-time Red Sox slugger was the lone player in this year’s class on the BBWAA ballot to make it into the Hall. It is very much a well-deserved induction, and while unfortunately a lot of attention has (understandably, I suppose)...

Red Sox Top Prospect Voting: Nick Yorke’s meteoric rise

Red Sox Top Prospect Voting: Nick Yorke’s meteoric rise

Nick Yorke at 2020 Alternate Site | Kelly O’Connor From maligned first rounder to top 50 prospect in the blink of an eye. The way the farm system for the Boston Red Sox seems to be shaping up in the (hopefully short) time before players begin reporting to camp, it would appear as though there is a clear top three. Triston Casas and Marcelo Mayer are the top two, and while the vote for our list wasn’t that close there isn’t much consensus on who is above the other. The other is Nick Yorke, who feels pretty locked in as that number three prospect. That was certainly...

(Alex Speier; Boston Globe) The general consensus is that Triston Casas will be a slugger at the MLB level, but maybe we’re underselling the level of slugging he’ll be reaching.

Red Sox Trade Lookback: Jose Canseco traded back to Oakland for John Wasdin

Red Sox Trade Lookback: Jose Canseco traded back to Oakland for John Wasdin

Way back Wasdin, that is. As I talked about last weekend, we are going to try to be covering more history with the Boston Red Sox with notable anniversaries around the team. That was within a 25th anniversary post about the signing of Steve Avery, and we’re going back to that year with another big transaction to try and bolster the pitching staff. But before we get to that, we should start with the original acquisition of Jose Canseco, who would be the departing portion of this trade, and really the more famous side of it. In fact, by the time the Red Sox acquired the slugger...

Michael Wacha shouldn’t be locked into the rotation

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ Unlike the other veterans around him, he should have to earn his spot in the rotation. Prior to the lockout going into effect, the Boston Red Sox were, much like many other teams around the league, quite busy adding to their roster. Although they didn’t add the quality of starting pitcher that some of us perhaps expected and certainly hoped for, they added a trio of veteran arms to join their rotation. One, James Paxton, will be on the shelf for at least the first half of the season, but both Rich Hill and Michael Wacha are expected to be...

(Logan Mullen; NESN) Of course, it wasn’t a sure thing Ortiz would get the votes to make the Hall of Fame.

Instead, people are left to just hope that the drips of news regarding negotiations for a new CBA will soon turn into a report saying the two sides are close to a deal. But for fans of the Boston Red Sox, we got a legitimate baseball thing for which we can be ecstatic on Tuesday when it was officially announced that David Ortiz would be going to the Hall of Fame.

Fresh off the collapse of 2011, this was the team that Bobby Valentine helmed for a year before being fired. The Red Sox went just 69-93 and finished in last place in the American League East for the first time since 1992 and the first time ever under the five-team-per-division alignment. However, mixed into that horrific season were the bones of previous and future title teams as well as a few fun guys who...

Set Number: X72074 TK4 And made an incalculable impact on so many baseball fans in Boston and beyond. As I’m sure you know if you’re reading this, David Ortiz was officially elected to the Hall of Fame on Tuesday night. It was no sure thing, even in the hours leading up to the announcement, but by the end of the night the Boston Red Sox legend was the lone player voted in by the BBWAA. It’s clearly well-deserved, as Ortiz was one of the best hitters of his generation even taking away all of the other postseason and general clutch moments that helped form his...
