David 'Big Papi' Ortiz went 0-7 yesterday and stranded 12 runners. According to CNNSI, Ortiz "dressed slowly while facing his corner locker, then turned around and saw a swarm of reporters surrounding him before saying: ''Sorry, guys. I don't feel like talking today. Just put down, 'Papi stinks.'''"
I've never liked Ortiz, but that's because he always killed us. He was a great player, and a genuine person, but he was a Red Sock so he sucked. But watching this, and hearing a quote like that, is just sad. I honestly feel bad for the guy. I can't say I hope he turns it around, but, as much as it pains me to say it, I do hope he starts doing better, against the Devil Rays and Blue Jays anyway. After all, he taught Manny how to use steroids.
