Report: Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003 - ESPN

*le sigh*. The inevitability of this news doesn’t really take the edge off the sadness. The Red Sox had been lucky with the steroid testing leaks and reports so far. Now, the 2004 & 2007 World Series wins are _officially_ tarnished.

Bill Simmons - It's hard to say goodbye to David Ortiz

Great piece by Bill Simmons on the decline of the Large Father. FWIW, I don’t think Papi’s current decline is a sign of stopping using a banned substance — Why would he stop now? Nothing has changed in MLB testing over the last couple of years.

Me & David Ortiz

Me & David Ortiz

I finally have photographic proof that I met David Ortiz at CES.

Because my camera was a tad busted, the folks behind me in line offered to take my photo with their camera, then email me the photo. It arrived last night, so now you can all see evidence of the strong personal friendship me & Papi share.

Boston Red Sox - Sunshine state

The Globe’s Gordon Edes, painting pictures with words: “Ortiz was still light on his feet after the game, dancing in the buff back and forth in the shower room while singing over and over at the top of his lungs the theme from “Monday Night Football.” “Dah-dah-dah-DAH, dah-dah-dah-DAH,” sang Ortiz, apparently jacked up that the team’s fantasy football draft was about to commence as soon as he could find a towel.”

I’m not going to be able to shift that image from my brain for a while.
