David Ortiz got linked to steroids, left 9 on base and probably contracted herpes...all in one weekend!
Not a good year for David Ortiz.
He's hitting .227 with 15 HRs and 60 RBIs -- not so bad, actually. He'd be the best hitter on the Giants. -- and the Red Sox are chasing the hated Yankees in the AL East, blah blah blah. He also got linked to steroids late last week, which is interesting in a non-interesting--duh-if-I-hear-about-steroids-one-more-time-I'm-going-to-throw-my-roommate-out-the-window kind of way.
So bad season, steroids, bad nickname. Then Sunday, the Red Sox beat the Ravens 18-10 and Boston pounds out 23 hits.
Ortiz? 0-5 with NINE left on base. As in seven, eight, NINE!!! That's the entire team. David Ortiz left Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez, Kevin Youkilis, David Ortiz (just go with it), J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, Josh Reddick and Jed Lowrie on base. (Josh Reddick?)
David Ortiz hates driving in runs. NINE LEFT ON BASE! NOT GOOD!
