Good news for Red Sox fans everywhere, Big Papi is staying in Boston for the foreseeable future. A great guy who is a positive force in the club house, a team leader and perhaps the best clutch hitter in the game, Ortiz is the sort of guy everyone wants on their team and we have him at least until 2010.
"I'm proud to be a Red Sox player," said the player, who just last year was awarded a plaque by ownership, honoring him as the "Best Clutch Player" in Red Sox history. "We had a long talk about myself staying here in Boston. What can I say? I want to finish my career as a Red Sox player. Thanks to Mr. Lucchino, Mr. Henry and Mr. Werner and Theo, we worked this out so I'll be around a while."
