David Ortiz Signs Four Year Extension


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."

The home opener just ended - another W for Beckett; another homerun for Papi and another save for Papelbon... Woo Hoo!

Coco Crisp is locked up in center field...now if Wily Mo can just stop chasing bad pitches and play some defense.... Going to try to catch Sox at Jacob's field in a couple weeks when I return to Ohio... I's been almost seven years since I was last at Fenway...need to rectify that soon.
