The Sox yesterday exercised their one-year, $12.5 million option on Ortiz. The decision brings the ever-popular Big Papi back for a ninth season.
The Sox will pay Ortiz what could turn out to be twice as much as any other DH in the game makes. But Ortiz is not just another slugger for hire, given his place in team history and popularity.(boston.com)
This is such a good start for the Team.
Now it’s time to look at the pitchers.
So Happy for the Giants! If it couldn’t be the Red Sox, I was hoping for San Francisco.
We have lots of family in Frisco. One of my younger cousins took the time off work, flew to Texas and was there for the Series Winning Game!! Something he will never forget! So happy for you Teddy! Hope you took a ton of pictures.
