From The Herald – David Wells says:
“David (Ortiz) right now is in a league all by himself,” Wells said last night at Tropicana Field, where the Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 7-4, in the finale of a three-game series.
“There’s no (expletive) question what he means to this team. (The MVP) is David Ortiz. The guy’s as humble as (expletive). He jokes around every day and doesn’t say a bad thing about anybody. He makes people laugh on the bus and at the park, and if we’re going to talk about defense, let’s talk about (clubhouse contributions), too. He’s not going to say that he’s working out before everyone else wakes up in the morning.
“If they’re going to do that and personality comes into play, he’s got it unanimously.”
He’s not going to say that he’s working out before everyone else wakes up in the morning.
Uh, maybe he can’t say it because he’s not doing that? Or, maybe he doesn’t have to do that since he’s not required to field or expected to run during games?
You don’t need to be in shape to do stand-up on a bus, right?
Nah, that can’t be it, huh?
