It’s looking more and more like the Red Sox may release David Ortiz. What a difference three years makes, huh?
Here’s a wild thought: Say Nick Johnson continues to struggle or ends up on the D.L., and Big Papi is “out there” for anyone to pick up…would the Yankees make a move and replace Johnson with Ortiz?
How strange would that be…seeing Ortiz in a Yankees uniform?
It would sort be like when New York picked up George Scott in 1979 and John Mayberry in 1982. And, it would probably work out just as well as those two moves did – meaning badly.
