Papi for MVS ... Most Valuable Superhero

"This simply does not happen in baseball. Ortiz has turned major league baseball into Wiffle ball games you'd play with makeshift rules regarding rooftops, clotheslines, and summer winds. Big Papi is an action superhero come to life. He is a cartoon figure who jumps off the screen and gets it done in real life in real time. He is the mythical Joe Hardy with no apparent time limit on his powers." -- 8.1.06, Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe

"I've never pitched in a game that's made me feel this way. All I was trying to do was give us an opportunity to come back and win this game at the tail end and I'll be darned if David Ortiz didn't step up to the plate and do it again." -- 7.31.06, Kyle Snyder came though in the clutch

"The guy had to make a pitch at the time or get the bases loaded and having a hitter like Manny coming up. I just go out there with the same approach that I always go. See a pitch and hit it." -- 7.31.06, Mr. Big
