Edes: Steroids Report Infuriates Ortiz, Francona

"Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who spoke with the Boston Herald earlier this week about the Giants slugger, was furious about a short story that accompanied the main piece, one that appeared under the headline, 'Papi unwitting 'roid user?' In that story, Ortiz spoke about how he used to drink protein shakes in his native Dominican Republic, but abandoned the practice because he didn't know what the drinks contained. 'I don't know if I drank something in my youth, not knowing it,' he told the Herald.

The national media picked up the story, and Ortiz said yesterday he may stop talking to reporters altogether. "Maybe it's better not to say anything," said Ortiz, frustrated that the story invited unwanted attention.

Manager Terry Francona also was distressed." -- 5.10.07, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
