Callahan: The Papi Problem
Gerry Callahan, 1.21.09: "Ortiz, who turned 33 (officially) in November, vowed to get in top shape this offseason, but there are some skeptics in the Sox front office. Will there be a noticeable difference in his body when he reports to Fort Myers in three weeks? Like Vaughn, Ortiz always has relied on his strength and power, and it’s hard to imagine he’s now running the beach or jumping rope... Well, you can be sure Theo Epstein and Co. wouldn’t mind seeing a little effort from Ortiz, maybe a body fat percentage somewhere between Obama’s and Oprah’s."
