Wrong Tito, Ortiz Has All the Answers,
And He Can Tell Us What He Took At Any Time

Tito Gets Testy in 'EEI Interview: "What do you want him to say? We were very honest. We need to let this process play out. There are things that I�m sure are happening that are way over my head, that Major League Baseball, the union, lawyers are taking care of. David said when he has answers, he�ll address it. We don�t have answers. I don�t know how much more explicit I can be." -- 8.5.09, Red Sox manager Terry Francona on the Ortiz delay

Massarotti: Waiting for Someone to Come Fully Clean

"All we can hope for, at this stage, is that Ortiz does not adopt Rodriguez�s approach when it came time to answer questions and fill in the blanks. We don�t need to know merely what Ortiz tested positive for and when he used it. We need to know what else he has taken, if anything, and we need to know why.

We have yet to hear a single player stand up and tell us the complete truth, that the game was out of control, that players felt the need to keep up, that things became twisted and out of control. That the line between right and wrong did not grow fuzzy - it disappeared entirely - and the game became one muddied mass.

That they were all wrong." -- 8.5.09, Mazz: For Ortiz, the real test is yet to come
