The Numbers Don't Lie

Steve Buckley: David Ortiz Needs a Proof Reader
Marketing Alert: Sox Break Out a New Version of the Green Jerseys

"...this is spring training 2010, and Ortiz is coming off two seasons of injuries and reduced offensive performance. His on-base percentage has dipped from a career-high .445 in 2007 to .369 to .332, his slugging percentage from .621 to .507 to .462. And he is 34 years old now - not exactly senior-citizen status by professional sports standards, but nonetheless an age in which bulky sluggers often break down, lose a step or develop an inability to crank an opposing pitcher’s good inside heat. Think Mo Vaughn, Cecil Fielder or Kevin Mitchell." -- 3.18.10, Buckley brings the heat to Big Papi
