What a Country!
Even If You Signed a Contract that Grossly Overpays You,
You Get to Demand a New One Before It Expires
Hey David, If You Didn't Like the Deal You Signed in 2006,
Then Why Were You So Thrilled with It at the Time?
This Just In... Every Contract Has a Final Year, Deal with it David
Greed is Good. Sincerely, Gordon Gekko
With fans struggling to make ends meet, Ortiz won't just play out the end of his contract: "I'm not comfortable coming back just for one year because it's going to be the same roller-coaster that I had this year. All the question marks. People still don't realize what you're capable of doing even after eight years. I'm the kind of guy who likes to be left alone, play my game and be the best at my position." -- A shameless David Ortiz to Rob Bradford
