Ortiz to Gordo on ESPNBoston.com: "Basically, it seems like no matter what you do, it's not good enough. And you can only call leaders the guys who are out diving for balls on the field or calling pitches behind the plate? No. 1, I don't agree with that. And No. 2, what I do I don't do for people to know. I do it for my teammates, to get to know things better. I don't give a [expletive] about anybody knowing what we talk about, No. 1. And No. 2, I don't give a [expletive] what they call leaders."

Yeah Papi (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When I hit homers (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)
