You've Got to Be Kidding
David and Ted

Jonathan Papelbrain Thinks David Ortiz Is
Bigger Than Ted Williams

One Is The Greatest Hitter That Ever Lived, Bravely Fought for
The United States of America, And Was Paid Peanuts
The Other Is Making $14,575,000 This Year, Tunes Out His Manager, And Whines About His Money While the Red Sox Season Is Falling Apart
Think Again Jon Boy

"I've already said, let's pay him. I've said David [Ortiz] is the Red Sox. David is Red Sox baseball. If I'm the owner or I'm the GM I pay him whatever makes him happy. He's different than anybody else. He's different than Ted Williams. In my opinion, he's bigger [to the Red Sox] than Ted." -- Jon Papelbon doesn't know what he doesn't know, again
