It's a Big Papi kind of world

05/15/2014 5:21pm

Ok David Ortiz we get it, you’re a hall of famer in the making, but four homers in the span of two games?? That’s just crazy, no, that is what I like to call “stupid good.”

What makes this even better, or worse for the Twins, is that it was 12 years ago that they let a backup first-baseman/DH leave because heck they don’t need a guy like that? 

Right? That was back in 2002 when David Arias Ortiz was a no-name, a castaway that the Sox figured could stew in the minors or play in case someone better came along.
386 home runs later and now David Ortiz, or Big Papi, is the single greatest designated hitter of all time, and the Sox are just happy they get to ride along with the show. 

Make no mistake about it–it’s David’s world, the rest of us are just living in it.
Now I don’t know if Ortiz’s power surge is his way of showing the Twins what they missed out on, or just him getting sick and tired of seeing his club lose ball games. Either way I’m just glad that he chose to turn it up. Geez, they should change Target Field’s name to Target Practice cause that’s all it is for David.
