    I was joking about the photoshop....obviously.

    I doubt that a fat Ortiz would show up to spring training after posting that photo.

    Big Papi has worked hard to line himself up for another great season.

    I'd rather think about Papi maintaining his 2013 WS OBP throughout the 2014 seasonWink

    HOF!!!

    I'd be impressed if Ortiz was able to photoshop a picture of himself to look like that.

    I don't know...I kind of have the same question as the poster who suggested that the picture was photo-shopped. Now..before anyone has a meltdown..look at his arms and compare them to a picture of Ortiz say..6 months ago. His arms should look bigger if he's lost weight yet they look smaller. This would suggest that in addition to losing weight..he also lost muscle mass.

    Also..that looks like a pretty significant weight loss over the last public picture of Ortiz which was a couple of weeks ago.

    So the question begs...is that picture photo-shopped or did Ortiz go on a crash diet to drop weight?

    Added to that..isn't Ortiz a Reebok guy? Some Reebok exec. somewhere is no doubt cringing at the sight of him in a Nike shirt.

    Yes, David is a Reebok athlete and when not on MLB time, he wears Reebok product. Also, David looked great last year.  On tv he looks a little heavy but at games he is a perfectly built athlete. With his perfect season last year I am not sure why he would want to change anything.

    Are there any news sources reporting David's sudden weight loss?  Just a few weeks ago in front the cameras when asking for an extension, he looked the same and no one mentioned any weight loss from the WS champion and MVP.

    Well, he lost weight before last year, so maybe he wants to keep going.

    Down in weight- up in OPS.

    The Boston media is all hung up on the extension grab to notice anything else.

    David Ortiz lost weight

    There are best-shape-of-his-life anecdotes, and then there are best-shape-of-his-life pictures. This is one of the latter.

     

     

    Going to guess that everyone has the Medium Papi joke at the ready. So we can also go with:

    Moderate Papi
    Median Papi
    Sparse Papi
    Appropriately Portioned Papi
    Still Quite Big, But Not As In Your Face About It Papi
    Papi

    Jokes aside, he looks terrifying. And that's probably a good thing for the Red Sox.

    I disagree that he looks "terrifying"...but we can agree to disagree on that matter. We've been so busy focusing on the picture but maybe we need to focus on the message of that tweet by Ortiz and the subsequent tweet about how proud his is to wear the Sox uniform.

     

    First..who are these media haters that Ortiz speaks of? Seems to me that the media loves this guy almost as much as Red Sox Nation. I love and appreciate Ortiz' on-field skills as well...but this attitude of his that he doesn't get any respect or that people hate him is one of those things that just takes away from it for me.

    So Ortiz actually tweeted ou this picture.  I saw the comments.  I think most are only concerned about  who the person signing the check.


    Well he does look skinny and again I am not sure why he wanted to lose that much weight.  Older running backs will do it to gain speed. David is a dh and no one cares about his speed on the bases.  I know in the gym if I lose 20 pounds, it affects my bench. Looks like he lost 20 to 30 pounds in a matter of a few weeks.  When he was holding the dog on his lap to promote his new endorsement, he looked the same as he did in the ws.

    Hi Hammah, yes, I think it was necessary.  I am sick of the guy's comments about "Dominican milkshakes" and "38 going on 43" not to mention his "humor" about how "nothing good has ever come from Mexico" and I daresay I'm not alone in my hatred of him.  He's a moron and a bigot and deserves 10 times the aggro he gets here.

    well steven, I look at it this way. Papi drops 20 lbs and that means 20 less lbs on his large frame that could or could not effect his heel issue. the guy is megah strong and is gonna be great this year. and hopefully a couple of good years after.

    I don't hink he looks terrifying either... that was an article I grabbed someone here was asking if anyone reported on Big Papi's weight loss, that was the first article that popped up. 

     

    Shaunessy has got to be one of those haters. There is no love lost between Ortiz and Dan.

    One thing is for sure... Big Papi knows how to keep people talking.

    That is a great point.  One person never mentioned who deserves a sox ring as much as anyone is the trainer who spent endless hours on Ortiz's foot problem.  Callahan on weei spent 20 minutes one morning on what Ortiz's trainer did to get him back in the line-up.

    JP Morgan's CEO just got a 74% pay raise, despite the $20 Billion in fines his company was just ordered to pay for criminal wrongdoings under his watch.

    Dimon made about $10,000 oer hour, which means he made more in his firast 2 hours of work this last year than a minimum wage earner.

     

    He deserves it, right?

     

     

    Afterall, he didn't use the media to try and get the most he could get. He got his next contract behind closed door like "real gentlemen" do.

    I don't think the media or fans helped david ever or help most players.  In the end it is between the player and the owner.

    The only problem people have with David's latest complaint is, he is willing to leave Boston if he does not soon get an extension.  Boston fans are fickle and if David is willing to threaten to leave, then there is a large group who are willing to say so long, don't let the door hit you while you are leaving.

    Everyone is replaceable, we have seen it with other players like Mo, Clemens, fisk, lynn etc.
