Re: Rumors of Papi's Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated !

I see no reason to expect a marked decline in HR per PA or Slg% from 2012 beyond natural age regression.
Thanks for making my case, stooge.
PA can't come from the disabled list.
Listen clown, lack of PA is not the defintion of "punch & judy" no matter how much you try ti think it is.
His HR per season is the issue, stooge. Leave it to you to bash Ortiz and follow Olney's lead to release him in 2010, then fall asleep and fail to recognize what a washed up middle of the order punch and judy hitter looks like.
Stop the lies. I never said release Papi. I wanted him demoted from the 3 slot. You, on the other hand, wanted to slap him in the face and send him to AAA.
You went on and on about washed up Wastefield, and you will go on and on about washed up Ortiz. At this point, he's a punch and judy pinch hitter guy who splits time at DH.
Begin your Lowell treatment as I projected.
Over this two year contract, Ortiz and the "natural age regression" will manifest in DL stints and RBI and HR season averages that reflect a bench guy, part-time DH and pinch hitter.
You were fully behind extending him for 2 years for more money than I was, and even called me a racist for daring to "lowball" him. Then, he got hurt and you crumbled like a dried up coffee cake.
His latest words reflect the reality that he knows there will be no more fooling and getting a big contract anymore, which reflects the reality that Ortiz has bad wheels that aren't going to get better without PED. Unless the Red Sox use him as a part-time player, he's going back on the DL in less than 3 months.
I know you are praying this happens as you did with Jake & Jed. You are no true Sox fan, clown.
