A lovely Saturday afternoon


John Henry is a very rich and powerful man. I am beginning to believe he has used his resources to great the perfect baseball robot/machine. And his name is David Ortiz. How many times has he come through for us in the clutch? Is it selfish to continue to count on him like this? He came to the plate today, bottom of the 10th inning, Alex Cora at first. He works Tom Gordon to a 2-2 count, then rips the next pitch to dead straight away center field. Un-f'ing-believeable. I was on my feet, cheering and yelling - unbelievable. He is the absolute definition of the clutch hitter. How can anyone deny that he is the most valuable player on this or any other team? How can they continue to deny him that MVP trophy?
