Papi breaks out!

So, his bat may not be smokin' hot - yet! But Big Papi had 5 rbis last night, including a Grand Slam Home Run, in the Red Sox victory over the Texas Rangers. 11-7. Daisuke Matsuzaka got his FOURTH victory of the young season, although he threw 101 pitches in only 5 1/3 innings. I guess that's something we're going to have to get used to with the Dice - tons of pitches, not tons of innings. But he's been fortunate to have the offense working on his behalf.

And what an offense! Ortiz hit the grand slam with the bases loaded with the kids: Pedroia, Ellsbury and Lowrie. Awesome. And I loved that the team gave Ortiz the "silent treatment" when he got back to the dugout - waiting several minutes before actually congratulating him. Not a great video here, but you get the idea:

And on a totally un-Red Sox note - this video is very funny!
