Big Papi, say it ain’t so

31 Jul

Thing is, I love David Ortiz. I love his Comcast commercials from a few years back, where he told us about his recipe for mango salsa. I love his big, goofy, catlike smile. And, especially, I love his walk-off home runs that always seem to come at the right time.

Thing is: how many games were won by David Ortiz walk-off homers that wouldn’t have been won otherwise? More to the point, how many games would we have lost if he hadn’t been juicing?

Even more to the point: would we have won either the 2004 or 2007 World Series if Manny and Papi hadn’t had PEDs injected into them? And if so: does this invalidate two of the happiest moments of my life?

Or is it all ok, because the Yankees were juicing too?

    Heard about this off of the other day and I have been naggingly depressed about it ever since.

    I still love the game and the Sox, but man…they’re making it hard.
