Ortiz Signs Four-Year Extension


He should get quite an ovation tomorrow afternoon. As he said during the press conference: "This is my house."

In speaking about the fans in Boston, Ortiz said:
I keep telling the new guys "Wait until you play your first game at Fenway Park. You might need a diaper. ... You might need a diaper, homey. It's gonna be like that every day." It's outstanding.

Eew. I really hope this is a Dominican idiom that somehow got really mangled in translation.

As if I didn't love Ortiz enough, he calls the other guy Honey.

Man, I love this guy.

Oh yeah, Big Papi rocks! I'm so glad that he's here for another five years. And the diapers comment. Heh... it just seems like classic Ortiz.
