Great quote about Ortiz

Fox Sports writer Mark Kriegel deserves credit for a great statement about Red Sox "slugger" David Ortiz-

"On Friday it will be exactly eight months since David Ortiz hit his last home run. So, of course, there's talk of moving him down in the lineup. Good idea. Who's batting seventh in Pawtucket?"

Don’t know who or where Pawtucket is, but would like to hear your thoughts about George Brett’s outburst of profanity.

The Brett tirade was very sad indeed. Why they let him remain as "VP"is beyond me. Brett is a loose canon that has the position because of his legendary status as a baseball player. What does he know about being a "VP" or acting as a spokesman for the Royals organization.

The problem is, who would can George Brett in Kansas City? I'm afraid we're stuck with listening to his outbursts.

Thanks Tony! As Jack Harry said, "It’s sad that he felt he had to express his feelings in such a way." Brett is indeed a Kansas city Baseball ICON, but that really hurt his reputation. I think he needs to publically apologize, especially to the young folks who look up to him.
What Brett truly needs is to yield his cold and stony heart to the Lord! Wouldn't that be a beautiful metamorphous?

Answer: Who is Sean P. Danielson batting seventh for Pawtucket as they defeated the Buffalo Bisons today he went 1 for 3 with an RBI.

But I am sure it was a rhetorical question.

As for George Brett what are we to expect from a man who charged the field when he was guilty as sin regarding the location of pine tar on his bat.

As for Big Papi his only vice is that he plays for the Boston Red Sox.
