NH1's My Take: David Ortiz tries hand at writing editorial - yikes


We're one week away from the Red Sox Opening Day and it looked like the team would start the season drama free.

No such luck.

For some reason Big Papi, David Ortiz felt the need to write an editorial on the website called The Players Tribune. It's all about what he's had to deal with since his name was leaked back in 2009 saying that he was one of the players on the list of those who's drug test was positive in 2003.

David why would you want to open that can of worms? Well it turns out it was Fox Sports instigator in chief and bow tied buffoon, Ken Rosenthal who decided to kick that dog, and the Dominican pit bull decided to come off the porch and defend his turf.

I'm not going to get into details but one line stirred up a response from a guy I personally think is a real "Richard," Boston Globe sports writer Dan Shaughnessy. Papi refers to him as a reporter with the red jheri curl who asked him "You're from the Dominican. You're older. You fit the profile of a steroid user. Don't you think you're a prime suspect?"

Hey Dan, I'm full blooded Italian, my hair doesn't move when the wind blows and Good Fellas and the Godfather are my favorite movies. Does that make me a prime suspect for having someone whacked?

Here's my take. Rosenthal, Shaughnessy and reporters like them are just a bunch of mean spirited middle school drama queens who aren't happy unless they're making someone else miserable all in the name of "good, unbiased reporting."

Why don't you do us all a favor - and until you can show us the smoking gun - kindly shut the front door!!

Oh and Papi, I have to disagree with the jehri curls. I'm thinking more Sideshow Bob.
