Say it ain’t so, Big Papi

The news that David “Pig Papi” Ortiz tested positive for roids back in 2003 isn’t so much a shocker as it is disappointing.

Even more disappointing when you take what he said about players on roids

“Ban ’em for the whole year,’’ he declared.

He also said he’d be happy to be tested three or four times a year, whatever it would take. “I think you clean up the game by testing,’’ he said. “I know that if I test positive for using any kind of substance, I know that I’m going to disrespect my family, the game, the fans, and everybody. I don’t want to be facing that situation.’’

For me…it puts a damper on his heroics in the incredible 2004 postseason when the Red Sox broke the curse and won the World Series.

Say it ain’t so, Big Papi!
