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