Big Papi Bleeping Telling Us It's A Bleeping Long Season, Dawg

Boston slugger David Ortiz is not about to let an 0-for-7 hitless streak to start the season dampen his spirits. The veteran has been around long enough not to get worked up over a couple 0-fers in April.

However, Ortiz did get worked up into a lather when discussing why everyone should relax about his going 0 for the season so far.

When asked how he felt at the plate, Ortiz was short and to the point without belaboring or betraying anything.

↵

“I’ll be fine,” said Ortiz. “Of course. I wouldn’t be here [if I didn’t think I was about to break out]. It’s not time to start worrying about that [expletive]. Not yet.”

↵

But Ortiz was pressed a bit, and asked if he thought it was fair people might automatically assume he’s destined for the same kind of two-month slump to begin this season as he suffered last summer.

↵

That’s when the steam started coming out of Big Papi’s ears.

↵

“Look dawg. I’m not talking. Let me finish,” said an animated Ortiz as he got dressed at his locker following the loss. “You guys just wait until [expletive] happens and then you guys talk [expletive].

↵

“Two [expletive] games already and you mother [expletives] are going crazy. What’s up with that, man. [Expletive]. There’s 160 games left. Ain’t that a bitch.”

↵
↵

So, there. Big Papi has spoken and Red Sox Nation can now sit back and enjoy the rest of the season.
