Red Sox have started to get their :censored: together now. Seems like the hangover may finally be wearing off. 

Thankfully baseball is a long ass season so they have time to make up all that ground they lost. 

 

In other Red Sox related news, Kimbrel has signed with The Cubs.

... and the Phillies lose yet another good reliever, this time to Tommy John surgery.  Team has no chance of staying on top of the Braves for more than another week.  Team is a freaking mess, and the manager got into a shouting match with a radio host (the manager was right, IMO, and the host was an idiot.)  

 

Jay Bruce has been on absolute fire since being acquired, but eventually it'll wear off and McCutchen's loss will be very noticeable.

Who was the radio host? Please tell me it was Cataldi.

Reports are coming out of the Dominican Republic that David Ortiz was shot in an armed robbery attempt. Multiple people are alleged to have been shot outside of a nightclub he and a few friends were at.

 

No further information about his condition is known at this time.

I can't confirm for sure. But a lot are saying he was shot in the leg, so not life threatening if the report is accurate.

Those are the reports I am hearing as well, which is encouraging if true.

By “confirming” and “hearing” youz each mean “read on twitter like the rest of us”... or are you wired into foreign law enforcement channels?

Hopefully it's not too serious. 

 

Big Papi's a tough old guy, He'll make it though. 

 

The reports about him being shot in the leg were incorrect. He was shot in the lower back/abdomen area and had to undergo surgery last night.

 

The good news is he’s out of surgery, and it looks like he will be okay.

 

There is also a video allegedly showing the shooting. I won’t post it here due to its graphic nature, but it shows Ortiz sitting at a an outdoor table with a guy walking right up to him from behind and opening fire.

He is in stable condition, but he had damage to his kidneys and intestine. When you watch the vid it didn’t look like a robbery. Dude gets of his bike and just walks behind ortiz who was eating, pulls out his gun and shoots him at point blank range and runs off. Looks like a hit to me.

Also liver, colon, and Gaul bladder damage. With everything the bullet tore apart I’m surprised they were able to get him into stable condition so quickly. Luckily the DR people and Dr. took amazing care of him getting him to the hospital.

That's really good to hear. 

 

The edit part where he’s in stable condition. Not the shooting part.

The latest on the Ortiz shooting is that at least one of the suspects is claiming it was a case of mistaken identity.

 

This would seem to make sense on the surface, as $8,000 seems like a paltry sum to take out someone of Ortiz’s stature.

With how well known he is, I have a hard time believing Ortiz of all people could be mistaken for anyone, especially in the DR. 

 

I've heard something about him having an affair with some mob boss's girlfriend, but that sound like tabloid BS to me. 

Time always tells.

Yankees need Starting pitching, so what do that do?

Trade for Edwin Encarnacion of course. 

 

Because having a 7th guy on the roster that can hit 30 HR is such a huge need for them. 😂

They traded a pitching prospect for him as well. Do they just think they can power their way through the playoffs?
