Big Papi getting his groove back
We finally have more than a very isolated example to think that maybe, just maybe, David Ortiz is finally morphing back into David Ortiz.
Two nights after belting a prodigious homer into the center field seats, Papi just launched a Monster Mash against CC Sabathia. It wasn’t one of those lazy flyballs either. Ortiz crushed it.
And yes, he got his fourth curtain call in as many homers this season. A new tradition has been built here at Fenway.
By the way, Penny’s velocity appears to be the best it’s been all season. What an intriguing situation to see what happens once Smoltz is activated. Oh, by the way, Smoltz got rained out tonight. He’ll be back at it in Syracuse tomorrow.
