However, in retrospect, alongside the season-ending aggravation was the season-long joy that...

David Ortiz Was A Constant

I was raised on David Ortiz. I’ve been around for 21 years, and David Ortiz has been a significant part of 13 of those. I am almost numb to the knowledge that his career is over, and the reason for that is obvious: I literally have never known a Red Sox team without him on it. I don’t know what that will look and feel like. One of my oldest sports-related memories is staying...
