“A couple of pops by Big Papi lifted the Red Sox over the Rays, 5-4, on September 12. He drove in all of Boston’s runs with a three-run shot in the third inning and a two-run game-ender (his 10th since moving to Beantown in 2003) in the ninth. The last was a misjudged fly that barely cleared a low wall.”
After a disappointing 2009 season where he batted .238, Big Papi is off to an even more disappointing start in 2010. He’s batting only .171 so far this season. Did you know he also has a public website and Facebook page?
And the excellent defensive player Ryan Langerhans, who can’t seem to hit above the Mendoza line offensively. He’s going into my Nationals binder.
