The Big Papi is heating up, just as every manager who has owned him has started to give up! You can thank ESPN and the media for that! He's only 33!!!! So what if he's off to a bad start?! Yeah, there's always the possibility of steroids but all these fantasy baseball websites and experts are getting a little crazy here. He's not done! Let's be realistic people.
What could be the reason the Big Papi is slumping so much? Duh! There's no Manny Ramirez hitting behind him. He's had that for years, now suddenly its gone and Papi hasn't adjusted....well, up until now maybe! He suffered the wrist injury that he clearly didn't recover fully from last season, then he lost Manny, and then got off to a terrible start this year. Well, so has Lance Berkman. So has Chien-Ming Wang. So has Jose Reyes. So has Grady Sizemore. Maybe not as bad as Ortiz, but they haven't been as good as expected.
I said it a few weeks ago, David Ortiz will be the Carlos Delgado of 2009 and Ortiz is 4 or 5 years younger than Delgado!
Anyway, don't give up on Ortiz! He's got 8 hits in his last 7 games including 3HR. That's the start and now is a good time to think about giving the Big Papi a chance. I'm not saying to go out and trade any top players for him but you could get him activated and hope he continues to hit and get out of his funk. This is the time where you can grab him and still buy low. I'm telling you, everyone has given up on this guy!
