Fallout 4 is set in Boston, so some creative soul named Richie Branson created a David Ortiz mod, and gave players the chance to bash baddies in a full Red Sox uniform. (Kindly overlook the fact that Big Papi’s actually a lefty.) It was a neat, free customization, but MLB was not as receptive.
David Ortiz became the 27th member of the 500 home run club Saturday night, belting a solo shot off of Matt Moore in the 5th inning to right field.
David Ortiz took a second to mess with a couple of his former teammates, as the Yankees clobbered the Red Sox last night. Big Papi wiggled his fingers at Stephen Drew and called out to Jacoby Ellsbury with a “Hey, rich bitch!”—likely a reference to the 7-year, $153 million contract that lured Ellsbury to New York.
Deadspin readers have overwhelmingly demanded to know what it would look like if various major leaguers had pitcher Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes. In the interest of service to you, the reader, we present various major leaguers with Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes.
David Ortiz is a designated hitter who only really plays first base in interleague contests away from Fenway. Tonight, the Red Sox were in Cincinnati, which sports a decent amount of foul territory by first base. David Ortiz moved his legs, one in front of the other, at a higher rate of speed than normal, and…
Rays pitcher Chris Archer is not backing down from his dumb criticism of David Ortiz's bat flip from Sunday's game. And this time, like a true Salty Old Baseball Man, Archer is name-dropping poor Hank Aaron to make his point.
David Ortiz's three-run home run would be all the Red Sox needed in yesterday's 3-2 win over Tampa. But he couldn't have known that at the time—it was the third inning—yet Ortiz flipped his bat like he had just won a game, setting off yet another war of words with the Rays.
David Ortiz hit his 450th home run late last month, moving him to 37th on the career home runs list. There's no doubt Ortiz has had a great career. But his are home runs in an era of home runs—and performance enhancers. He blends into his environment, that is to say. Since home runs were more infrequent in earlier…
For whatever reason, David Ortiz hates it when you bring up that he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003 (a fact confirmed by the union). The latest target of his ire: MLB Network hosts who declared he has received a "free pass" for his transgression.
David Ortiz recently blamed the Cubs' consistent inability to win games on the team's penchant for scheduling day games. "When you come down to the Cubs' schedule it's a game-changer, believe it or not," Ortiz said. "They play so many day games at home and then they have to travel to another city and adjust themselves…
Some might say this was another dick move by Ortiz, walking to first before actually being walked. I would not! Last night's 2-1 Cubs win somehow took 3:35, and I am in favor of anything that makes Red Sox games shorter.
David Ortiz hit a game-tying home run in extra innings last night. In the clubhouse after the game, he didn't want to talk about that. He wanted to complain about a seventh-inning ground ball that glanced off the glove of first-baseman Joe Mauer and was ruled an error.
The Red Sox and Rays cleared the benches last night which, by itself, is barely worth mentioning but then someone put a microphone in front of David Ortiz's face after the game. Ortiz was not very happy with Tampa's ace David Price, who plunked him with the very first pitch Ortiz saw since hitting two home runs off…
This is from Wednesday's game, a David Ortiz home run that was retrieved by a girl in the first row. When the girl made it clear she had no intentions of tossing the ball back onto the field, the woman in red let the girl know to her face what she thought of that decision.
Yu Darvish was perfect through the seventh inning against the Red Sox last night until David Ortiz hit a routine pop-up into shallow right field. It fell between Alex Rios and Rougned Odor and was officially ruled an error, thus preserving a no-hitter. For two innings the baseball world sat on the precipice of a …
Upon several viewings of Bartolo Colon's hilarious plate appearances, the Deadspin staff discussed what baseball would be like if every player looked like the husky Mets hurler. Or, really, just fat. So here's some recent MLB highlights where we made all the baseball players fat. Video's above, GIFs are below.
Thanks to our friends at Tater Trot Tracker, who have been timing home run trots for years now, we know that nobody takes his time getting around the bases quite like David Ortiz does.
Red Sox designated hitter/style icon David Ortiz, who's in the last year of his contract and coming off his best regular season since his mid-aughts prime and an all-time postseason run, has made it clear this winter that he wants money. The world's response has mainly been, "Well, the Red Sox should give him money."…
