IN PROGRESS: Red Sox v. That Orange County LA Team

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio indeed.

David Ortiz's line: 0 for 5 - 3Ks - 8 LOB

Bringing his total number of home runs this season to 0.0. (Less than a number of pitchers). I've always been a fan, but how long will FoSoSG (Friend of Sons of Steve Garvey) Erin and the rest of the Beantown faithful wait before treating the slugger with the same warmth and kindness that New Yorkers have shown Mark Teixeira?

0 for 7. 12 LOB (just grounded out with bases loaded) Tough day at the office.

Today was painful. I'm frustrated, but I don't think I could ever boo David Ortiz. 2004 was the best year of my life, thanks in no small part to that man. I can't just forget that.

I often tell of the one Sox/Yanks playoff game that went so long, I...

1. Watched it on MLB gameday at work
2. Listened to it on my car radio
3. Watched it at some pizza joint
4. Checked the score on my phone repeatedly during a meeting

And that was all Ortiz. His quote after the game tonight was kind of heartbreaking. We need More Big, Less Papi!

Is this game still in progress?

Man, that is a long game, indeed.

As others pointed out, 0-for-7, the first such game of his career.
