David Ortiz: super agent

Sep 10, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

Jon Paul Morosi gives us some insight into the negotiating mind of David Ortiz. Big Papi on Rays’ closer Rafael Soriano:

“That’s the one guy they have to make sure they keep — for the next
year, the next five years,” Ortiz said. “You can’t get no better than
that. I’m telling you right now, that guy, any team that needs a closer
for the next five years should go there.

As Morosi notes, the last closer to get five years was B.J. Ryan, and that sure as heck didn’t work out too well.  One wonders if Papi has a similarly inflated impression of his own worth.

    Somewhere, Jonathan Papelbon shed a tear.

    Papi had better worry about his own contract . The boy blunder (Theo) has made some mistakes , but one mistake he won’t make is giving Papi 12 mil. next year.

    Who cares what Ortiz has to say about anything?
