    It is really really really hard not to like this guy!!! Get the F out of Boston and find a place where you are appreciated.

      Agreed. They do say animals are great judges of character.

    Better guy than some of his teammates.

    Soapbox moment: Every child should be taught how to swim!

    We dont need a Frank Robinson situation circa 1966

      Some down-thumbers might not know that Robinson, a great athlete, one of our greatest ballplayers ever, had never learned how to swim and nearly drowned in a pool during a backyard party.

      I think that he’s at Discovery cove in Orlando, where that’s standard issue.

    The newest candidate for the Boston managerial job.

    Sure he speaks in chirps and whistles, but he still has better communication skills than Bobby V.

    Did Ortiz taje the first flight out of Boston after the 14-2 drubbing to get to a place with palm trees and dolphins?

    No wonder the Red Sox got destroyed in the final game, they all had travel plans they were looking forward to
