Papi Don't Preach

Reader Melissa H. sends along a note about David Ortiz's recently released book:
Heh, see the snipe at CHB in the review of David Ortiz's new book? :)
Before we get to that, let's take a peek at the beginning of the column:
The first page of the introduction to “Papi’’ summarizes the significance of David Ortiz, according to David Ortiz. He says he would one day “accumulate more home runs, hits, runs scored, and runs batted in than any DH in history.” Beyond that, “I cursed terrorists and spoke up for freedom without fear.”

Thus runs Ortiz’s freewheeling, insider memoir, written with the help of longtime sports journalist and radio personality Michael Holley. Two warnings: Those who prefer their profanities out of earshot might consider covering their eyes through parts of this book and those looking for a salacious tell-all will be disappointed.
Now, then - what kind of a beta male pansy would get his knickers in a twist over a few F-bombs?
Bill Littlefield hosts NPR’s “Only A Game” on WBUR. His most recent book is “Take Me Out” from Zephyr Press.
Oh, an NPR / WBUR kind of pansy / snob!

Anyway, let's get back to some Shank bashing!
It’s no surprise that Ortiz resents the sportswriters who asked him about performance-enhancing drugs (which he vehemently denies ever using), particularly the Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy, “that [expletive] still walks around like he owns the team.”
There may be more to Papi's criticism of Shank; since this clown Littlefield's writing for the Globe, that's all we'll get for now on any criticism of a Globe employee.
