Phone company repairmen Gomes, Dempster to the rescue

David Ortiz is apparently not a fan of land lines. Or Tim Timmons.

Thank goodness Big Papi has a couple of teammates to come to the rescue.

It is unclear if Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster actually double as working for Verizon during the day, but the duo were out in full force to fix the dugout phone that Ortiz smashed with his bat Saturday night.

The entire account was captured on camera by NESN’s Jenny Dell. It was reported that after fixing the phone, Gomes and Dempster tested the line with a few calls, with Gomes asking Dempster, “Can you hear me OK?”

Take a look for yourself.
