ESPN Boston is reporting that David Ortiz and the Red Sox are working on adding a season to his contract. Prior to last season, Big Papi signed a 2-year deal through this coming season that included an incentive for the 2014 for spending fewer than 20 days on the disabled list, according to ESPN Boston. Ortiz is coming off a huge postseason in which he hit .353 with 5 home runs and 13 RBI's, and a .688 World Series average, which earned him the World Series MVP.
I think most of us would love to see David finish his career out in Boston after he was such a huge part of all 3 World Series victories, and of course his famous speech following the Marathon bombings. He is a Red Sox legend, and should be in consideration for the Hall of Fame. And it would be great if he could finish out his career here.
