    Last 3 games

    He is 5/12 (.416) over the last 3 games, and 9/32 (.281) over the last 7. I'll take 281 from Papi any season. His average isn't going to come up to 280 in a couple of days, it takes a while. But it looks to me like for the past week he's doing just what we expect......

    He had the game tying single tonight and scored the go-ahead run on Manny Ramirez's 496th Home Run so he's getting farther out of it...

    I was listening to the Yankees telecast the other day, and Michael Kay mentioned David Ortiz saying that he know he was going to struggle after going to Japan. Big Papi said he went to Japan a few years ago as part of a Major League all-star team, and it took a while to get back to feeling normal.

    Al Leiter, now the Yankees color commentator, said that Mike Mussina went to Japan a few seasons ago, and he brought peanut butter and bread with him so he didn't have to leave his hotel room the entire time except to go to the stadium to pitch.

    2 last night after Hank gets the jersey out of his stadium. Papi's on his way back. He goes deep tonight.

    Next time, bury a jersey from a player who isn't active, guys.

    Why no.

    Did Ortiz high five the air like a rookie does when he hit his first home-run?

    Does that mean that the Teamsters Union will do better if they find, and dig up Jimmy Hoffa?

    I just don't like how people keep brushing it off as "he'll work out of it"
    The more you are in a slump - the lower your confidence, and more you try to "push it" the deeper you get into the slump.
    Like quicksand ("The Replacements" anybody? )

    I think he would do with a few days off just practicing, watching videos and seeing what he's doing wrong

    I agree with hellborn - the fans in Fenway are pretty free with their booing, but anybody who booed Big Papi at this early stage of a possible slump would get battered by the fans who appreciate what he's done over the years.

    It's kind of reminiscent of a few years ago when Jeter was batting under.200 as late as May 25th. He bounced back though and ended up finishing at .292. Slumps happen even to the best of players. Assuming Ortiz is health, things will pick up, likely sooner than later.
