  • Should the Bosox Pick Up Papi's Option for 2016?

    Looks like Ortiz will reach 600 PAs this year, which bumps the cost of his '16 team option up to $16million, if I understand it correctly.
    Papi has rallied to have a great season...my heart says pick it up...my brain says that they would be CRAZY to keep him at that price.
    This team needs to rebuild and having a 40 year old Papi at DH does nothing to help that process.
    Like Theo said, you can't just fall in love with one player...of course we love Papi, anyway...but we should let him go and have a younger team.


    As long as he promises to not sign with the Yanks.

    I hope the Red Sox pick up his option. If not I'm sure some other team will sign him

      I guarantee that the Yanks would sign him just to tick the RSN off.
      I'm sure he'd love that short porch in right.

          Given Chase Headley's less than stellar offensive performance this season, the Yanks can just move ARod back to 3B.

          You're right, of course...my comments about Papi and the Yanks were more or less tongue in cheek.
          I doubt that those two (ARod and Papi) would be amenable to platooning...

              2015 2nd Half Stats: 21 HR 58 RBI's .313 AVG 1.070 OPS

              9 HR's in the last 4 weeks. I think Ortiz understands how to correct hitting mistakes and adjusts well because he makes good use of his time as the DH. He's one of the best 39-year old hitters and will be back. Maybe sit against some lefties next year?

                I think they made the right choice.

                  Off hand, I'd say take a chance and keep him for 2016.
