    • 4/29/16: Papi's go-ahead homer lifts Red Sox to win over Yankees

      
      The players get along — even Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz these days. The teams haven't been good at the same time in a while. The faces have changed and ones that remain prefer business over personal.

      And Friday night probably did as much to reinvigorate the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry as a microwave does for filet mignon.

      Still, there were glimpses of the old days, the clearest Ortiz's two-run, go-ahead home run in the eighth inning that sank that Yankees, 4-2, before an announced sell-out crowd of 37,115 at Fenway Park.

      The defeat meant the Yankees squandered another good Masahiro Tanaka start and lost for the fourth time in five games.

      And while it may be too soon to watch the standings too closely, it's hard to ignore that the Yankees (8-13) were shoved deeper into the American League East cellar. They trail first-base Baltimore, which won Friday, by six games.




      TURNING POINT


      Ortiz, who will retire at season's end, has spent his career haunting the Yankees. It continued when he deposited reliever Dellin Betances' hanging 83-mph curveball over the wall in left-center field. The blast drew huge cheers from the Red Sox faithful, which changed into a chant that started with Yankees Suck.

          • Has Hal sold the team yet? I'm avoiding the newspaper... sportscenter... the ballpark... YES network... :clown:

            BTW, I had to avoid BBF for a bit... and prevent any stupid wagers on my behalf before the season started.

                • Could retire having his best season EVER!




                  And here Ortiz is, halfway home in his swan song, with a .332 average, second behind only Houston's Jose Altuve (.341).
                  But the Red Sox don't pay Ortiz to hit for average. They pay him for production, and he leads the Major Leagues in doubles (34), slugging percentage (.682), OPS (1.108) and extra-base hits (57).
                  The home run allowed Ortiz to break his own team record for the most extra-base hits prior to the All-Star break, one he set back in 2004.
                  "He did everything but record an out in the field," Red Sox lefty David Price said. "He's done everything, even with a couple of triples and stolen bases. It is pretty special. Even when he gets out, he hits the ball hard. It's been fun to watch. We just hope he keeps it going."
                  For Ortiz, this is 40.
                  "Maybe people will stop thinking playing at 40 is bad," Ortiz said. "It's good. I'm fine. I feel like I'm 30. I feel good right now."
                  Ortiz doesn't seem to be slowing down. The homer on Sunday -- a two-run shot over the Green Monster -- was his third in the last four games.
                  "You know me," Ortiz said. "I'm always better in the second half."
                  Why would the Red Sox doubt him after the way he has hit all season?
                  "It was great," said right fielder Mookie Betts, another Red Sox All-Star. "Can't ask for anything more. He did everything, plus some. I think we all know that he's going to continue to do what he always does."
                  Backed by Ortiz, the Red Sox are 49-38 and just two games back in the American League East.

                  • AL Wild Card update




                    I think, {or hope}, the American League Wild Card will come from the East Division.

                          Sure, the first time in 2 years the Sox are out of the cellar and you go into hibernation. You "SUX"!
