FROM FENWAY TO THE RUNWAY

The Sox dropped a toughie last night in Kansas City, so instead of dwelling, I’d rather share something much more fun this week about the Sox’s big slugger, David Ortiz.

You see, it appears that Mr. Ortiz has been really enjoying this season as much as we have, and that includes each of the 21 home runs he’s launched all year long. There, in fact, is a website dedicated to giving the ol’ stopwatch treatment to the admiration of home run trotting big hitters like Big Papi.

And none have a track record of trotting quite like the Big Father, who, to date in 2013, has eight of the ten slowest home run trots on the season.

Take your time, David. We’re enjoying this season too much, too.
