Tougher Steriod Testing Exposing "Stars"

Even with the terrible year he is having, David Ortiz had a historically bad outing for the Red Sox yesterday.
Ortiz went 0 for 7 and stranded 12 runners—tying Trot Nixon’s team record — as his average plummeted to .208. The five-time All-Star dressed slowly while facing his corner locker, then turned around and saw a swarm of reporters surrounding him before saying: “Sorry, guys. I don’t feel like talking today. Just put down, `Papi stinks.”’

Ortiz has gone 144 at-bats since his last home run on Sept. 22 against Cleveland’s Zach Jackson at Fenway Park. He is one at-bat from equaling his longest dry spell in the majors.
Hmmmm. Now, what on earth could be the problem Papi?


  1. The same could be said of BJ Ryan, the Jay's closer. He was an all star at one point and mysteriously his game has hit the crapper for quite sometime now. He's lost his closing duties in Toronto and they will make him middle relief somewhere in the rotation. Also, just two years ago he had a big neck and larger build than he has now. Apart from a minor injury here or there this doesn't add up.

  2. I watched Ryan pitch a little a few nights ago. What an odd delivery. His arm seems stiff.
