After his heroics in the 2004 ALCS, Ortiz sat in the home dugout at Fenway Park on the day before the start of the World Series. Asked what the difference was in Boston by a couple of Minnesota sportswriters, Ortiz used a graphic description to say the Twins wanted him to hit like a weakling.
Maybe that was it. Maybe “Big Papi” would never have surfaced in Minnesota. But the fact the Twins didn’t give him a full shot, never found out if he was worth at least one multiyear contract in the middle of the last decade, remains an abomination every time we watch him in October.
Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
