– *ORTIZ FOUND GUILTY*
I could make this post generic: Bash the Red Sox, downplay thier World Series rings – but I’m a man of respect. I’d be lieing if I said that Boston is trash…
Today it was revealed that “Big Papi” was found ‘guilty’ of using PED’s. If you’ve been living under a rock, the last big name caught up in the steroid scandal was none other than Manny Ramirez, former teamate of Ortiz – and fellow homerun sultan. One could assume that the juicing of these powerhouses has everything to do with the Red Sox recent success – but how should Yankee fans really react to the bombshell story at hand?
We should react like intelligent people. Everytime a new name is dropped in this steroid era we’re witnessing, it’s all too easy to forget about the last man thrown under the bus. Before Ortiz came Manny, and before Manny came A-Rod. The problem at hand stems far deeper than just the Boston/New York rivalry, so what I’m suggesting is: use your head. I’ve read numerous blogs at this point that fire shots at Ortiz, but how foolish can you be? It’s only a matter of time before every team has a name drop – so keep it cool and watch your opinions.
