Chris Villani talks Red Sox concerns with 8 days left until Opening Day and the David Ortiz Player's Tribune steroid defense
the stories to kind of breezed through quickly that this situation which Shane Victorino could not have been worked contacted story if they tried and made it. Victory no express something that he's expressed many times in the past asked by Philadelphia Daily News reporter would like to have Cole Hamels he's played them before he knows him. Nosy top of the rotation I said yeah. It be great. And to spin that somehow owing to. Dias towards smoky bats or wanting him to gist. Did get rid of that one and a Red Sox to move on from that clear roster spot was disingenuous. At best and don't think that was even close to what Shane Victorino was trying to save by.

This conversation that wasn't really happening at the time he restarts this dialogue. And this attacked it's ever present and it's the as I called it a few minutes of the low hanging fruit. For people are just predispose not to like David Ortiz to reach out and grab. And that's all well and good but why give them something new to yell about why put yourself out there and that sent David Ortiz actually reminded here of a little bit of Starbucks and that raced together campaign that they put together.
