Yankee fans are having a field day with this one

Yankee fans are pointing to the spike in his HR totals in 2003 as compared to 2002. The Twins did not want him swinging for the fences, they wanted him to be hitting singles and playing small ball. Upon arrival in Boston, they said swing away. That's why he started hitting more home runs.

Yes, it is a sad day in Red Sox Nation. I like Papi as much as any other fan. I've read his autobiography and was impressed by his integrity and his many other positive qualities. I will reserve final judgement of him after he does his research to find out what the substance was that got him on 'the list.' One thing is certain, he will talk, he will come clean, and it won't be some half assed dog 'n pony show like A-Rod or that other former Yankee.

David Ortiz is no Roger Clemens.

I could not care less. Steroids were a blight upon the game, but find me a season since 1990 not tainted by them. There were guys on those Yankee teams in the 90s who were juiced out of their minds. Every winning team had at least one if not ten guys in the same boat. Enough already. Play ball.

Here here! I couldn't agree more. We disliked those guys way before the steroids, that was just icing on the cake. This is a shame but I'm willing to reserve judgment for now. He deserves as much.

Fuck the mother fucking Skankees and their long list of already-confirmed cheaters. They've got no room to talk.
