"Are they gonna be forgiven to Sammy Sosa? Will he be a guy who's going to you know that's when he got the mini kid, you know a brother was right there. Well, I'm not Dominican, but I see what you're saying. What should I say? Latino, Latino. You would say Latina. Dominicans. For me, not that far away. You know, you are just saying that. I'm just teasing you a light skinned brother. You a brother of color, right? I know. I just love how screaming you get when I remind you how Latino I am, you know? You become Latina only when it comes to, oh, I can't say Davis or T I can't say big part. You really, yeah. What I'm talking about. When I was talking about my love, my love for when I had to say that. You see, this is the thing. You mixed me with the Dominican culture because of my love for those past Red Sox team. That's what it is. You forget how great those moments were, but it's all right, I'll remind you I remind from time to time. I don't think I don't see those moments in me and not great. I think they're a great movie. But if you're going to have David Ortiz said, you know, I think that bonds and David are, you know, you can argue a lot, but it was widely rumored that David Ortiz was involved also during that era. He was on anonymous list. Let's just give the specifics. Yes. He said, lawyer. It was the fact that he was mentioned. I didn't say he did it. Object your honor. Mitchell on that list, object, your honor. Okay. I got you. You know, prosecution risks, all right? You know what max, what I'm saying? Actually, it's worse. You know, it's not a rumored, it was he was on a list. You're right. It was he was on anonymous list. But unlike those other guys, he didn't test positive. They didn't have positive results connected to David Ortiz, but he was on that list. You're right. But I'll be honest with you, max. I'm happy for teas. I think it was the right thing that happened, but I don't know. A part of me, I was excited to see the video and his reaction. I was happy for him, I should say. And I was like, was he really crossing his fingers like that? I always saw David cheese has to be the guy to say, look, I should get it. I'm confident I should get in, but I guess this past or at least 24 hours before the moment or 48 hours before the moment, he was nervous. He wasn't quite sure if he would get that 75% that he needed or the voters did to get it. And of course, he got in just under 79%. Well, I think that yeah, I think you look at baseball riders who they are. And people, you know, isn't a dad trying to see that, you know, David. You say he was able to teach whether an asshole? And that's a guy that we know that he didn't, I don't know if he got him for the first ballad of the night and so here in Boston, this just really, it's really funny when you think about baseball players, you don't think about basketball players. You don't think about guys in hockey, you don't think about guys, playing football, and you know that those same kind of drugs had to be in all those sports. Well, let me ask you this then. Is it a popularity contest?.

"Yeah, you said it, man. And then you look at that video of him when he found out about it being official, then the way they tell him, hey, welcome to cooperstown. You know, David Ortiz, you know, they only got to make it incredible moment. I can imagine that was going through his mind. You know, right before that, definitely. It had to be incredible, but I'm just. And I love that picture was really sad for, you know, for bonds for Clemens, you know, going down the line of guys who didn't make it who were great players. Bare bones was a great player in his own home rack. Steroid issues or whatever happened he was. Kurt Schilling, I have no idea why Kurt Schilling did her feelings as pissed some people off that you would think about him not being the Hall of Famer. That's interesting. We never talked about Kurt Schilling much, right? Because we always talked about we've had the previous episodes. We talked about Bond and you've had a strong stand. You've always said that within this ten year window, you would love to see him get in. And this is it, that window is closed. Obviously, Roger Clemens is in that, in that same conversation because of PDs and because of the history with drug use, but that's not the case with cursed chilling. You know, crystalline, yeah, to what you just said, he pissed off the wrong people, the wrong groups that a lot of offensive things and it's carried over to the committee and the Hall of Fame or at least the people who are voting. But let me ask you something max. So do you think this is something that you should mostly be mad at the voting process or are you just mad overall at the basal writers that still wouldn't let them in? That's really funny that you would say that I happen to be and I think I told you before during the autograph show probably about two months ago in Chicago. My back on my birthday. And I'm going to Chicago out of Boston and I see the gentleman get up. I said, really, he looks familiar. And then I look at him coming back. I said, damn. We're both in first class. I says Pete Rose. And I get up here. He got the plane and, you know, I'm tall trying to get my bags off. He's behind me saying my job, big Philly, my hit your head. And when I said that, I said, mister rose, I said, nice meeting you. My name is Cedric Maxwell. He's like, cornbread. Oh, man, you was a bad man. It made me think like damn, I know that I know that dude probably had to bet on me sometimes. So it was just kind of fascinating that I would see him at that time. Also, I saw Jose conseco was there another guy who probably isn't gonna get in, but, you know, was a tremendous baseball player, but it was an era that was full of a bunch of stuff that you look at it and you know is Maguire? Is he gonna go in? Are people gonna be forgiving to him?.

"If I'm wrong. I'll come on and apologize, but I don't think I'm gonna be wrong. Okay, we should come on and yell. You should come on and throw it fit. If he doesn't get in. I will. And I have a special guest lined up for next week to discuss David Ortiz. So that is a tease for next week's Red Sox beat podcast. How about that Alex? Is that good there you go. All right, we want to get real quick to a list that I think we talked about the past for the last 30 minutes on this podcast. I want to talk about four Red Sox prospects name to baseball America's top 100 list. You know, look, when the lockout finally does end Alex, I think the Red Sox have a bright, bright future lined up in their minor league farm system. And I want to get to for the prospects that as you pointed out to me, made this top 100 list and guys that some of whom have already dipped their toe on the waters already with the Red Sox and some waiting to make their mark. We're going to start with shortstop Marcelo mayor. He is 15th on the list, then first baseman Tristan cassis, 19th overall. Coming up next is second baseman Nick York. He's number 31. And of course Red Sox fans know very well that outfielder Jaron durand made his major league debut this past year. He comes in only at 91. But those four players, what is your biggest takeaway on each of them? Alex. So I think with mayor, just the fact that he came in and he played well in the complex league he's really young. Even for high school pick he's pretty young. So to see him come in and have some level of success is encouraging. The expectations are so high again. He was labeled as the top player in that track class. He went forth. So I think you have to be excited about that. He's too far away to make grandiose predictions off of what he did playing whatever it is, 35, 40 games. Right. But, you know, you kind of see why a lot of people were upset. The Red Sox didn't get Jack later and, you know, who is this random high school shortstop? They saw lighter in the college World Series all of that. I think you get an idea, this kid's legit. He's a top 20 prospect in baseball. Baseball America knows what they're doing. I think it's just kind of reinforces the concept that how well that draft went for the Red Sox. 19 Tristan casses, I'm hoping we see him this year. I really am. He kind of had an up and down year last year..

"A lot, a lot more to David Ortiz's story and why he is to me a slam dunk for cooperstown in 2022. The number one moment in my mind and I think it sticks out in the minds of a lot of Boston Red Sox fans, especially in the city of Boston, was what he did on April 20th, 2013, when first responders and the Watertown police department were being recognized for how they handled the two day shutdown after the Boston city excuse me after the Boston Marathon bombing back on April 13th. And I think what he was able to do and the way he was able to galvanize not just Red Sox fans, but the city of Boston, this is our effing city. And for him to say, and obviously he did not say epping, he actually said the word. We'll keep it family friendly here. This is our effing city. To me, that defines David Ortiz. And that is saying something considering he's the best clutch hitter in the history of Major League Baseball. That's not hyperbole. That's just the way it is. Anybody who watched his 18 year career starting with the twins back in the early 2000s and ending in 2016 with the Red Sox knows that he is the greatest clutch hitter they've ever seen. But the way he galvanized people, I already brought up the moment he galvanized the Red Sox and the dug out in St. Louis and game four of the 2013 World Series. But earlier in that season on April 20th, 2013, David Ortiz was a lot about a lot more than just baseball on that day. And the way galvanized the city, I keep using that word, but I think it's the perfect word for him. Really stuck out in the fans and endeared him to not only Red Sox fans and not only baseball fans, but endeared him to anybody who really felt that Boston had been attacked and you think you're going to make us cower screw off. And that was the perfect time, the perfect moment. David Ortiz against the Kansas City Royals before that game. And even the royals stood up on the edge of their dugout in awe of what the man was doing. Yeah, I mean, he just captured the tone of the moment so perfectly. And you know, you know you kind of got it right when the FCC came out and the FCCs are pretty stingy organization. They really don't let a lot slide and they were like, that's fine. He's good. We're not gonna find anybody for that. So yeah, I have the shirt. This is our all of that. It was a defining moment for the city. You know, forget a defining moment for the Red Sox. You talk about what a big moment it was. Here we are talking about the guy who, like you said, the greatest clutch hitter of all time who, you know, played a huge part in ending the curse. One of the biggest grand slams and.

"But you can also follow him on Twitter at real Alex barth. All right, back with David Ortiz and the top 5 David Ortiz moments before we do that, I want to go over some amazing statistics. And I'm sure you're very aware of these. Alex. And why I think it's a no brainer that David Ortiz next Tuesday winds up being announced as the, as a part of the cooperstown 2022 class. His career averages. He hit two 86 for his career. He had 541 home runs. He had 1700 over 1700 RBIs. And his career, this is staggering. His career, OBP. I mean, excuse me, OPS. Was 9, 31. Want to know something even more staggering? At the age of 40, his last year in 2016, do you know the numbers Alex? It's over one. I don't remember exactly what it is, but it's the second or third highest of his career. Yeah. It is the well, that's a great question. It is the third highest of his career. He had a 1.066 in 2007 and 1.049 in 2006. He had a 1.021 OPS in 2016, his final year in Major League Baseball at the age of 40. To me, what's even more amazing? He had a league high 48 doubles. He had 38 bombs, and he drove in a 127 RBIs. That is also fourth highest in his career. He had single season highs of a 148 in 2005. He had a 137 in 2006, sitting at a 139 in 2004. A 127 RBIs at the age of 40 in his last four seasons in Major League Baseball. He drove over a hundred drove in over a hundred runs in each and every single season. To me, that is just astounding. Obviously we get to the postseason and his numbers are almost as staggering. His OPS in 85 postseason games, Alex. 9 47. In those 85 postseason games he had 17 home runs and 61 RBIs. Now I've not had the time to break down how many game winning RBIs he had in game winning hence walk offs and whatnot in Major League Baseball. History, but still it's astounding. And I think for those just based on those numbers alone, the man's getting into the Hall of Fame..

"But why would you walk somebody to get to David Ortiz, he's going to win the game and two pitches later he won the game and the reason that moment stuck with me like, all right, David Ortiz hit a walk off a run. When he rounded the base and he came home, they ripped his Jersey off. Do you remember what it said on the back of his T-shirt? And in that moment? No. No, I don't. Famous, famous as, I don't know if I can say it. Famous as F and like a picture of him flexing, like a silhouette of him flexing over those words. And it was just like, oh man, he let him know. Like there was some talk at that point that he might be dipping or whatever, and I think we were starting to talk about his heels, maybe being an issue, his feet being an issue. And that to me was just like a superhuman moment of, you know, we talked about this with Tom Brady Wyatt. Everybody in the building knew what was about to happen. Yep. It wasn't a guarantee, but it almost was. And then the T-shirt to me kind of put it over the top because it was like, yeah, I'm David F and Ortiz. This is what I do. I always loved that moment. It was just such a big, like it was just such a big middle finger to everybody that's just like, yeah, I can do this. What of it? It was so cool. I loved that. I thought that he did it all with a smile and that encapsulated really who and what David Ortiz was all about. Number four for me. Down 5 one bottom of the 8th game two of the American League championship series in 2013. Then on the mound for the Detroit tigers, bases loaded and David Ortiz drives a change up on a two strike count. Over the right field wall, the famous iconic image now of Tory hunter going ass over tea kettle into the bullpen with the Boston police officer looking on raising his hands. Tied the game. There was no doubt in anybody's mind. At that point, the Red Sox not only I thought, were going to win that game, they were going to win the series. It was just such a monumentally huge moment for David Ortiz to tie a game when you're down 5 one and you're down one game to nothing to Justin Verlander and the tigers going back to Detroit. That single moment in that series in that season define David Ortiz in 2013 in the postseason in the postseason. You have that at four. Yeah, that's correct. I do. I just, just wait,.

"Hey everybody, it is drags and I am back along with the one and only Alex barth for another edition of Red Sox beat. On this episode, I'm looking forward to this a lot because we don't do lists a lot on the Red Sox beat, but Alex, Alex barth came up with a great idea when we were brainstorming earlier in the week for something new, something different. And he said, how about with David Ortiz almost certainly all due respect to Dan shaughnessy of The Boston Globe? Almost certainly going into the Hall of Fame and the announcement coming out on January 25th next Tuesday. Why don't we do a top 5 all time David Ortiz moments? And I'm like, Alex, I don't respect you a lot, but that is a great idea. That's a spectacular idea. So let's go ahead and do that. We're going to have some fun with this. We're going to bring back a lot of memories a lot of these memories. We were there in person for others. We watched off television, but certainly I think every Red Sox fan that is listening to this and every loyal Red Sox beat listener on seal and S can appreciate the list we're about to do. We'll start with number 5 and I'll go first. To me, his speech in game four of the 2013 World Series is one of those iconic Ortiz leadership moments in the dugout. And the reason this is on the list for me in the top 5 is because of the situation that he surmised and assessed in game four of that World Series. People forget the Red Sox were down two to one, two games to one to the Saint Louis Cardinals. They were in St. Louis. The score was tied one one when Ortiz decided to gather his teammates in the dugout in the 6th inning. The game was getting a little long in the tooth. And according to the reports after the game, Ortiz said, quote, I told them we had been in this situation before and that we had had a better team than we had showed. The game's top and I know we have better hitters than we've shown. I see guys who dominate good pitching and they haven't been able to come through. Yeah, they, the cardinals have a good picture, but they're throwing the ball over the plate. That is the game that was decided by a Johnny Gomes home run, three run Homer, the Red Sox win it four to two..

"And another thing I think it's worth at least thinking about is right now obviously diverse is the guy. They're not going to fool around there. They're not moving endeavors to DH while JD's here. They're not moving in first, but Devers is the guy at third. But if Deborah gets hurt and has to miss a month, who else is going to play third? I think right now if Deborah's gets hurt your third baseman's Bobby dahlbeck. I would agree with you find someone else to stick it first, right? So there's that added value that brings, even though most days, his ability to play third is a non issue, because third base is filled. But the fact that he can do it gives you a little bit of insurance at third base and I think also adds some value to him in the short term for the Red Sox. So yeah, it's an interesting position because all back had a good second half rough first half defense wasn't great. But how much are you really going to invest in first base when arguably the best first base prospect in baseball is sitting in a potentially two months away? So is he on the regular roster coming out of spring training if the Red Sox had there? Brothers, Kristin Cassidy make it. No. I don't think so. Because I think they want him to play triple-A. One thing that cassis has, he, I think everyone universally agrees he has tremendous power potential. He could be 30, 40 Homer guy. But he's never slugged 500 in the minor leagues. He's now, I think, then you see what he does, like in the Olympics, right? He plays 5 games, hits three home runs, all three of them go ahead and owners. I think it's there. And I think they think it's there, but that he is a smart enough young player and a confident enough young player that he has spent the minor leagues honing his hitting, right? Being a I mean, he has a legit two strike approach. He could go up the middle. He does, he has never once tried to just sell out for power and show everyone that he can hit massive home runs. I think that's just in there. And when he I think there's a chance when he gets to a stage when he needs it, he's going to be that guy. But I think you still want to see it. And I think you still wanted to go back to triple-A, get some time. You know, I mean, he's pretty young and mixed in here as a whole minor league season that was lost. It's not the worst for him to get a little bit more development time, especially in triple-A and then especially when high bloom has talked about that he thinks triple-A is a vital step for these guys. You know, in the past under dombrowski, you know, Devers basically skip triple-A, been attende basically skip triple-A. I don't know that we're going to see that very much under high, because he has talked about that he thinks triple-A is a vital step along the way. And so I know I don't think there's much of any chance that cassis makes team out of spring training..

"That is Edgar Martinez. And you got Edgar Martinez in the regular season and then on top of that, you add all of the big Poppins, right? Everything that happened in October, winning rings, this is our effing city. You take all of that stuff and put it on top of Edgar Martinez. Now we've got what I think is a very easy vote in the end. Absolutely. And I think, you know, your point about you can't tell the story without the player is a brilliant one. And I think it really, that kind of quantifies to med Jennings or qualifies to me. What people talk about when they say if you know a Hall of Famer, if you see it, if you have to make any argument for him, he's not a Hall of Famer. Well, with David Ortiz, once you take the whole picture into account with David Ortiz, I don't think there's any doubt. And, you know, I think, you know, his stature at the beginning of his career to the, this is our effing city in 2013. And all of the stuff he did toward the end of his career, he was just so consistent for such a long period of time to me. It was a no brainer. I do want to address your full ballot here. And the other names besides David Ortiz, Bobby Abreu, which you have mentioned, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Todd, Hilton, Andrew Jones, Scott Rowland, Gary Sheffield, Sammy Sosa, Billy Wagner. So with bonds, Clemens and Sosa, why did you put them on there? I've come to think that the steroid era was a failure of everyone. It was allowed to happen in my mind. That's not to say they weren't cheating the game that's not to say that there weren't moral and ethical lines crossed here, but the league and the Players Association let it happen. I mean, they knew what was going on. I just can't so I can not look at this and go, well, they were cheating, but in a sport that was allowing them to do so and celebrating them for doing so. And now retroactively say, well, you tarnished the game. Well, the game was tarnished. So the game was letting itself be tarnished along the way. And then I draw a line between, okay, then the league figures out what's going on here and decides that it's too ugly..
"david ortiz" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"Everybody, it is tracks and this week on Red Sox beat the first one of 2022. I welcome back Chad, Jennings of the athletic. You can follow him on Twitter he does a great job covering the Red Sox, along with Jen McCaffrey, follow him on Twitter at Chad Jennings 22 all one word. Chad, thanks for joining me. You wrote a terrific piece this week on the athletic, explaining your vote for the one and only big poppy. David Ortiz for cooperstown. And you like me, thought it was pretty much a no brainer, but what I liked about your story, Chad, is that you did a great job of extrapolating the stats and comparing him with Edgar Martinez of the Seattle Mariners. And I want to get an idea from you why you thought Edgar already in the Hall of Fame back in 2019 was such a good comp. Well, I guess it's a, for me, just because of the Hall of Fame standard, right? You're trying to figure out what makes a Hall of Fame designated hitter. And I think that's tough. And I had decided, you know, look, there's no I don't, I can't tell you what the number is that makes me think that he's a Hall of Fame player or whatever. But I felt like Edgar was the guy he was before I had a vote, but I would have voted for him. And I think with Ortiz, as I noted in the story, I never really covered it. My first year on the Red Sox, I was covering the Yankees when he was playing and so my first year on the Red Sox was after he'd left. And I just, I thought he was probably all of Famer, but I also thought, you know, there's a chance that everything else around David, right? Not only the postseason success for sure, but also just the personality had maybe inflated the what we expected of his numbers, right? I thought there's a chance I didn't get to his numbers and they were just kind of good, but I didn't know if they would be Hall of Fame great. And it was amazing to me how much they just almost match up perfectly with Edgar Martinez. So maybe that the in terms of they did it differently, right? More power for more teas more kind of on base with Edgar, but to see that in the regular season that he was Edgar Martinez in the regular season. And then on top of that, he has all the playoff success. And then I also think on top of that that he is big poppy, right? Not that just having a big personality and being an iconic face and name in the game is enough to make you a Hall of Fame, but I think it matters. I mean, the story of baseball in the first 15 years of this century has to include David Ortiz. I mean, he is a vital piece of that. And so you add all that together. And then it's an easy vote. But yeah, going into it. I was, I don't know if skeptical is the right word. But I at least thought, you know, you wanted to do your due diligence. Right. I'm not going to automatically check the box because there is a chance that somehow the narrative has gotten in the way of facts here. And so I tried to look at the facts and the facts were pretty good. See what I like about that Chad is the fact that everybody's going to a lot of fans out there..
Derek Jeter Is Intrinsic to the Story of Baseball
"Era, baseball is a story, beginning to end. You can not tell the story of a baseball that Derek Jeter's extremely meaningful contributions. He owns signature moment after a signature moment. If you're not a fan of the Yankees, I understand why you wouldn't want to watch them again. I don't want to watch David Ortiz's home runs, but Derek Jeter is intrinsic to the fabric of the game from 1995 to roughly 2012. He deserves to be celebrated. He would be and I'm gonna go one, I'm gonna go one more here. People say Jeter wouldn't be celebrating the same manner if he played in Kansas City or Milwaukee. I'm gonna go another level and say he would be much more celebrated if he'd played against the city or Milwaukee and was just as great. Do you see what they say about George Brett? He is the leader of an entire generation of fans for the entire Midwest. People think George Bret is unimpeachably a God. If they're generated play one of these small cities and won one to two World Series surrounded by good teams in these tinier baseball towns, he would be he would be the first 101 percenter Hall of Famer. He suffers from being a Yankee because people have Yankee fatigue. That's my hottest take it and I'm putting that on you. Do you agree or disagree? I agree with CCC Matthew played a half season with the brewers and he's still a legend there. Like he's gonna get a statue. Yeah. Derek Jeter, I mean, it's hilarious because now all of a sudden when people have whole definitive Hall of Fame cases and it's someone you don't like. Then we're gonna dive into the contrarian statistics. And we're gonna look at advanced defensive stats and how they weren't that great. And why that should knock him down a peg as one of the all time greats. I and that's the same people who will argue that that, you know, if you don't have enough championships, why do you deserve to be in the hall fame? It's just every argument is to satisfy the
Former Boston Red Sox star Ortiz on Pedroia: 'It wasn't about size, it was about balls'
"I simply want to point out to you. Sort of a time in sports history.

In terms of how baseball mattered in this country now the quote is only from david ortiz about pedroia but this seems like a different time in america. When you think about what the red sox have become and how different baseball is than it was then and baseball. Doesn't even have a david t somebody with the star power in connection to a city in big moments baseball. Where's that for baseball right now. In terms of you know the america falling in love with a baseball story because it's in the post season maybe kershaw. La maybe so. Yeah so david. Ortiz comes from boston strong. You know bleep. with our city. He was a sort of feels like an icon from a different time and he played with pedroia and here is what he says about pedroia and this is the quote this is basically exactly how david ortiz would say but it feels it feels so from a different time to me stugotz that it feels like the black and white days when people would go to baseball games suits and old timey hats and it wasn't that long ago it was just a few years ago but here's david ortiz. About pedroia quote. He showed he showed the whole planet. It wasn't about height. It was about ball's if i had to pick one player to pay to watch it was dustin pedroia. It's just bobby bobby.
