    Ortiz is on the List

    Thursday July 30 2009 the New York Times reports the David Ortiz was in fact on the list of players that tested positive for performance enhancement drugs in 2003

    "I tell you, I don't know too much about steroids, but I started listening about steroids when they started to bring that [expletive] up, and I started realizing and getting to know a little bit about it. You've got to be careful. I used to buy a protein shake in my country. I don't do that anymore because they don't have the approval for that here, so I know that, so I'm off buying things at the GNC back in the Dominican Republic."-- Ortiz on steroids in 07

    Fast forward to today.

    "I'm not talking about that anymore, I have no comment."-- Ortiz on steroids 07/30/09

    Worst Loss Ever II, The Quickening

    "It's tough, what are you going to do? Things like that happen, it is what it is, you have to move on. Walking the leadoff (hitter), regardless of what the score is, is not what I was trying to do." -- Jonathan Papelbon

    Merloni Remains Absent From the NESN Booth

    As Don Orsillo goes through fill in color analysts faster than Dice-K can complain in Japanese there has been one glaring absence in the NESN broadcast booth. Lou Merloni; he would be perfect for the fill in analyst. Come on if Gordon Edes and Dave Roberts continue to get invited back the bar for qualifications is clearly not that high. Perhaps Lou and Eck could do a tag team for more balanced color commentating?

    From the Desk of John Henry

    "Met with Theo today.  What's the definition of a number 1 starter?  Is Buchholz going to be one?  I think most people in baseball think so."- John Henry Red Sox Owner

    Oh really? So Theo thinks it is wise to leave three crappy number three starters ahead of the "number 1 starter" Buchholz?
