Ortiz drops F-bombs during postgame rant
Big Papi apparently has had enough of the latest saga in the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry.
After Wednesday night’s 11-6 rout, David Ortiz let out a few F-bombs along the way when peppered with questions regarding comments made by Yankees manager Joe Girardi and whether or not he thought he would get beaned by Thursday starter CC Sabathia.
“I don’t care what Joe Girardi says,” the Boston slugger fired back at a local New York writer. “Take it like a man. I’m done with that.”
Ortiz hit a two-run homer off New York rookie reliever Hector Noesi and flipped his bat before going on his home run trot.
“I don't want to be on national news tomorrow,” replied Ortiz on not flipping his bat after a two-run blast Wednesday. “I don’t want to have you guys asking me the same questions. I got almost 370 bombs in the big leagues and everybody wants to make a big deal because I bat flip one of them. [Expletive] that [expletive], man. If I have to make that video on my [expletive], let’s see how many bat flips I got on this [expletive]. Good night.”
