UPDATE: 2 YRS, $26-$30 MILLION
According to multiple sources, a new deal between the Red Sox and David Ortiz is all but final. According to the Globe's Nick Cafardo, the deal is—as of this hour—in the "language" stage. Essentially, we're down to dotting the "I"s and crossing the "T"s—the money issues that had been a stumbling block are resolved. Expect to hear about the new deal tonight.
