Big Papi: Red Sox Need To Add Some 'Thunder'

Papi's Got A Brand New Nag
David Ortiz, appearing on WEEI's Hot Stove Show last night, stated that the Red Sox lineup needs some additional "thunder". Sad Big Papi:

“It’s not a surprise for anyone that follows the Red Sox that we need some thunder in that lineup. The problem is that there isn’t too many out there. That’s one thing. I’m pretty sure everybody needs to be a little patient. We have the winter meetings right now coming up and a lot of decisions get made right after the winter meetings, so hopefully they come out with some decisions."

Indeed, let's hope so. Ortiz also strongly argued for the re-signing of outfielder Cody Ross, who clouted 22 HRs for the Carmine Hose in 2012.
