Ortiz Encouraged By Today's Baserunning Drills

Running Man
David Ortiz went home to first, first to third and second to home a few times today in a key series of base running drills. The good news is he says he feels fine. Said Big Papi, “I ran today better than the last time I ran. Everybody was pretty happy about it. I’m happy about it because nothing bothers me when I was running. That’s a plus. That is telling me that I’m going in the right direction." The Red Sox designated hitter feels confident he will be in the lineup on Opening Day against The Evil Empire.  "Of course, that’s why we’re doing all this stuff so I’m good to go for Opening Day,” said Ortiz.
