Red Sox fans everywhere breathed a sigh of relief at the news that David Ortiz will—if asked—decline participation in this year All-Star Game Home Run Derby. Big Papi told's Rob Bradford, "If he [Robinson Cano] asks me to do it? I wouldn’t do it. I’m done with that. I can’t do it no more. I can’t even do it in batting practice. Watch me in batting practice, I might lose a couple of balls but that’s it. I can’t do it. It wears me out. Wears me out. And you know the Home Run Derby can be taken lightly. You have to be young with a lot of energy." Music to our ears!
