Twins To David Ortiz: "Cut It Out, We Get It!"

We're pretty sure everyone in TwinkieNation has gotten the message from David Americo (Arias) Ortiz. Apparently, he's trying to impress upon his old franchise that—perhaps—they shouldn't have flat-out released him back on December 16, 2002. A little more than a month later, he signed with Boston for what amounted to chump change. Last night—for the second consecutive night—Papi launched two HRs in a 9-4 win at Target Field. Maybe they should re-name it Target Practice Field in Papi's honor. Ortiz went 3-5 with two more RBIs—so now he's hitting .528 for his career at the Minneapolis venue. Felix Doubront got his first win since April 3rd—going 6 1/3 innings and giving up just one earned run. Grady Sizemore went 2-4 with two RBIs—hitting out of the fifth spot in the line-up. The series wraps up today with a 1:10 Eastern start.
