Just a thought today, with the sudden impact of the news that David Ortiz had tested positive for steroids use in 2003, according to an unnamed source.
If their ever was a thing the Red Sox can do to sweep this story under the doormat as fast as they can, now is the time to make the blockbuster trade that brings the best pitcher in baseball to your team.
Theo loves the big trade at the deadline, think Nomar for a brand new infield in 2003, think Bay for Manny in 2008. Here, right now, would be a prime time for the Red Sox to make the sort of move that shakes the pillars of major league baseball. Suddenly Ortiz’s awful news today, becomes story 1B in Saturday morning’s paper.
We’ll see what happens by the deadling tomorrow.
