    Young Red Sox fan makes it to Fenway for his late father, gets A-Rod's home run bat





    By Chris Landers

    When Mesa, Ariz., native Andy Moss was diagnosed with cancer last year, there was one big item on his bucket list: to take his son, David, to Fenway Park and meet his hero, David Ortiz. Sadly, Andy passed away in late September, but on his 8th birthday, David made sure his dad's wish came true -- he and his sister and mom made the trip to the Red Sox-Yankees game on Friday night.


    Boston welcomed Andy to batting practice, where he finally met Big Papi. But the story doesn't end there -- Ortiz passed along Moss' story to Alex Rodriguez, who made sure he said hello before his first at-bat in the second inning. David had one request: "I asked if I could have his bat," he said. "He said, 'If I hit a home run you can have my bat!'" Just a few minutes later, this happened:


    Ever the man of his word, A-Rod paid up:





    And as if a souvenir from A-Rod wasn't cool enough, a nearby Red Sox fan caught wind of David's story, and decided to give him and his family one last present: tickets for seats above Boston's dugout, so he could get his baseball signed by Big Papi. A few innings later, Ortiz hit the game-winning dinger in the bottom of the eighth, because of course.

    He's a PED user, just like Arod.

    After it was revealed Alex was on the 2003 list of people who failed the test, Ortiz said that anyone who uses steroids should be banned. Not too long after that, it was revealed he was also on the list.

    Random bump. The sports media is currently into their forth jerk off session about David Ortiz and his last season.

    He is currently on pace to have his 2nd or 3rd best season of his career. He's also 40, and apparently in his prime again.

    I trust the drug testing policy of the WWE's more than MLB's.

    I won't throw around stats here, since most here, I assume wouldn't care for them. But what he is currently doing on the field makes no sense. He leads the league in multiple offensive catagories. Including, doubles, on base % and Slug %.

    There is no way he is clean.

    first, don't pre judge posters here. you'd be surprised at what we know.

    so you are saying because he's having a stellar year, and because he's 40 that there's no way he's clean? (yes, he failed a test in 2003)

    he uses supplements now, the same ones that Dustin Pedroia uses. Pedey is clean

    as far as your previous comment about WWE and their wellness policy, um, that has changed dramatically in recent years. Especially due to
    the incident with Chris Benoit. In fact Roman Reigns has recently been nailed with a 30 day suspension due to a violation (whether a work or not)
    it's easy to accuse, but don't do that unless you've got some facts to base them on. Randy Orton once failed a drug test, testing positive for marijuana.

    I know all about the WWE's testing policy. I'm a wrestling dork that has constantly watched it since I was about 7. Orton has been suspected twice for failed tests. A third for unprofessional conduct.

    Ortiz is not having a stellar year. He is having an MVP season.

    He's on pace for 59 doubles. One more and he'd be the first player since 1936 to reach 60 doubles. He hasn't reached 40 doubles since 2011. His career high is 52.
    He's on pace for 41 homers. The last time he hit more than 35 in a season was 2006.

    His performance is all out of wack for someone that that suddenly has become an elite hitter again.

    ffs, you talk about GR posters (the majority of which are women) like we don't know anything about sports. we give you facts or comments
    and you get defensive?

    kinda tacky to tell someone to come to your house and shoot you. In this day and age? really?

    One, I was clearly being sarcastic about the shooting comment. Don't be so sensitive. Second, nothing I said was meant to be offensive. Other than to that roider Ortiz.

    Ortiz is protected by the media due to his smile and charm. Also, the fact that he plays in a big market helps. If he played in St Louis, the media would constantly be talking about how suspicious this season has been.

    I don't need to shoot you honey. Just throwing you a beating will be enough
