PLAYERS: David OrtizBabe Ruth
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
The Guru Contributing Writer (AP Photo) No one knows how to motivate a team to win and no one knows how to celebrate after like Big Papi David Ortiz. According to TMZ, that Green Monster sized bottle of champagne that Ortiz was partying with following Wednesday night's World Series victory is one pricey party favor - $150,000 kind of pricey. The bubbly known as Ace of Spades, or more specifically "Armand de Brignac Nebuchadnezzar Champagne", reportedly costs between $100,000 and $150,000. When asked about the expensive bottle by MLB Network, Ortiz said, "Hey, that's how we roll, man, That's how we roll." Considering the Red Sox had not celebrated a World Series win at Fenway Park since the days of Babe Ruth in 1918, it seems a big bash was appropriate. You know the Bambino would have approved.

John Cena loans David Ortiz his belt for Red Sox parade

Well, I saw WWE Superstar (and West Newbury, Mass. native) John Cena reach out to Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz via Twitter Thursday, I thought to myself...there's no way this happens. .@davidortiz, be on the look-out for @WWE bling just in time for the WS parade. Hope to see you at #SurvivorSeries @tdgarden on Sun, Nov 24 — John Cena (@JohnCena) October 31, 2013...

David Ortiz explains how he fixed his swing after bad seasons

Remember when David Ortiz was struggling in 2008 and 2009 and everyone thought his career was coming to an end? Yeah, about that. Since 2009, Ortiz has put together four very good seasons, including three excellent ones in a row. And of course, he was MVP of the World Series after putting together one of […]

David Ortiz Runs Last Part of Boston Marathon, Crosses Finish Line During Red Sox Championship Parade (Photo)

There were a number of touching moments surrounding the Boston Marathon finish line during the Red Sox’ 2013 World Series championship parade, and David Ortiz added to the tributes. Shortly after the start of the parade around Boston, the duck boats carrying Red Sox players and their families came to a halt before crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street...

David Ortiz Cements His Place in Red Sox History With Spectacular Postseason Performance (Video)

The Boston Red Sox are world champions, but the celebration may not have been possible without the man who has won three titles with the team — David Ortiz. Ortiz was named the Most Valuable Player of the World Series, but he earned that title long before the postseason began. He shined when his city needed him most. Big Papi was a huge part of the team’s inspirational turnaround...

David Ortiz Compares 2013 World Series to Other Championships, Calls Red Sox ‘a Box Full of Surprises’

BOSTON — David Ortiz is a three-time World Series champion. How nuts is that? After 86 years of suffering, the Red Sox have won three titles in 10 years, with Ortiz being at the center of all three. The most recent, however, is especially satisfying for the 37-year-old. “I would say because this is a team that we have a lot of players with heart,” Ortiz said when asked about...

Numbers suggest ‘Cooperstown’ nickname suits David Ortiz

David Ortiz’ teammates call him “Cooperstown,” and were there any doubts over his Hall of Fame worthiness before the 2013 postseason, he is dispelling them with a vengeance. Already universally hailed as the greatest designated hitter of all time, and long ago declared the greatest clutch hitter in Red Sox history, Ortiz is making a bid to be recognized as one of the greatest...

When to Walk David Ortiz

It is a bit of an exaggeration to say that David Ortiz has been the Red Sox’ whole offense during the World Series, but only a bit, as he is hitting .733/.750/1.267 in the Series so far. Of course, he hit .091/.200/.227 in the ALCS versus Detroit. The reader probably understands both sets of numbers to be both small sample fluctuations — Ortiz is an excellent hitter, but making...

David Ortiz Raps “Started From The Bottom” At World Series Parade (Video)

Move over Tom Brady, David Ortiz is the king of Boston for the time being. It’s quite fitting that “Started From The Bottom” was the song of choice, since the Red Sox were in dead last place just a season ago and now they’re on top. You got to be happy for the city of Boston after what they’ve been through.

Time to celebrate Boston's resilience

The Boston Marathon terror attack basically coincided with the opening of this Boston Red Sox baseball season and now the World Series victory parade will end it, the largest public gathering of sports fans in the city since the marathon bombing in April. Red Sox fans won't just be celebrating the first baseball title won in the city since 1918, their presence will be a tangible...

Pair of Red Sox to Shave for Charity

The beards are coming off!  Well...kind of. They didn't have the biggest, most visible beards on the Boston Red Sox, but the cheek sweaters of World Series MVP David Ortiz and outfielder Shane Victorino will soon be no more. “Since making their scraggly summer debut, the beards have been a symbol of team solidarity and Boston pride. Now that the 2013 season has come...

Highlights: Boston Red Sox win 2013 World Series

The Boston Red Sox are the 2013 World Series champions. The Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 Wednesday night for their first World Series clincher at Fenway Park since 1918. Shane Victorino got his first hit of the World Series, a three-run double against Cardinals rookie starter Michael Wacha, who was 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in the postseason before struggling in Game 6. ...

Boston Red Sox Players to Shave Beards

You had to know it was coming. It was just a matter of when. Yes, with all the bonding with bearding the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox had, the question was, when would they shave them off. Yes, the beards have becoming iconic to the point of having nicknames. Dustin Pedroia’s beard was named “The Sick Flow”, while Jonny Gomes had “The Ironsides”, and David Ortiz...

A Red Sox and Boston season to never forget

Around the fifth inning of game six, with the Boston Red Sox up 6-0, my friend and fellow Boston sports fan Sully made a comment concerning superstition. Mixed within Shane Victorino’s three-run triple, Stephen Drew’s long overdue big fly and David Ortiz continuing to be World Series MVP David Ortiz, I hardly remember the exact words, but his statement basically centered upon...

Jennifer Garner Wears Beard to Support Red Sox, Still Looks Hot

If the Red Sox win the World series, I suspect we’ll soon see David Ortiz, Shane Victorino and Jonny Gomes making the talk show circuit, much like Papi, Manny and Damon did back in 2004. In the meantime, we’ll have to make do with Mrs. Ben Affleck talking on The Jimmy Kimmel Show about what it’s like to marry into Red Sox Nation and looking pretty f#$king fetching in a “Full Napoli.”
