Dan Shaughnessy deserves credit for questioning if Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz continues to cheat

After Blue Jays fans serenaded the tarnished designated hitter with chants of “steroids” during last week’s series in Toronto, acclaimed Boston Globe sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy rightfully questioned if Red Sox star David Ortiz is again abusing performance-enhancing drugs. Ortiz, who was publicly revealed by The New York Times to be one of approximately 100 ballplayers that...

Ortiz shouldn't be presumed guilty

The Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy is one of my professional heroes. But I don't agree with how he handled his recent column on Red Sox slugger David Ortiz. Readers should understand that Shaughnessy's job, as a sports columnist, is not to be a fan boy, player's pal or owner's suck-up. It is not to make sure he remains in good standing with the ever-vigilant...

Columnist Dan Shaughnessy basically accuses David Ortiz of using PEDs in Boston Globe

Tweet Dan Shaughnessy, a high-profile columnist for the Boston Globe, has never been one to mince words and has always been one to cause a stir. After all, this is the man who referred to the 2004 Red Sox, prior to their magical comeback, “a happy-go-lucky (then suddenly unlucky) pack of frauds.” Shaughnessy is at [...]

Unkind Reactions To Shaughnessy Column on Ortiz

While Dan Shaughnessy gets lionized among local media for his David Ortiz column from the other day, especially among sports radio hosts, a few people displaced from the local scene see the column for what it really was: garbage. The worst baseball writing of the month -Rob Neyer says that the column takes muckraking to a whole different place. You know what’s really a shame...

Dan Shaughnessy is trolling Red Sox fans once again

Dan Shaughnessy is at it again. The long-time Boston Globe columnist posted an article on Wednesday entitled "David Ortiz rejects talk of steroid use." I'm sure you can see where this one is heading already. In the article, Shaughnessy not so subtlely says that Ortiz is taking steroids (with only a 2009 New York Times column stating Ortiz tested positive in 2003 as...

Ryan Dempster Confident Sox Can Bust Out of Rut, Get Back on Winning Track (Video)

The fun had to come to an end at some point, and after experiencing a successful April, the Red Sox have gotten their first few tests of the season. The Sox have won just four games in their last 12 dating back to May 1, a period in which they also suffered their first sweep of the season at the hands of the Rangers.

Ortiz hitting streak: Fuggedaboudit

The Guru Contributing Writer If last nights Red Sox 15-8 loss to the Twins had been a football game Bill Belichick would bury the ball in the end zone and say, "fuggedaboudit." While it's no crime to lose by a seven on the gridiron, it is another thing to lose by a touchdown on the diamond. However, these types of nights happen over the course of 162. Someone tell...

Red Sox-Blue Jays Live: Ryan Dempster, Sox Look to Finish Homestand Strong in Rubber Match Against Jays

11:30 a.m.: David Ortiz started the season like a house on fire, hitting .500 (18-for-36) with three home runs and 15RBIs in nine April games. He has struggled of late, though, hitting just .179 (7-for-39) in May. Ortiz will get the day off on Sunday, which is a move designed to get the slugger back-to-back days off — the Red Sox have an off day on Monday. That means Mike Napoli...

Character Exam is in Progress - Please Do Not Disturb

The Red Sox are facing their first real test this year, both on the field and off. On the field, they have lost 6 of 7, and are dealing with injuries to both regular closers. Joel Hanrahan was just moved from the 15 day DL to the 60 day DL, and there is talk of surgery. Off the field, David Ortiz is being questioned for PED use and Clay Bucholz was questioned by Toronto media for...

3 Stars of the Game: Game 38, Mothers Day

Ryan Macleod Contributing Writer Did someone tell the Blue Jays that the home run derby was today? Nope? Well it sure looked like it, or maybe the ball looked like a watermelon for those hitters who went deep 5 times today in a disappointing effort on mothers day. The loss was the Red Sox 8th in their last 10 games and the team that was once dominating the Major Leagues is now getting...

Four Bases: Twins 15, Red Sox 8

April spoils have brought May turmoil. The Red Sox have now lost four out of their last five, and their pitching looks as thin as ever. There was no consolation prize either – David Ortiz went 0-5, ending his 27 game hitting streak. Here are the Four Bases: First Base: To say the least, Allen Webster‘s start was not the one that John Farrell was looking for. Despite his very...

Homers Of The Week: Unsure if any of these have landed yet + Robinson Cano pose

Edwin Encarnacion goes upper deck. —– Giancarlo Stanton hit ball far —– I never saw this Mark Trumbo homer land, so I’ll assume it’s still going. Russell Martin (really?) absolutely bombed this one. I don’t remember hearing of raw power like this from either Pedro Alvarez or Anthony Rizzo when they were prospects. Robinson Cano probably has the best home run pimp...
