Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Ortiz has spent the better part of his career making the Twins pay for their repression. He entered Saturday's game with a career .323 average, 13 homers and 37 RBIs in 52 games against Minnesota, and on Saturday night, he gave the Twins another painful reminder of what they could have had at Target Field had they kept Ortiz all these years, instead of letting him go after the 2002 season. Ortiz hit two homers -- posting his 40th multihomer game and his first since June 25, 2012 -- and drove in six runs in the Red Sox's 12-5 romp over the Twins. It was Ortiz's 38th multihomer game with the Red Sox, passing Ted Williams for most in team history. Ortiz also reached base four times in five plate appearances. And in a park that's supposed to be tough for left-handed hitters, Ortiz continued to look right at home. He now has homered five times in 10 career games at Target Field, driving in 16 runs in those games and batting .500 in the Twins' ballpark, which opened in 2010. At this point in his career, Ortiz has done so much in a Red Sox uniform that his time with the Twins will be little more than a footnote, and he has conducted such a thorough assault on his old team that he even admitted it doesn't give him much of a thrill these days. "It used to be [special], but not anymore," he said. "I just go about my business. You guys have seen me. I try to hit the moon every time I go to hit anywhere. It's not new." ESPN Boston: Ortiz continues to make Twins pay Poor Minnesota. David Ortiz just comes in and does the equivalent of kicking every single fan in the balls...well, every male fan that is. David Ortiz has silenced everyone who thought he would not make an impact after the achilles injury, and has provided a huge boost to the offense. Who knows, he may have 2 more seasons left in the tank after this one.
