Why Is David Ortiz Retiring? Ex-Red Sox Teammate Jake Peavy Couldn’t Tell You

David Ortiz plans to call it a career at the end of this season, but he certainly isn’t playing like someone who’s in the midst of a farewell tour. The Boston Red Sox designated hitter entered Tuesday as the major league leader in doubles, slugging percentage and OPS — while also ranking near the top in a slew of other categories — and shows no signs of slowing down mere...
