The day the David Ortiz steroids story broke, I mocked him on The Faster Times for his claims that he would investigate what he tested positive for. I called him "Sherlock Ortiz."
So you can imagine my delight today to see none other than Red Sox fan site Boston Dirt Dogs run with the "Sherlock Ortiz" theme. They even did a photo illustration of Ortiz as Sherlock Holmes! Check it out here. Best part, besides the fact the site linked to Ken Davidoff's Newsday piece quoting me, was this tidbit:
Can You Believe That Alex Rodriguez Handled This 1,000 Times Better Than You?
How funny is that?
Here's the thing with A-Rod. However goofy he sounded, he communicated some remorse, and explained a heck of a lot more than anybody else has so far. As it turned out, he actually did handle this okay.
Meanwhile, Ortiz is still claiming he doesn't know what he tested positive for. Gimme a break.
And get this. Today John Henry finally spoke - a little - about this! Wonder if he will go back to Twitter now?
As for the Newsday article feauring me, I found a newsstand on Staten Island selling the paper, and bought out their supply. It was only two newspapers, but still!
Oh, and Squawker reader Paul from Boston noted that Davidoff's piece was republished on the Boston Herald web site. So I am being read in Red Sox Nation. Check out that link here.
Coming later today, my predictions for Yankees-Red Sox. But in the meantime, please leave us a comment!
