LOVE IT WHEN YOU CALL ME BIG PAPI: ESPN BOSTON's Gordon Edes wrote the Red Sox "should extend" DH David Ortiz's contract because they have "never been in a better financial position to do so." MLB is "flush with cash, national TV revenues have taken a big spike, and there's no quantifiable way to measure how Ortiz's contributions have increased the value of the franchise." Edes: "We have metrics like WAR that can help gauge the dollar value of wins and losses, but that only begins to tell the story of Ortiz's impact. ... We just know it's huge" (ESPNBOSTON.com, 2/19).
