Ortiz close to $50 mill extension through 2010


Recommended Posts

its completely false info, everyone knows that ESPN Deportes doesnt really exist. :)


Seriously, thats an insane amount of money for a DH


Not at all. $12 mill a year for a guy that came in a close second in the MVP voting.


And it's also a reward for how well he's played and how little he's been paid the last couple years.



Either way, here's an update...


No Ortiz deal yet

By Gordon Edes, Globe Staff


David Ortiz smiled broadly when told that ESPNdeportes reported he had reached an agreeement on a four-year extension with the Red Sox, especially when told that it was for four years and $50m. "Sounds good,'' he said.


But it ain't true, he said. And he insisted he wasn't just playing the good soldier and not commenting because the club asked him not to, pending an official announcement.


The club, of course, is taking considerable pains to keep things under wraps. GM Theo Epstein did acknowledge that the sides have had "quiet discussions."
