Ben Cherington reads my blog, you guys!
I think he’s my Twitter pal too. Know how I know?
I JUUUUUUSSSTTTT finished twittering my terrible, awful, icky, no-good day…
You’re welcome, guys.
I’m 100 percent positive Ben Cherington did this for me.
Now’s the wait and see…
10:52 p.m.: Okay. Here’s the skinny as I know it from EXTRA BASES: Ortiz’ agent, Fern Cuza, is meeting Red Sox in about an hour. And- wait… uhoh.
But Cuza is now meeting with Orioles GM Dan Duquette, another team that could have interest in Ortiz.
YOU BACK OFF, DUQUETTE. YOU BACK OFF NOW. WE are the FIRST OPTION. Boston Herald says so.
While we’re waiting, let’s review a great Ortiz quote, shall we, FDA?
“I never said I would sign with the Yankees. No, no, no, no, don’t be twisting (expletive) up,” David Ortiz.
Your word for it, Papi. Your word…
Updates likely to follow… check back.
11:05- and more buzz. Thanks, Fenway West.
11:21- and MASN has picked up the story– says Orioles need a big bat-
Yes, the Orioles would need to keep Ortiz and Kevin Gregg on opposite sides of the clubhouse. I’m sure Duquette is aware of their history.
Okay. It is 11:47. My tequila and I have been updating google news constantly and there is no update. So I am going to assume that this is for-real happening. Now. If a boy would just call me back my life would be complete.
Crap. I have to work tomorrow, don’t I?
My life would be so swell if I didn’t have that work thing.
Would you hire me at your better job? Hey, NESN… I hear there might be a Heidi opening…
12:01. You know. I bet there’s at least one other person updating his Google news alerts right now.
The 2:13 a.m. update. Yes. I am still awake.
2:46. insomnia is stupid. But Hardball’s in on the Ortiz action.
Good morning! 8 a.m. update.
