I never thought we’d get this mother fucker out of the league, and I couldn’t be happier the time has finally come. Even up until this point there’s always been this doubt in the back of my mind that he’ll still come back and play this year, cause the guy loves to have the spotlight on him and to get people talking. I think if he hadn’t made the whole retirement tour that he said he’d never make, that he’d be playing again in 2017. You can’t get gifts from the entire league and then be like nah, sorry I’m playing another year. But this weirdo video of him in a shirt at the beach seals the deal. David Ortiz didn’t show up at Spring Training, and won’t be playing in the MLB again. What a day.
