And it comes from David Ortiz, during the press conference on Monday to announce he's returning to the Sox, and in response to that asinine statement that ex-Red Sox manager (boy, how I enjoy writing that) Bobby Valentine made about how Big Papi "shut it down" after the big trade with the Dodgers on August 25th:
" . . . After he went on national TV to say what he said, he sent me a text message trying to tell me that it was the media trying to change things. I did not respond to the message and I said to myself, this guy must have some mental issues or needs medicine or something? I said, I am dealing with someone crazy and I am not going to drive myself crazy, so it is better if I leave it alone."
How in the world did this jackass ever become the Red Sox manager?
