Chris Sale being traded to the Boston Red Sox has done a few things. It’s given the Red Sox arguably baseball’s best starting rotation and made Boston a favorite in the American League. As we can see in an Instagram post, it’s also got David Ortiz thinking.
The Red Sox already figure to be one of baseball’s best teams in 2017. Put Ortiz back in the mix, and Boston’s stock gets even stronger.
Ortiz was a menace to opposing pitchers in 2016. He hit 38 homers, drove in 127, and slashed at a staggering .315/.401/.620.
If he’s thinking about coming back, it likely wouldn’t be too hard to convince the Red Sox to welcome him back.
