On April 13th the Yankees unearthed a David Ortiz shirt buried beneath the construction of the new House that
Derek Joba Hankosity!™ built, put there by (at least in our mind) a misguided Red Sox fan. At the time, Ortiz was hitting .077 with a .407 OPS and a grand total of 3 RBI. He was benched, at least for a night, against the hated Yankees.
Since the day the shirt was discovered and removed, David Ortiz has hit .305 with a homer and 12 RBIs in eight games. As we said before, thank you to the Yankees for their organizational lack of recognition of a potentially terrible, career-altering, and division-changing metaphor.
