    Ortiz wants multi-year extension from Red Sox

    David Ortiz told ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes on Monday that he is hoping to sign a multi-year contract extension with the Red Sox.
    How times have changed. A few months ago some in the Boston media were calling for Ortiz to be released, and now an extension seems almost justifiable. Big Papi, 34, has a .945 OPS, 18 home runs and 57 RBI in 251 at-bats this season and won the Home Run Derby on Monday night. He is under contract for 2011 on a $12.5 million club option. "I'm going to tell you, I ain't going nowhere,'' Ortiz said. "I don't want one year. Why should I return for one year and go through the same [stuff] I'm going through now, just because it's my last year? No. I like to be left alone when I'm playing baseball." Jul. 13 - 8:42 am et

    At this point, I think you have to go year-to-year with him. The slow starts have to be concerning, if not alarming.

    Sure, he wants a multi-year deal, but who is really going to give it to him?

    1 year, 10 million beats anything else he's gonna get.

    lol at the Sux if they actually cave in to his demands and give him anything more than 1 yr $8 mil for next season. He ain't getting anymore than that on the FA market and that's being optimistic for him.

    Ortiz is negotiating

    A lawyer is sitting in a bar having a drink when a beautiful women sits down next to him.
    The lawyer seeing opportunity buys the women a beer and proceeds to hit on her.
    He then asks her, "Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?"
    The women looks at him and says, "You know for a million dollars, sure."
    The Lawyer then asks, "Would you sleep with me for 20 dollars?"
    The women is instantly upset and yells, "Twenty dollars, what do you think I am some kind of whore?!"
    The lawyer then looks at her and says, "Well, we have already established what you are. Now we are just negotiating the price."
