David Ortiz Getting More ESPN Handjobs

First story on SportsCenter is a puff piece on David Ortiz hosted by Jeremy Schaap.

Direct quotes:

"If the season were to end today, David Ortiz would be the hands down AL MVP." "

Many voters thought he should have won it last year but he lost (because he doesn't play the field)." "

He lost to Alex Rodriguez who had comparable offensive numbers and played near gold glove defense" - (neither statement is true, Alex's offense was much better and his defense not gold glove deserving) - "but now that seems like so long ago."

Besides the fact that ESPN shouldn't be promoting a player like that (aw hell they did it last year.. for the same player actually) David Ortiz isn't even the best DH in the AL this season. Of course, Hafner doesn't even make All-Star teams, so he must not be very good.

You're the only person other than myself who's saying anything about this problem. By the way, 1 of your links is to Sam Borden, but I believe he's more interested in gaining favor with the ESPN agenda than telling the truth--don't trust him.

Borden is good for anecdotes and personal accounts every now and then because he's a beat writer, but in all honesty he's nowhere near as good as Peter Abraham of Lohud. Abraham seems to be the only really unbiased writer out there, for or against the Yankees.
