He hasn't announced it yet. Ken Rosenthal has it from a source. Supposedly will do so today, on his 40th birthday.

However, some local media don't believe it till they hear it from Ortiz' mouth and think it may be a ploy to force Red Sox to guarantee his 2017 option now.

All the reports are that he is announcing his retirement, but there's just some local folks who are waiting till it officially happens to believe it.

Well, when he does announce his retirement it will be a big deal. He's the last player from those early 21st Century BoSox teams. The farewell tour will commence. The special Big Papi Day will be marked on the calendar. The Hall of Fame talk/questions will be discussed. Will Papi suffer the same fate as Mike Piazza?

Considering as Ortiz actually did appear on one of those lists and Piazza never did?

Ortiz will be an interesting case. The list he was on was the 2003 pre-testing list that was supposed to be anonymous. What he tested for was never revealed. He of course claims it must have been an over the counter supplement. Since official testing went into place he's never tested positive for anything, but of course countless others can claim the same. Time may be on his side. It'll be 6 years down the road when he goes on the ballot and the stance of some writers may soften by then.

Yes, I would say Piazza has it worse than possibly Ortiz might encounter. People just assume about Piazza. Ortiz was on The List. Plus, his health and production greatly improved after the Twins released him at the conclusion of the 2002 season. I personally don't care if he or anyone else took anything. You still have to go out there and perform well. But, those HOF voters can be cunts.

The Hot Stove is heating up once again. BoSox sign David Price for 7 years/217 million dollars. Naturally, the price was right for him. Especially with an annual average salary of 31 mil. I think he has an opt out after 3 years too.

We've called in some experts to get a temperature reading on this stove.

Check the calibration, cause it seems awfully hot.
