FORT MYERS, Fla. -- David Ortiz was in no mood to chat after the worst game of his worst season with Boston.
The struggling slugger had just gone 0 for 7 and stranded 12 runners in a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels last May 14. His batting average dropped from .220 to .208. His home run total remained at zero.
"Sorry, guys. I don't feel like talking today," the Red Sox designated hitter told reporters. "Just put down, `Papi stinks."
