the large father

following up on the success about posting about hawks and the red sox i came across this great quote on surviving grady from one david arias ortiz, big papi, or the large father for those who aren’t into the whole brevity thing.

its a nice reference to the whole lefty specialist idea that teams love(even the sox javier lopez i’m looking at you).

“It’s been happening too many years,” Papi said. “It’s hard to find that one lefty just to get me out. Like the Yankees got (Mike) Myers a few years ago from us. But you’re not gonna get me out throwing the same crap all the time. I’m gonna get you at one point. If I’m on my game, I don’t care if it’s a lefty or a righty. Doesn’t matter to me. And I think the league knows that now. You can try to do percentages against me, and that’s what most of them try to do, but it doesn’t matter. If I’m not swinging that bat well, I’ll fight through it. But lefties don’t bother me,” he said.”

this rivals only manny’s i am bad man quote as just awesome confidence. it’d be hubris if either of them were not some of the best hitters in the game.
