According to a local Boston television interview, Red Sox DH David Ortiz is looking for a multi-year extension to stay with Boston, saying that "it would be time to move on" if he didn't get a long-term offer from the Red Sox, according to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston.
Ortiz turned 38 in November, but the long-time Red Sox DH had fine year in 2013, hitting .309/.395/.564 with 30 home runs in 600 plate appearances while helping the Red Sox to their third World Championship during his tenure with the team. But that 2013 season is looking more and more like an outlier as Ortiz ages - it was only his second 30 homer season in the last six years. He hasn't cracked 4.0 fWAR since the 2007 season. He's played in 150 games just once in the last six years, and hasn't broke the 650 plate appearance mark since that 2007 season.no comments
