Over the weekend, reports surfaced again that Big Papi was looking for a contract extension. Does the Red Sox slugger have a right to ask for a new deal? And should he get one?
Ortiz is having a great season, batting .288 with 21 home runs and 71 RBI, but turns 36 in the off-season. Is it worth giving a full-time DH a two-year deal?
With the rumors swirling, the guys question the timing and validity of Ortiz’s case.
What do you think? Should David Ortiz be asking for a new contract now, or should he wait until the off-season?
