The truth about David Ortiz is finally coming out....

http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/articles/2007/07/13/wrong_kind_of_a_tear/

Ortiz revealed after the game he has a torn meniscus in his right knee, the result of an injury he suffered last June, when he caught his foot in the netting at Yankee Stadium in batting practice. Ortiz said he "played through it" for the remainder of 2006; a season, you will recall, in which he belted a career-high 54 homers. Ortiz said once he stopped playing, the pain went away, which is why he did not feel the need to have a procedure done during the offseason.

Yet the knee began bothering him "from the beginning" of 2007, and has been sore, he said, for much of the season. The injury has impeded him from using his legs properly and, he admitted, may affect his ability to hit for power. But Ortiz said he has no current plans to undergo surgery.

I'm sure that the Sawx brass isn't pleased to hear that. If it requires an arthroscopic treatment, he could do it now and come back in sept.

Did nobody on the Red Sox training staff know about this, or did the Red Sox deliberately hide it?

If it's the latter, then why spill the beans now?

He is a DH, he gets to the plate maybe 4 times a game.

I wonder if Boston will trade for some Papi insurance in case the knee becomes worse. I'm sure Kevin Millar would love to go back to bean town. He sure misses that green monster. Hmmm..maybe we can spin Rob Mackowiak to the Red Sox for someone now that Rob is starting to hit again?

We're all hoping for the best for him, the Boston Red Sox organization, and the Boston Red Sox fans.
