N’Opening Day for Big Papi

David Ortiz shared with us that Opening Day is unlikely.

Alex Speier of WEEI.com tweeted


The last Red Sox DH on Opening Day not named David Ortiz, was Jeremy Giambi on March 31, 2003.

Ortiz made his Red Sox debut the next day playing first base in a 16-inning win over the Devil Rays. Ortiz went 0-for-6.
