Ortiz: 'Just put down 'Papi stinks''

from WEEI:

David Ortiz hit what might be his lowest point of the season in the Red Sox' 12-inning, 5-4 loss to the Angels, at Angel Stadium Thursday afternoon, going 0 for 7 while stranding 12 runners. It was the most runners left on base by one Red Sox hitter since Trot Nixon equaled the total in 2003. The Sox as a team left 17 runners on base. After the game, Ortiz would only say, "Sorry guys, I don't feel like talking right now. Just put down 'Papi stinks'." Ortiz is currently hitting .208 with no home runs.

MY TAKE ON THIS: Got to move him down in the order and move Bay to #3 and when the Youk comes back, put him cleanup. Papi will have to bat#8. Sure has gone a long stretch without a home run. I think that they should send him down to Pawtucket to take some pressure of him. Can this be the beginning of the end for the Big Papi?
