Laser Show. Relax.
Remember Pedroia's quote from about 3 weeks ago talking about the slump that David Ortiz was in?
"He's had 60 at-bats, I mean a couple years ago I had 60 at-bats and I was hitting .170, what happened? Laser show. Relax"
With 53 at-bats in the month of May, Ortiz is hitting .358 with a slugging percentage of .774. Papi's had 7 home runs with 17 RBI since the month got underway. Sox open up a 3-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight in Citizens Bank Park. They're riding a 3-game winning streak including the 2-game sweep of the Twins, thanks to the complete game gem tossed by Jon Lester.
