After injuring his left wrist during the Red Sox’ victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night, Ortiz learned yesterday he has ligament damage that will keep him sidelined indefinitely. According to a source, Ortiz’ wrist will be immobilized for roughly the next month to determine whether the injury can heal on its own.
If it cannot, the Red Sox and Ortiz very well may face a harsh reality:
No, no, no. NO. Nonononono. Noooooooooo.
It’s not true, it’s not true, in my happy place, it’s not true, la la la la la la, it’s not true, rainbows and flowers, it’s not true, it’s not true, it’s not true I CAN’T HEAR YOU it’s not true.
Lord, on behalf of Red Sox fans everywhere, I implore you: TAKE ME INSTEAD.
