It sure seems like David Ortiz has broken whatever horrible curse had been placed upon him for all of April and May.
On the last day of May, Ortiz’s fall into the depths of utter despair cratered out at a batting average of .185.
Then the calendar turned to June, and since that time, Ortiz has posted a slash line of .303/.395/.606 for a dazzling 1.001 OPS.
How quickly things change.
But as I suggested in a post back in early May, there was pretty much nothing discernably wrong with Ortiz’s peripherals, suggesting that this incredibly long 60-day slump was really nothing more than that – a long slump. And Ortiz’s performance so far in June certainly seems to bear that out.
