David Ortiz says that the Red Sox need more offense
On the surface, David Ortiz is entirely correct. Late in the season and into the playoffs, it was obvious that the Red Sox had issues with their offense. They desperately needed another power bat to protect their hitters and provide a legitimate threat in the middle of the lineup.
However, there's a flaw in Ortiz's logic. At the beginning of the season, the Red Sox thought they had a guy who was good for about .300, with 40 HR and 120 RBI. That guy was supposed to be David Ortiz. Unfortunately, he was pretty much useless in the beginning of the season, as well as in the playoffs.
I have no problem with a guy saying something like that after a productive season. But for a solid portion of the year, Ortiz was nothing but an offensive liability. Have a good year, and then come back and whine about the front office not doing their job, if you still feel like it's necessary.
