David Ortiz Appeals Suspension, But Should Be Able to Keep Rhythm Despite Missing Some Time


David Ortiz ended the suspense on Friday when he announced that he is appealing the four-game suspension that was handed down to him this week.

Hall of Famer Jim Rice says that Ortiz would probably be best served to serve his suspension right away, but Rice also pointed out that the games missed shouldn't totally throw off Ortiz' rhythm and timing. As Rice mentioned on Red Sox First Pitch, Ortiz should be able to get his hacks in on the side and will be fine when he returns — whenever that may be.
