David Ortiz’s Arbitration Situation Difficult for Red Sox to Handle (Video)


The Boston Red Sox are in the midst of a tough situation with longtime designated hitter David Ortiz.

General manager Ben Cherington and the Red Sox are still in negotiations with Ortiz, but both sides are still about $4 million apart from one another's asking price.

NESN.com Red Sox beat reporter Didier Morais breaks down the contract talks and analyzes the impact the waiting game could have on both sides.
