David Ortiz Doesn’t Have Anything Against Journalists, After All (Video)

David Ortiz is making yet another All Star appearance in an All Star career.

This time, he'll have a little less company joining him in Kansas City, as no other Red Sox are currently slated to attend the game, but Ortiz does call it an "honor" to represent the American League.

In his talk with the Red Sox Gameday Live team, Ortiz also talked about his comments about the media weeks early, tacitly admitting that his outburst was more a concerted attempt to take pressure of his teammates than air legitimate greivances about journalists. Big Papi also took a little time to tweak Tim Wakefield on switching sides. Granted, Ortiz has a few years left in his career, but maybe some day his effervescent personality will also be behind the desk.

Watch the video above to hear Ortiz talk about a number of subjects with Tom Caron and the rest of the Gameday Live crew.
