David Ortiz’s Milestone Home Run Came Right on Time, But More Dramatic Setting Would Have Been Fitting (Video)

We're never going to be upset at David Ortiz for hitting a home run — a game-tying home run, no less — but when writing the storybook ending for this one, Ortiz went a little bit off-script.

Papi's 400th career home run was awesome, no doubt, but is NESN Nation's Dan Duquette the only one out there who thought Papi's milestone would come with a little more oomph? After all we've been through with the slugger, it kind of felt like he was going to come through with the big moment in the clutch situations we've come to know him for.

Oh well… there's always the next milestone.
