David Ortiz Was Major Loss for Red Sox in 2012, Still Hopes to Retire in Boston (Video)


It turned out that no one was capable of replacing David Ortiz when he was sidelined with an injury to his Achilles’ tendon.

Even though it may have been easy for former manager Bobby Valentine to slot someone into Ortiz’ designated hitter’s spot, they didn’t produce like he could have. If Ortiz were healthy, maybe the Red Sox’ 2012 record wouldn’t look as bad as it did at season’s end.

Check out the video above to hear Jamison Coyle and Jenny Dell talk about the impact that Ortiz had when he was healthy and what his plans are going into this offseason as a free agent.
