David Ortiz Shares Questionable Retirement Ideas In ‘SportsCenter’ Commercial

David Ortiz might be in for a rough 2017.

The Boston Red Sox slugger stars in a new “SportsCenter” commercial on ESPN in which he brainstorms some ideas for post-retirement business ventures with teammates David Price and Eduardo Rodriguez. And with suggestions like “Papi’s Fritas” and “Big Puppy,” Ortiz’s starting pitcher buddies can’t help but wonder if retirement might make him go a little crazy.

Ortiz has made just a little bit of money throughout his 19-season career — Spotrac estimates his total cash earnings at around $160 million — so we’re sure he’ll be just fine even if “Papisicles” don’t work out for him.
