In a column on Wednesday, the Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy detailed a conversation that he had with David Ortiz about steroid usage.
Ortiz told Shaughnessy that his hot start is legitimate and that he has nothing to hide.
“I don’t care. I don’t got nothing to hide, bro. Testing is not my problem. Being tested — I ask to go in to get it done. I got no problem with that. I’m not going to screw everything that I have done in my career because I test positive for steroids. That’s not going to happen.
“If I can’t get it done anymore because I can’t get it done? I go home. But not because of that [expletive].
“I guarantee you that later, you are not going to find out that I tested positive for some [expletive]. It’s not happening. Guaranteed. Guaranteed."
Shaughnessy joined SportsNet Central on Thursday to discuss the article and why he wrote it.
