Ortiz jokes that he'll play nine more years

David Ortiz plans to play another nine seasons. Or at least that's what he said jokingly in an interview with Jessica Moran.

"I'll probably retire at the age Tim Wakefield did," Ortiz said, adding that he was kidding and does not throw a knuckleball.

"As long as I feel good," he said. "I'm just 36 years old, I'm in good shape right now, and I feel good. That's all that matters.
