Calling last year's arbitration process 'humiliating' and 'embarrassing', David Ortiz tells USA Today he'll only re-sign with the Red Sox if they make the best free-agent offer.
The Sox' tepid offensive showing on their disastrous road trip shines the light on a disturbing trend: The team's inability to get key hits in close games.
Kevin Youkilis is 'having a great time' with the White Sox, as evidenced by Wednesday's 3-for-6 performance, which included the game-winning hit in an extra-inning win over Texas.
David Ortiz became the eighth active player to reach the milestone and moved into 49th place on the all-time homer list with his 400th home run.
The Red Sox manager said that pitcher Aaron Cook gave a good performance, but the team failed to 'help him out with the runs.'
