David Ortiz burst into the middle of Sox manager Terry Franconaspress conference in the media room upstairs from the Sox clubhouse, and wasrunning hot about something.

Ortiz said Im bleeping pissed. We need to have a talk . . . you and mebefore the manager and designated hitter agreed to talk about things at a moreappropriate time.

Then Ortiz gave away exactly what was bothering him when he mutteredBleepin scorekeeper always bleepin bleep up while exiting the room.

Ortiz was most certainly upset about a change made by official scorerChaz Scoggins in Wednesday nights game that turned his first inning two-runsingle into a one-run single with an error on the left fielder allowing thesecond run to score. That means an RBI was taken away from Ortiz midway throughthe game, and he was upset enough about it to bust up Franconas daily pregamemeeting with the press with a few choice words.

When approached later in the clubhouse, Ortiz declined comment on the incident except to say it was "between me and Tito."
