David Ortiz is currently a free agent, but before he entertains thoughts about next season, he's still mourning over the Red Sox's 2011 collapse.
"Right now I'm just thinking about how things went down here this year," Ortiz told CSN's Jessica Moran. "I know we let a lot of people down. We have greatest fans and they do not deserve what we just offered them this year. So my time to think about things, see where I wanna be -- hopefully I'm here next year and the years to come -- my time to think about it will come."
But if he had his druthers, would he return to Boston?
"Of course," he said. "This what I know. Everybody's gonna have his opportunity to talk about it. But I really see the front office and everybody trying to put things together for next year just to make sure things don't go down the way they did this year."
