Big Papi Calls Out Joe Girardi

David Ortiz wasn’t happy that Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi questioned his bat flip on Tuesday night.  Big Papi has a simple message for the Yankees’ skipper.

Big Papi says Joe Girardi should, “Take it like a man.”  David Ortiz hit a home run off of Yankees’ rookie Hector Noesi on Tuesday night.  Ortiz flipped his bat in the air after hitting the home run.  Joe Girardi wasn’t a fan of Ortiz’s antics.  Ortiz wasn’t a fan of Joe Girardi not being a fan.

After the Red Sox beat the Yankees 11-6 on Wednesday night, David Ortiz said, “I don’t care what Joe Girardi says.  I don’t want to have you guys asking me the same questions.  I got almost 370 bombs in the big leagues and everybody wants to make a big deal because I bat-flip one of them.  (Expletive) that (expletive), man.”

The bat flip wasn’t a big deal.  Sure, it was unnecessary but let’s not make it out to be like Ortiz spat in somebody’s face.  I appreciate the honesty too.  It wasn’t exactly politically correct, but I’ll take expletives over cliches any day.  We just gave 110% out there?  “(Expletive) that (expletive), man.”
