David Ortiz saves his best for history –
The long, fierce Red Sox/Yankee rivalry –
And always the nemesis of Pinstripes,
He did it again just last Sunday night.
In the third he smacked a 3-run homer
And grinned It’s good to be a power hitter
As he beat up Chase Whitley, rookie pitcher,
With a detonation to Yankee right-center.
He’s a hulking figure at the plate,
But he and Cooperstown have a date.
Is Ortiz Marvel’s newest Avenger?
On newsstands now . . . The Pinstripe Tormentor.
