MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- Of the many reasons Red Sox owner John Henry would like his team to rebound from consecutive last-place finishes, one of the biggest is for David Ortiz to have the type of ending he deserves.
"Given his track record in the postseason, it would be a disaster," Henry said at Friday night's kickoff of the club's Winter Weekend. "That's a strong word, I guess, but a big disaster. It would be terrible if he doesn't end his career in the postseason."
