    Hey Dick,

    Feels like I have a sports car, and now I want to take it for a spin and see what it can really do. Of coures you don't know what's possible until you move into the "impossible".

    Default He's been hospitalized

    Ortiz
    Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz confirmed to the Boston Herald on Thursday that he was hospitalized last weekend for an irregular heartbeat.

    Ortiz told the Herald he began experiencing a rapid heartbeat Friday night after the Red Sox were swept by the New York Yankees in a doubleheader at Fenway Park. Although Ortiz played Saturday, the problem persisted and the Red Sox medical staff advised him to visit Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was held overnight for observation.

    Ortiz, who is hitting .286 and leads the majors with 46 homers and 120 RBI this season, didn't miss any time during the Yankees series.

    Default Big Papi has medical trouble after SI cover photo

    Why would he allow his photo on the cover of Sports Illustrated? Is he out of his mind???

    There is a curse.

    There is in fact, a curse. But let’s not call it that. Curses are not real. There is an entrainment. I am predicting here and now that his season is doomed. He will have some tragic injury, the team will fail, his batting average will plummet, something terrible is gonna happen.

    THE SPORTS ILLUSTRATED COVER JINX

    Do this. Open Google and type in this search phrase: “Sports Illustrated Cover Curse.” Then read about all the times a player or team has appeared on the cover, and tragedy ensues.

    This quote from one of the articles about S.I. cover jinx:

    “The list of season-ending injuries, fatal car crashes, family tragedies, divorces, batting slumps, chokes, losing streaks and shocking upsets suffered by individuals and teams since August 1954 is too long and scary to recount.”

    Back to David Ortiz. He has put himself on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and is now- whether he knows it or not (I’m sure someone other than me will bring this up and call it to his attention) entered an entrainment field that is robust and real.

    We’ll report on his season as it progresses.

    Default Sports Illustrated Curse?

    BOSTON -- Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, the AL leader in home runs and RBI, will have more tests for heart palpitations before he returns to the lineup.

    The tests will take a few days, said Red Sox medical director Thomas Gill on Tuesday.

    "David had not experienced any additional episodes of palpitations until Monday evening," Gill said. "With the recurrence of these symptoms, we would like David to be fully examined and tested before he is allowed to return to the field.
