Cement Shoes

I was at the gym earlier today, on the elliptical, and one of the Master Trainer’s came over and we started talking.  Malik is a Mets fan, I am a Yankees fan, so the comedy always ensues in our conversations. 

This time though it wasn’t at each others expense.  It was at the expense of one of the Yankees arch enemies, and it made me raise an eyebrow.  Malik pointed out to me that David Ortiz is doing awful this year, the same year his jersey was buried at the new Yankee Stadium.
Did this anger the ghosts maybe?  Or does Ortiz just have a Tom Selleck size hole in his swing? 

He’s only batting .189.  He only has one home run.  He is no longer batting third or fourth.  He was recently sixth in the Boston lineup.

Regardless of what is going on, I think it was a great point by Malik.  I told him I would blog about it, and I am a man of my word.

    Wow who knew regarding Ortiz and the buried jersey..a reverse hoax. Actually Chris…my fear is he wakes up from his slump when the Yankees are at Fenway..Murphy and his law are weird that way..Hoping not…but thinking so.

    I have to honestly admit..glee comes over me when I see those strikeouts or flyout…Sorry…but it does..Just hope my glee can ride past Yanks at Fenway.
