07:06 AM ET 05.06 | Does David Ortiz has even more in him? There is no doubt that he is still a force offensively, Boston's best hitter, and one of the most feared hitters in baseball. Ortiz entered Saturday hitting .465, and even his outs are hit hard. Ortiz's batting eye is locked in right now. "I'm seeing the ball and hitting the ball good," Ortiz said. "I just keep going out there, seeing and hitting the ball. I'm keeping it simple right now. I'm not trying to do too much and the hits are falling. And some hits get taken away. I'm still not 100 percent down there [pointing to his legs]." He has ice packs on both heels after every game. Yes, he is running fairly well, but how many more times will he have to extend himself before he feels something?

I don't think he was pointing to his legs, but to his leg...he took Viagra right after that quote.

Wow! Threats from an official of a law enforcement department. And, one who has internet and technological expertise, too. Mooses better tread carefully.

"Boston's Best Hitter Still Not 100%"

I was referring to the improper grammar.
