09:49 AM ET 01.11 | Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington confirmed that the team has had contract talks with David Ortiz, and plan on continuing the conversation throughout the upcoming season. "Probably so," Cherington said when asked if talks with Ortiz and his agent, Fern Cuza, will be taking place in the coming months. "I can say that because I think there's always dialogue with David and with Fern. That's important to me. It's important to ownership. It's important to the organization to have open dialogue with our key players and David is certainly one of those. We've talked this winter.

How about a series of one-year deals?

I hate to say it-

He has earned it, extend him for 2015.

They should keep extending him until the stuff he's taking stops being effective.
