Video: Bobby V, David Ortiz meet in D.R.
December, 2, 2011
Bobby Valentine met with David Ortiz on Friday in the Dominican Republic, where Ortiz is hosting a golf tournament for charity. The free-agent slugger has said he wants to return to Boston, Valentine is apparently leading the recruiting effort ... but we'll likely have to wait until baseball's winter meetings begin Monday in Dallas before any good intentions start to translate into actual actions.
Red Sox GM Ben Cherington and Ortiz's agent, Fern Cuza, are planning to meet in Dallas. The Sox have offered arbitration to Ortiz, who would prefer a multiyear deal. Stay tuned.
