David Ortiz appeared on The Big Show Tuesday, a day after hitting his 20th and 21st homers of the season in a 6-3 Red Sox victory over the Angels. Now hitting .256 with 64 RBI and possessing a .370 on-base percentage, Ortiz spoke of his confidence that his game would return following a rough start to the season.
"This is a game that you need consistency to stay in it and play in," Ortiz said. "It can walk away from you in a long period of time but it can't walk away from you from one day to the next. "
Ortiz was asked about the status of his contract and the possibility of signing an extension with the Red Sox. The Red Sox hold a $12.5 million option for the 2011 season.
"I haven't talked to nobody about that [contract extension], it's something that we're going to talk about at the end of the season," Ortiz said. "I don't know when, but at some...
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard said that the current Boston relievers have the potential and track records to comprise "a really good bullpen," but he was non-commital on the question of whether the team needed to make a trade for a reliever prior to the July 31 deadline for non-waiver trades.

I guess we’ll see in the next few days if they feel like we need some more arms out there.”
Jack Tatum, the former Raiders defensive back whose paralyzing hit on Patriots wide receiver Darryl Stingley during an exhibition game in 1978 made him a target of New England fans, died Tuesday at 61 after a heart attack, according to Ohio's 10TV.com. Tatum was an All-American at Ohio State who went on to have a 10-year career in the NFL, spending nine of those seasons in Oakland. Tatum, who went to three Pro Bowls, was nicknamed "The Assassin" and played off his reputation as a hard-hitting defensive back who often left wide receivers with concussions or worse.
Tatum had been dealing with health issues of his own the past seven years, including diabetes and an arterial blockage that forced the amputation of his right leg.
