David Ortiz: "I'd Like To Be Back With Red Sox"

After making some curious comments a few weeks ago regarding wanting to leave the Boston Red Sox for the New York Yankees, slugger David Ortiz told the media last night that he would definitely like to be with the Sox and that his comments were taken out of context.

"Of course, I would like to come back," he said. "They have a lot of things going on right now. So once they go through all the stuff, GM and managing things, I think they're going to start talking to the players. So, we'll see. We've got time."

"I never said that I would sign with the Yankees. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no," he said. "They asked me if I would play for the Yankees. I said I would think about it. But I didn't confirm to nobody that I would play for the Yankees. I'm still a Red Sox, aren't I?"
