Sox Pick Up Ortiz Option

The Red Sox have picked up the $12.5 million option on David Ortiz. They also picked up Scott Atchison's option, while declining the options on Bill Hall and Felipe Lopez.

The Tigers have traded minor league shortstop Brent Dlugach to Boston. Dlugach hit .258/.303/.360 for Toledo (AAA) in 2010, quite a drop from his 2009 season at the same level. His three plate appearances for the Tigers in 2009 are his only big league experience.
Example
Sparky Anderson died earlier today. He was 76. There were news reports yesterday that Anderson was in hospice, suffering from dementia.

Funny how as you get older, 76 seems too young to go. I doubt I would have thought that 30 years ago.

Is it bad that the first thing I thought of yesterday when I heard Anderson had dementia was people had probably heard him muttering about "clogging the bases"?

Glad we will get to see Papi again.

And yes, 76 is seeming younger and younger.

And beltre declined his option, going to be a free agent.
