The fraudulent myth of Big Papi

9F)ans and obsequious sportswriters will continue to lap up every last pre-game ceremony of Ortiz’s farewell tour (the one he swore he’d never take). But while they continue their relentless peddling of the myth of Big Papi, the rest of us should feel confident in this truth: David Ortiz is a jerk.
