David Ortiz selling baseball mementos, household items

WESTON, Mass. (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is cleaning house, and you might be surprised by what he’s selling.

The man known to Red Sox fans as Big Papi is, of course, selling tons of memorabilia from his baseball career at an estate sale scheduled for Saturday at his home in the affluent Boston suburb of Weston. But he is also selling other odds and sundry, including a neon Rolls Royce sign, a backyard composter and a stone owl sculpture.

“In addition to some exceptional sports memorabilia, you’ll find beautiful furniture and decor, designer ladies clothing and accessories, gym equipment, game room tables and more,” the company running the sale said on its website.

Feels like there’s a broader story to this, doesn’t it?

The stone owl beat David Ortiz in a foot race.

I guess someone is going to the media and/or MLB about steroid use unless he gets the money from Papi by Sunday at midnight.

He can't be broke already, can he?

Probably needs some form of punctuation. He's either selling "designer ladies' clothing and accessories" or "designer ladies, clothing, and accessories." Either way, it's hard to find those things in his size.

Perhaps he's just downsizing. His upstairs apartment in the Smaht Pahk commercial can't be that big.

I have a feeling Danny Partridge is behind this.

Any of Papi's pickles go missing lately?

Thank you for getting the reference. Classic episode.

Marie Kondo strikes again!

LOL!!!!

Actually I bought her book and after a quick read did a purge of stuff. I can't believe I actually have empty dresser drawers now.

You haven't seen his medical bills for making the poor decision of getting shot.

Yeah didn't he get flown to the US? I doubt he flew commercial.

It would not be too unusual for a former pro-athlete to go broke this quickly. Of course, he might just be getting rid of old junk that he doesn't want anymore.

Little too late to start the Mookie Fund now, Papi.

1. Is this for charity or personal gain?
2. Backyard composter?
3. Stone owl sculpture?
4. Great stuff
5. Are there used steroid needles or HGH needles included?

Thank you for getting the reference. Classic episode.


Maybe it's because I buy and sell stuff, but that is really the only episode I distinctly remember even though I know I probably saw most of them when Nick-at-Nite picked up the show in the mid-90s. 10-year-old me thought the progression to Danny selling Keith's mattress was just hilarious.

It definitely changed the way I store my socks.
