From the Field: David Ortiz, dh, Boston Red Sox

With 10 All-Star selections, 6 Silver Slugger awards and 541 career HR, its hard to think that Big Papi wont be a first ballot HOF player. That said, there is the cloud of PEDs floating over him–warranted or not–that could put a kink in things.  Overall, I think he does deserve to be in the hall.

This might be one of the coolers autographs in my collection.
