FORT MYERS, Fla. -- David Ortiz ripped former manager Bobby Valentine on Tuesday, saying, “He did things I’d never seen in the game before.”
Ortiz, who said he expects to be ready for Opening Day as the strength of his troubled Achilles heel improves, said, “An organization and a team is like the human body. If the head is right, the body is gonna function right. But if the head is mixed up they’re going to be all over the place. That was part of our situation last year. Guys weren’t comfortable with the manager we had.
