Red Sox Notebook

David Ortiz getting positive feedback for speech

A day after he said, “This is our [expletive] city,” during a pregame tribute to the Boston Marathon bombing victims and survivors, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said he had received many positive comments about the remark.

“A lot,” Ortiz said Sunday. “It was something I said. I don’t know how emotional I get sometimes. What we’ve been through this week, that was my feeling. I was hurting like everyone else. That’s how I am.”
