Little Papi

Players who have more home runs than David Ortiz this season:
  • Alex Rodriguez, who missed five weeks of the season with a hip injury.
  • Willie Bloomquist, whose only extra base hit last season was a double.
  • A handful of NL pitchers, including Paul Maholm, who now has 1 career home run -- in fact, at a "robust" .611, Ortiz and Maholm have identical OPS's on the season.
  • Matt LaPorta, who has spent all of about 15 minutes in the majors.
  • Emilio Bonafacio, who han't even hit the ball to the warning track this season. Bonafacio has not heard of Carl Yastrzemski.
I was sort of hoping that Andy Sonnanstine would jack one today so I could say an AL pitcher had more home runs than Papi before the start of interleague play.
