After the game, he released a statement that said, in part: “Based on the way I lived my life I’m surprised to learn I tested positive. I will find out what I tested positive for. Based on whatever I learn, I will share this information with the club and the public. You know me. I will not hide and I will not make excuses.”
It would be nice if Ortiz, who has been a wonderful story over the past six seasons, is vindicated too.
Maybe that’s the 12-year-old in me speaking. I just don’t know.
