We Welcome Back Mr. Ortiz to the hallowed grounds of Fenway

He has returned, my friends. He has risen from Pawtucket (and Portland) and has taken his seat at the right hand of Manny (assuming Manny's even playing tonight). He has come to wash home runners once stranded in scoring position, and to judge relief pitchers of other teams late in games. Oh, Ortiz, deliver us from the loss column, and lead us to an AL East pennant.

With him, he brings the gift of clutch hitting, because he loves us and he wants us to be happy. For us, he smiles and lets us know it will be ok, because his will is good. To us, he will bring much joy and happiness, because he is the chosen one.

Yes, everyone. David Ortiz has returned, and the sacrifices made to bring him into our lives are tolerable. Let us rejoice... and destroy Joba Chamberlain. Amen.
