David Ortiz Supports A-Rod

Red_Sox_David_Ortiz_2012Alex Rodriguez received overwhelming support from his manager and teammates when Ryan Dempster plunked the embattled New York Yankees slugger on Sunday night.

Three days later, David Ortiz also stuck up for Rodriguez, telling USA TODAY Sports that he disapproved of Dempster throwing at Rodriguez.

I didn’t like it. I don’t think it was the right thing to do,” Ortiz told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. “But we don’t all think alike, and the guy who did it — Dempster — is a great guy.”

Rodriguez has come under intense scrutiny for his involvement in the Biogenesis case and his appeal of a 211-game suspension from Major League Baseball.
