The Big Oh (Fer)

A’s fans will want to pull out their hair when I write this (the jinx factor, after all), but have to pull it out now, because it’s a sentence that may not be written again in 2008.

Boston’s David Ortiz is 0-for-10 and has now left seven men in scoring position. He grounded out against Joe Blanton with the bases loaded in the fifth, preserving a 1-1 tie.  Ortiz has also failed twice with the bases loaded in the three games.

Digest that.
