David Ortiz Nixes Comeback Rumors 'It's Not that Easy'

6/6/2017 6:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Big Papi says he's NOT gonna unretire and hit for the Boston Red Sox this season -- despite a big endorsement from his legendary ex-teammate, Pedro Martinez

Pedro got everyone talking Monday when he tweeted out, "Big Papi is working out, and I know he is in baseball shape, and the @RedSox could use a bit of his bat."

So, when we saw David Ortiz at CC & Amber Sabathia's PitCCh At Foundation charity event in NYC, we had to ask if a comeback was on the table. 

Unfortunately, Ortiz shoots that down ... telling TMZ Sports he's too busy enjoying his retirement and watching quality television programming.

EXCLUSIVE

Michael Rapaport says the scumbag who hurled racist taunts at Orioles star Adam Jones should be banned from all MLB games for life ... period. 

Rapaport is really pissed off about the situation -- with Jones claiming Red Sox fans yelled the n-word at him during the Monday night game at Fenway Park. 

Rap -- a huge Yankees fan -- said the fans behind the taunts are disgusting and should never step foot inside an MLB stadium ever again. 

We also spoke with Judd Nelson who's also upset -- and says he's shocked the other people in the stands didn't "take care of that guy."  

Translation -- non-racists shoulda beat the racist's ass. 

For what it's worth, Jones received a very warm ovation from the fans in Beantown before his first at-bat Tuesday night. Pretty awesome.

Boston Red Sox Apologize to Adam Jones 'Sickened' By Fan's Racist Behavior

Breaking News

The Boston Red Sox have issued an apology to Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones after a fan allegedly made racist comments and threw peanuts at the outfielder during Monday night's game.

The 5-time All Star says he was called the N-word "a handful of times" and had a bag of the ballpark snacks thrown at him while playing center field at Fenway Park, he told USA Today.

"The Red Sox want to publicly apologize to Adam Jones and the entire Orioles organization for what occurred at Fenway Park Monday night," Sox President Sam Kennedy says.

"No player should have an object thrown at him on the playing field, nor be subjected to any kind of racism at Fenway Park."

"The Red Sox have zero tolerance for such inexcusable behavior, and our entire organization and our fans are sickened by the conduct of an ignorant few."

The team ejected the fan Monday night, but is still reviewing the incident to determine any further punishment.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's daughter Bernice also weighed in on the incident:

Forget about fracking for a second ... there's another MAJOR issue on Matt Damon's mind -- the ailing elbow of Red Sox ace David Price.

We got Matt out in NYC and talked a little Boston sports, first congratulating him on Tom Brady's jerseys getting recovered (Damon had nothing with it) then asking his level of excitement for the Sox season.

That's when Damon revealed his deepest darkest fears to us ... telling our guy he's worried about Price's injured elbow, which reports say could keep him out until late May.

Don't worry ... the Sox are still the Vegas favorites to win the AL.

EXCLUSIVE

There will be NO EIGHTH CHILD for Johnny Damon ... 'cause the ex-MLB star says he just got snipped for the second time ... after his first vasectomy didn't quite hold up.

The former Red Sox stud was at the Mohegan Sun 20th Anniversary party with his wife, Michelle -- when they were asked if they were planning to add another Damon to the already massive family!

That's when Johnny revealed that he already tried to put a stop to his procreating with a vasectomy a few years ago -- but it didn't work ... and Michelle got pregnant with his 7th kid!

Damon says he had to go back and have a doctor rework his man plumbing -- "Hopefully, this one worked."

FYI, Damon's kind of an anomaly -- 'cause less than 1 PERCENT of vasectomies fail the first time ... according to Healthline.com.

EXCLUSIVE

Alex Rodriguez says he's definitely a fan of David Ortiz -- but when it comes to rooting for the MLB legend in his last playoff run ... A-Rod stopped short of saying he was rooting for him.

It all went down outside of Craig's in West Hollywood -- Alex was in a good mood and had nothing but love for Big Papi ... but scoffed at the idea of rooting for the Red Sox. 

FYI, the Sox lost Game 1 Thursday night ... but the Yankees didn't make the playoffs.

The rivalry is still VERY real when it comes to the Sox and the Yankees ... just ask Rob Kardashian who tells TMZ Sports he almost got his ass kicked in Beantown for rockin' his Yanks hat.

Rob says he's still a Dodgers fan at heart -- after all, he was born and raised in L.A. -- but says his lady Blac Chyna got sick of the L.A. lid and pressured him to switch it up. 

So, Rob chose the pinstripes ... but forgot how much the Yanks are hated in Red Sox country -- and says his fashion choice almost got him beat the hell up.  

Hey, it's rough out there.

Yoan Moncada isn't in the big leagues yet ... but he just spent $45k to make sure his swag is MAJOR ... turning his i8 BMW into a bona fide cool machine that freaking GLOWS IN THE DARK.

Final price tag ... $45k.

Stacey Dash to ESPN End Schilling's Suspension ... He Was Right!

8/27/2015 3:47 PM PDT

"Clueless" star Stacey Dash says Curt Schilling has the truth on his side, and ESPN was way outta line when it benched him for his controversial Muslim/Nazi tweet.

H/T BSO for pointing out Dash jumping to Schilling's defense. She tweeted that the worldwide leader actually owes the ex Red Sox ace an apology. As Dash put it ... "So, now we can't tweet things that are true?"

You'll recall Schilling posted a meme comparing today's radical Muslims to Nazis in the 1940s. ESPN immediately pulled him from its Little League World Series coverage.

Schilling hasn't had this kinda rotation support since Randy Johnson.

EXCLUSIVE

Boston Red Sox star Pablo Sandoval broke the CARDINAL RULE when it comes to dropping a deuce during a MLB game ... so claims David Price who says Pablo needs to be smarter on the crapper. 

As you've probably heard ... Sandoval was benched by the team after he got caught liking sexy photos on Instagram while the Sox were playing the Braves earlier this week. 

Pablo later said he was using his phone while taking care of biz in the clubhouse bathroom ... and "f**ked up" by violating the team's no social media during games policy.  

Which brings us to Price -- a 4-time All Star and Cy Young winner -- who tells us EVERYONE in the MLB uses their phones when nature calls, but ya GOTTA be able to show restraint and not leave a digital trail.  

Check out the clip ... Price is hilarious ... and also dishes out some hygienic advice for all of you non-professional athletes who also enjoy a good B.M.
