Boston Red Sox Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster “repair” phone David Ortiz destroyed

  • David Whitlock

Ryan Dempster, known as one of the great MLB clubhouse hacks, along with teammate Jonny Gomes had some fun at the Ortiz phone destruction from Saturday night.  They “repaired” the phone with a more, uh, crude approach of tin cans and wire.  Jenny Dell of NESN had the tweet.

 

And here was the broadcast intragame update by Dell (via MLB.com):

A little later, David Ortiz poked some fun at himself after a 2-run homer by recreating the “crime” (also via MLB.com)

As they say in poker: “winners tell jokes, losers say ‘deal’ ” as the Red Sox took both key Saturday and Sunday’s games from the division rival Baltimore Orioles.  It’s all good in Beantown.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
