Well F him then. I will lose no sleep over the misery/suffering of a grabber and an outspoken celebrity supporter of illegal immigration.

Red Sox sending plane to bring Ortiz to Boston Hospital as soon as he can travel
Sort of a no brainer, not only is MGH a world class hospital, but through his tenure as a ball player they have all his records and he's familiar with at least some of the doctors.

If I had a choice between a hospital in DR, Boston, or anyplace between I'd go to Boston too.

Apparently a drug lord thought Papi was having an affair with his wife, and hired 2 cops to shoot Ortiz.

1 - the cops suck if they couldn't hit Ortiz from point-blank with a lethal shot
B. - the shooter that got his ish kicked in after the shooting probably was hoping he'd die there so he wouldn't have to deal with the drug czar
iii - why is Ortiz having an affair? His wife is not unattractive

Reports this afternoon say they had to remove his colon , part of his intestine and his liver is damaged.
He's got a very long road to recovery.
I just hope he doesn't have to spend the rest of his life toting a bag.

If his colon is gone, the bag will most likely be a part of his life.

1. Its possible the goal wasn’t murder but warning.

iii. 43 multi millionaire, you think his wife’s looks enter into this?

Piling a bunch of crap on the guy for having an opinion. Which is as legitimate as yours. Grow up.
Yeah, I’m sure my crap is impacting him.

Can you guess the difference between him voicing his “opinion” by publicly trashing Trump, supporting illegal immigration and advocating for gun control on the one hand, and me voicing my opinion that he’s a piece of shit for it in this thread?

So does he get a pass because he’s big papi?

For the record I’m not wishing him dead or obstructing his surgery or anything.

so anyone else this wouldn't happen for them....

Big Papi receiving specialized care at MGH. Not only that...but he received a police escort from Logan to the hospital.

Must be nice to be "special".....

I thought the same thing when I saw it on the news this morning. Wonder if I had been shot on a vacation to the DR if I'd have got a sp escort to the hospital in boston? Did tax payer dollars go toward that escort?

The Red Sox paid for the private medical flight. Not sure if they paid for the police escort or if the state picked up the tab on that one.

I doubt that you or I would receive the same level of care as he is getting at the hospital. They would probably just assign a medical assistant to me if this happened...

I know the flight was paid for by the bosox......I have no issue there.....private money. I do have a problem with tax dollars going toward a police escort that was completely not necessary. Do motorists pull over any faster for blue lights than red ones? The whole police escort was a bunch or f***ing crap.

agreed. he obviously survived a 4 hour flight from the DR. I'm sure 5 or 10 more minutes in the ambulance wouldn't have killed him.

I don't know who paid for the escort. It's possible it was not on the tax payers dime. But I would be interested to know either way.
