Sporting both of his Red Sox World Series rings, Ortiz called it an honor to be back, in hopes of helping this club win another World Series championship and possibly one day being able to retire as a member of the Red Sox. Martinez and Ortiz are very close friends, and in terms of contract negotiations, Martinez believes the Sox got it right this time. Valentine threw his coaching staff under the bus, and also claimed that David Ortiz exaggerated the seriousness of his injury rather than come back and play for a team that wasn't making the playoffs.
