Red Sox are retiring David Ortiz's No. 34 eight months after his last game. Even Derek Jeter had to wait two full seasons to see the Yankees retire his No. 2. John Farrell took note yesterday of the Sox's expedience with Big Papi. "The fact that his is being done so soon after retiring, I think speaks volumes -- what he's meant to the city, what he's meant to the organization."
