A variety of bombs by Ortiz

NEW YORK -- Big Papi apparently has had enough of the latest saga in the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry.

After Wednesday night’s 11-6 rout, David Ortiz let out a few expletives when he was asked again about his bat flip following a home run off New York rookie reliever Hector Noesi in Tuesday's win. Ortiz homered again Wednesday, hitting a two-run shot off A.J. Burnett.

“I don't want to be on national news tomorrow,” replied Ortiz on not flipping his bat Wednesday. “I don’t want to have you guys asking me the same questions. I've got almost 370 bombs in the big leagues and everybody wants to make a big deal because I bat flip one of them. [Expletive] that [expletive], man. If I have to make that video on my [expletive], let’s see how many bat flips I got on this [expletive]. Good night.”
