David Ortiz will be doing . . . um, stuff and things for the Red Sox

David Ortiz seems pretty happy in retirement, but since before he hung up his cleats last season, he and the Sox have both said that he’d have a role with the team in some capacity or another going forward. Which makes obvious sense given how popular he is with both the fan base and with players.

What role will that be? Today WEEI.com ran a story with a headline suggesting that we finally have an answer to that question. Here it is:

And what is it? Here, in Ortiz’s words is the answer:

“I’m going to be doing different things with the Red Sox,” Ortiz said. “I’m going to be up in the front office. Doing some things like going seeing players. That’s going to happen. At some point you’re going to see more often around, things like spring training. Pretty much what the other guys normally do.”

Glad we got that cleared up.
