For the sake of his pitching staff, Joe Girardi may want to quit talking about David Ortiz.
"I don't care what Joe Girardi says," Ortiz said. "Take it like a man. I'm done with that."
Ortiz, who gently put his bat down after his home run in the first inning, said that he didn't think his bat-flip was a big deal.
"I don't want to have you guys asking me the same questions. I got almost 370 bombs in the big leagues and everybody wants to make a big deal because I bat-flip one of them," he said. "(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."
The Red Sox will go for the series sweep in New York on Thursday night.
