Big Papi Needs to Sit for Game 3

David Ortiz is in a slump again; he is having a hard time catching up to fastballs and Angels pitchers are giving him a steady diet of them.  He is now 0-8 in the ALDS with 4 strikeouts and has not even hit the ball hard on any of his outs.  Big Papi has a career average of .205 against Angels Game 3 starter Scott Kazimir so don’t expect a big turnaround at Fenway.

Casey Kotchman has 2 hits in 5 career at bats against Kazmir so it might be time to put him at first and have Lowell DH for Game 3.
