    I had to laugh when I read that a) Ortiz will be fine and b) onlookers captured the shooter, then proceeded to beat the shit out of him. Police will question him... when he’s recovered from his injuries.

    As a Royals fan still saddened over the death of Yordano Ventura, I'll ask it.

    Why do these guys go back to the D.R.? They're going to be targets because of their fame and wealth.

    Just rent out a warehouse in Tribeca and throw your own damn party and hire your damn models for it.

    Probably for the same reason guys go back to south Central or any number of crime-ridden areas. Nipsy Hustle could have left that hood behind, instead he tried to help out his community. Part of that was hiring felons at his store who weren't permitted to have handguns. So when that guy came up and shot him, there was no one around who was armed and could shoot back, which allowed the guy to drop the coup de grace.

    Hopefully those instances will be a wake up call; if you can get out, stay out, and don't look back.

    Looks like he was shot from under a table.

    IIRC, didn't Salvador Perez relocate family members, including his mother, from Venezuela to the Kansas City area?

    If the Yankees were behind this, they're years too late.

    They didn't even have the balls to brush him off the plate.

    Love the vigilante justice shown by the other citizens, what real time photos. Don't mess with Papi.

    Per the WWL, Red Sox are sending a plane to the Dominican Republic to take Ortiz to Boston for further treatment.

    When they show up to the hospital in the DR, do the Red Sox doctors say “this is our fucking patient”?
