--Peter King, Sports Illustrated
War Room:
“A deeply reported, thoroughly engaging look at what it takes to succeed in the NFL.”

We all know the player David Ortiz. He's great no question I was amazed to learn about the man, his dedication to his teammates, the fans, and the city of Boston. I've been a fan of the Red Sox my whole life but I've always appreciated great players regardless of the teams they played for "big papi" is one of those greats. The book is a excellent insight to what Ortiz went through as a player and man

Glosses over a lot of the personal stuff. Wish hed done another 100 pages. Lot of residual anger but not much time spent on details

Di Colin Moore - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

David Ortiz's new book can be summed up in one word: Pride. Ortiz is an intensely proud man who derives immense satisfaction from his success, as he should. He came from a poor family in small town in the Dominican Republic, where the ground literally seeped battery acid because of a local recycling plant. The Ortiz family hustled for every Dominican Peso they earned, and it was clear from a young age that the pressure was on David to change their situation. Needless to say, he delivered in spades and then some, though sadly, his mother tragically died in a car accident before most of his greatest baseball highlights. David Ortiz had a lot of accomplishments during his career, on and off the field, and this book will make sure you know every one of them.

Ortiz was immensely confident in his abilities right from the beginning of his career, and he seems to still hold a grudge against anyone who he feels didn't fully appreciate his value. The guilty parties include (among others): former Minnesota Twins manager Tom Kelly, who Ortiz thinks never gave him a chance to prove himself. Theo Epstein is on the list because Ortiz thinks the former Boston Red Sox GM always undervalued him during contract negotiation, which only irritated him more when the team spent a fortune on unproven free agents. (Hello, Carl Crawford, and many many others.) Finally, there's former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, who Ortiz has clearly never forgiven for pinch-hitting for him in 2010. On the other hand, if you were deemed appropriately supportive (think Grady Little or John Farrell,) that makes all the difference.

Papi: My Story is a fairly straight forward recollection of David Ortiz's career, from his time with the Seattle Mariners, to the Minnesota Twins, and of course, eventually the Boston Red Sox. It's not some salacious "tell-all" that's full of behind-the-scenes dirt. The only two minor exceptions are the mention of a near fight with one teammate, and the story of another former teammate crying on the phone while talking to Ortiz. Other than that, most of this information should be familiar to Red Sox fans, except now you hear it from Ortiz's perspective.

There are a few minor "glitches" to this book. First, some stories/comments about Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez are unnecessarily repeated. Second, English is not David Ortiz's first language, so it's understood that co-author Michael Holley has some influence on how the stories are told. That's fine, except that there are a few sections where Ortiz's voice suddenly seems completely lost, and it sounds like Holley is now talking. Fortunately, that only lasts for a paragraph or two here and there.

The discussion of Ortiz's marriage troubles is particularly disjointed, especially when it comes to the final resolution. Finally, Ortiz's relationship with Bobby Valentine as Sox manager feels awkwardly presented. Ortiz makes it clear that he had a (justifiably) negative view of Valentine early on which never seemed to change. However he somehow ends up angry when Valentine speaks poorly of him after the 2012 season, claiming he had tried to help the manager. Not sure how we got there, but in the long run, we can all agree Valentine was a disaster, so let's move on.

The personal favorite chapter of this book was the one discussing the 2013 Red Sox team and what they went through in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing. The 2004 Red Sox changed what it meant to be a baseball fan in Boston, so let's set them aside in their own category. After that, the 2013 squad is our all-time favorite team. They played an important part in helping the city heal that year (especially Ortiz's famous speech,) and they were relentless all season long. As Ortiz points out, their longest losing streak of the year was two games.

At the end of the day, David Ortiz had an amazing 20-year career in the Major Leagues which will eventually lead to Cooperstown. After all he went through (mostly good, with some bad), and the constant intense media glare he was subjected to, he's more than earned the right to tell his story from his perspective. For his fans, Papi: My Story is a fun opportunity to relive many great moments one more time with the man himself.
