David Ortiz's bad press and poor start were swept under the rug with a better second half (.258-16-52). That shouldn't hide the holes in his swing that reared their ugly heads one year after wrist surgery. His bat speed and HR/FB are dwindling, and he lost his first base eligibility. He'll still have some semblance of power, though, so if you can deal with the inflexibility he provides, he could be an OK power value if he falls.
