Red Sox | David Ortiz sparks team in return

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (heel) gave an emotion speech to the crowd at Fenway Park Saturday, April 20, as baseball returned five days after the bombings at the Boston Marathon shook the city, state and country. "This is our (expletive) city, and nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong!," Ortiz said. He then went 2-for-4 with his first RBI in his season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz had played just once since July 17, 2012, and not at all this season. He was rusty during his minor-league rehab, and has traditionally been a slow starter, but he looked good at the dish Saturday. If you've been waiting on him for fantasy purposes, it appears safe to plug him back into the active lineup.
