David Ortiz was certainly not hiding the way he feels about Mookie Betts last night. Big Papi went as far as to say he is his son when Alex Rodriguez asked him why he had his arm around Mookie. You can tell Ortiz truly respects Mookie in that manner and is very proud of the way Betts has established himself as a man of great character on and off the field. It felt like an incredible passing of the torch of Red Sox legends as Ortiz was able to mentor and help mold Mookie Betts into the superstar he has become today. The way David Ortiz had his arm around Mookie Betts the whole interview tells me he still misses being a part of Red Sox clubhouse.
