Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/27/2013

It's the crunch time for baseball, and once again a Boston Red Sox hitter is our Sportsman of the Week.  David Ortiz had a week that has all of  baseball scratching their heads...how to get him out.  Over the first four games of the World Series, Big Papi was 8 out of 11 (.727), with 2 HR and a double.  He scored 5 and knocked in 5.  He also tied a World Series record by reaching base on nine straight plate appearances (counting Monday's effort, in which he was 3/4 and raised his .727 average if that's possible).  It was a very tough decision given Calvin Johnson's unbelievable effort, but it is the World Series, so David Ortiz is your Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
