Huh? What bad shoulder? He looked fine during the playoffs.

I don't think so. He hurt the shoulder near mid season, if I remember correctly, and he did OK after that. This story makes me think he'll be fine.

Don't worry.

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic -- David Ortiz is recovering from a nagging right-shoulder injury and hopes to be healthy when spring training starts next month.

Ortiz said Wednesday's workout in Quisqueya Stadium was the first "strong training session" since last year's World Series.

"My shoulder is feeling better, thanks to the medicines and the exercise program that the Red Sox doctors recommended," Ortiz said. "I'll be 100 percent healthy when spring training arrives."
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

i really wouldn't worry to much, im sure we will hear more if the injury becomes troublesome. If it is bothering him in spring training i think you should start to worry.

I would be suprised if he matched last year's numbers but you could probably bank on .280-30-100 from him

IF he can stay healthy then I think he'll match last years #s. The guy obviously can hit and he'll still have that prime cleanup spot behind Manny.

LOL. Try Higher pimp unless you are refering to Aubrey Huff, Ortiz will have no problem matching last years number in my opinion, I just traded for him 2 weeks ago and I expect .290-40-120 with no problem if healthy. (and more)

He had the bad shoulder last year. And it barely slowed him down. He should be 100% by spring training. I wouldn't be surprised to see him put up bigger numbers next year.
