Red Sox rumors: David Ortiz just wants one extra year from Boston Red Sox

Red Sox rumors address the recent comments from David Ortiz. These Boston Red Sox rumors should please fans, as David Ortiz says that he simply wants a one-year contract extension from the team. According to a report from Thursday (Jan. 30), the star designated hitter has decided to clarify statements he made about potentially signing with a new team if he didn't get a nice extension from the team.

Heroin Happy Meals?

In an interview with WEEI, he stated, "We're good. We're good. We talked, they're talking and I just asked for one year. I didn't ask for anything crazy. It wasn't like I asked for a five-year deal. It's a one-year extension I asked for. I've got a contract for this year. I was asking for a one-year extension for next year."

That seems like a much easier demand for the front office to deal with, especially if the feeling is that he can continue putting up numbers like he did in the 2013 MLB season. he is coming off a year where he had a .309 batting average, 30 home runs, and 103 RBIs before leading the team to the World Series and taking home the postseason MVP. That alone might be worth giving him an extension.

There hasn't been much of a response from the front office since David Ortiz start making comments about his contract, but it is also not fresh news that he is popping up in Boston Red Sox rumors again. It has become very familiar to hear that he wants to talk about money in the offseason, but it might become important to get a deal done just to keep him focused on the 2014 MLB season.
