CAP CANA, Dominican Republic — David Ortiz reserved judgment when asked tonight what effect Bobby Valentine would have on the Red Sox.
"I don't know," the free agent designated hitter said. "We'll see. . . . Hopefully I'll get to find out."
Ortiz said he does not know Valentine well, other than occasional conversations at All-Star games.
"I've talked to Bobby before, asked him some questions," he said. "That's about it."
So does Ortiz expect to be playing for Valentine next season?
"No comment," he said, laughing.
Ortiz will be doing a press event tomorrow and we'll have much more from him.
Johnny Damon is here, too. He said he is anxious to see what Valentine will bring to the Red Sox.
"It's going to be interesting, that's for sure," he said.
