Doin Big Papi Sightings

What do you do after you get your $12.5M option picked up by the Red Sox? Duh, you head straight to Vegas to celebrate with Chappy! Okay, okay I don’t really think that was Big Papi’s plan, but that’s the way I remember it, so I’m sticking to that story. It’s funny because I was against going to Pure night club, but was very happy my buddy followed some chicks there or this meeting wouldn’t have been possible. Sure, I might have seen him later on the $10K minimum blackjack tables, but it was much more fun being in the relaxed nightclub scene with some cocktails. What could make me like one of the most likeable guys in baseball more? The fact that he pushed aside his own Maverick Carter wanna-be, and let me chat for a little, and even let me get a picture with him. It’s refreshing in the TMZ age, where I’m sure he gets drunk guys like me bugging him all the time that he took the time to acknowledge my existence. He could’ve easily let his goon push me aside, but being the nice guy he is he pushed his goon aside. Unfortunately, I also found out that he won’t be voiding his contract to take Jack Cust’s spot as the A’s DH anytime soon. That question did get him to chuckle though!
