David Ortiz is under contract with the Boston Red Sox for the 2014 season but that is not stopping the 2013 World Series MVP from asking for more.
Ortiz, 38, wants a multi-year contract from the Red Sox saying it could be “time to move on” if they team does not.
When asked how long he expected to continue playing Ortiz ranged from two to ten years.
“As long as they keep offering me a job and I keep doing what I’m supposed to do and the relationship keeps on building up, I’m going to be there. Hopefully, I won’t have to go and wear another uniform.” Ortiz said in an interview on Sunday.
Ortiz signed a two-year deal worth $26 million prior to last season which increased to $30 million in value after he avoided the disabled list in 2013.
Ortiz finished the season with a .309/.395/.564 line with 30 home runs and 103 RBI. It’s doubtful that he leaves Boston.
