Ortiz jerseys top MLB sales list

Ortiz Jerseys Top MLB Sales List
By Brian Fitzsimmons

It's been quite a week for David Ortiz.

Boston's veteran slugger was lucky enough to snap a quick selfie with Barack Obama on Tuesday, when the Red Sox presented the president with a No. 44 Red Sox jersey.

Two days later, MLB.com announced Big Papi –- the 2013 World Series MVP –- was the offseason's hottest-selling jersey, ahead of teammate Dustin Pedroia and New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina came in at fourth, while Los Angeles Dodgers' Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw was fifth.

Several other young players cracked the list, as Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen and San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey rounded out the top seven.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Mariners' big free agent acquisition, second baseman Robinson Cano, followed New York Mets third baseman David Wright, who came in eighth. Baltimore Orioles rising star Manny Machado was a surprising addition to the top 10.

Glad to see Big Papi # 1. Love the man & Dustin Pedroia & the rest of the Red Sox. Hoping for a re-peat of last year. Glad I got one team who knows where the top spot is. My Mets keep thinking it's last place.

"Baseball been berry berry good to me!" remember the quote from SNL by Garrett Morris as "Chico Ecuela" baseball Dominican player?

i think Mr Ortiz deserves it, never heard of a player having such a year except the year of the Sosa-McGuire home run derby, what happened t M. Cabrera of the tigers, he's had so many famous years
