The legendary David ortiz broke the silence on who is the greatest player of all time, mentioning the all-time home run leader, Barry Bonds.
Ortiz added that he believes the San Francisco Giants legend is definitely a Hall of Famer.
he Red Sox legend made the TMZ Sports claim in Beverly Hills this week… saying that Bonds is his MLB GOAT
“He’s the best player of all time,” said Big Papi.
Of course, there’s no denying that Bonds is statistically the best of all time… he hit 762 home runs and stole 514 bases while winning SEVEN MVP awards in his 22 years in the majors.
The problem … many believed the former outfielder was using performance-enhancing drugs to aid his game, which is why he has yet to be enshrined in Cooperstown.
Still, Ortiz clearly believes this is a mistake that needs to be corrected … and if you’ve seen any kind of Bonds highlights, it’s hard to argue, right?
