Red Sox DH David Ortiz is planning to retire at the end of the 2016 MLB season,

according to a report from FOX baseball reporter Ken Rosenthal Tuesday, citing unnamed sources.

As someone who has always loved the Red Sox, it's almost like I will have to retire with David. See what I did there? I called him David, because clearly we're on a first name basis. David Ortiz came to the team in January of 2003 and played among many of my all-time Red Sock favorites including Manny Ramirez, Johhny Damon, Jason Varitek and more..

It'll be a sad day to watch Ortiz walk off the field for the last time, but with every sunrise there must be a sunset. <Too much?
