Coach's Stupidity Knocks Papi Back Even More

We all know that our beloved "Big Papi" David Ortiz has suffered through the worst slump in his career, but finally, when he starts to show a little bit of improvement, a stupid mistake by the third base coach knocks him off his game again.

I am sure every fan was thinking the same thing as me yesterday: "Why is Papi trying to steal second?"

Well, watching the replay it's obvious, it's because he was given the sign to steal.

Red Sox third base coach Demarlo Hale actually gave the steal sign, and like he was supposed to do, "Papi" took off, dead in the water from the start. He was out by 10 feet, then you saw the look of disgust on his face and you knew this was another setback.

This kind of mistake is unacceptable to me, and I hope there is no lingering effects.
