ORTIZ STRIKES OUT IN THE TRICKED-OUT CAR DEPARTMENT: WBZ-TV notes that pseudo-struggling Red Sox first baseman David Ortiz is “selling his 2005 Mercedes-Benz: SL-Class SL65 AMG to the highest bidder on eBay. Ortiz will deliver the car to the winner at Fenway Park.”
The Ebay description notes that Ortiz bought it for himself after the 2004 World Series with a sticker price of $200,000. Ortiz then added $35K worth of accessories.
The news is a real letdown for us, as we were holding out hope that Darius Miles and/or Alfonso Soriano and/or Darren McFadden would be the next sports celebs to sell off their sick sleds on the auction site.
