With word of the Boston Red Sox and David Ortiz nearing a two-year contract agreement, let’s hear your thoughts on the potential deal.

It was reported yesterday that Ortiz and the Red Sox were finalizing a pact that would fulfill the slugger’s desire for a two-year extension. Money figures were unknown, but it’s been reported that Ortiz was seeking a new contract in the $25 million range. Boston is holding out for a few million less, but it didn’t seem like the ongoing negotiations would stop the ultimate completion of a deal.

It was later reported that to describe the deal as being finalized was premature, but talks certainly appear to be ongoing. The initial report said a contract could be announced by the end of the week.

Ortiz hit .318/.415/.611 with 26 doubles and 23 home runs over 324 at-bats last season. He’s set to turn 37 years old next month and owns a career line of .285/.380/.547.
