Boston Red Sox cancel David Ortiz bobblehead giveaway because, well, just see for yourself

The Boston Red Sox are bidding a long farewell to slugger David Ortiz, who last year announced that he would retire following the 2016 season. And what better, more baseball-y way to celebrate a 10-time All-Star and three-time World Series winner than with a crummy bobblehead figurine?

Huh? What could be so wrong with bobbleheads that they’re unacceptable? It’s not like we expect great craftsmanship from a foreign-built hunk of plastic given away for free to thousands of ticketholders.

Nope, sorry I said anything. It’s definitely, horribly offensive. Good on the Red Sox for canceling the promotion. Hope they do better next time.

Goddammit.
