Ortiz was further pressed about whether his role would be as a coach or front office staff, but he only answered with a terse "I'll let you know later".

Could a Big Papi reunion be in the cards?

Even in retirement, David Ortiz has taken notice of Aaron Judge.

Obviously, any mention of Ortiz possibly making a comeback at some point this season is music to the ears of Red Sox fan, as the Sox now rank last in the American League with 53 home runs.

"I don't want to be bothering anybody", he said.

"No, no. Not at all, man", said Ortiz.

Judge was one of many of Sabathia's teammates - and opponents - to show up at Bowlmor in Times Square on Monday, and in a rivalry that is now without the retired Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez, it was pretty clear who the new main attraction is. It seemed like we'd get the big guy back for one more run and I had visions of a World Series dancing in my head.

"They have good hitters", said the Beantown legend. Ortiz couldn't stop talking about the Babe Ruth-like power of the 6-7, 282-pound Judge, who leads the American League with 18 homers this season. Pablo Sandoval added a double while Mitch Moreland, Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts added base hits in the win. "We're going back and forth and at some point it's going to happen". As for the Red Sox, Drew Pomeranz gets the ball. Boston, which now sits just two games back of the Yankees in the AL East, is in need of offense and could pursue a big bat at the non-waiver trade deadline in July.

It's been a while since the two teams were both World Series contenders at the same time, but that appears to be the case in the 2017 Major League Baseball season.

The event in question was the "All-Stars of New York" charity bowling tournament, founded by Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia to benefit his non-profit organization known as the PitCCh Foundation.
