But are they really friends?

Ortiz was asked by NESN’s Tom Caron during The Sports Museum’s “The Tradition” event, and got a pretty clear answer.

“Look, he’s a good guy, man,” Ortiz said, as transcribed by Boston.com’s Tom Westerholm. “I’m telling you. The thing is, he’s got his own personality. In my case, I love you the way you are. I don’t want you to be the way I want you to be. …

“I am the way I am, you are the way you are, I’m going to love you the way you are, you’ve got to love me the way I am.”

Whether that sits well with Red Sox fans remains to be seen, but there’s clearly no bad blood between the two baseball greats.

Time to drop the competitive spirt once you hang up the cleats.
