In case you doubt the primacy of Red Sox baseball in Boston there's this true, actual, verfiable fact on which to ruminate, (source: WGBH news): According to the Boston Election Department, Red Sox DH/warrior-poet/2013 World Series MVP David Ortiz finished with the most write-in votes in the recent mayoral election.

Marty Walsh triumphed over John R. Connolly in the battle of candidates actually on the ballot, so the takeaway is that Big Papi finished third in the Boston mayor's race. Records indicate that a total of 560 write-in votes were cast, and Ortiz had the highest total. Perhaps a grassroots movement is afoot?

In a very real sense, it really is his bleepin' city.
