David Ortiz is arguably “the greatest clutch hitter” in Red Sox history. Since being acquired on January 22nd, 2003 he has been as consistent a hitter as you will find in the game.

He has hit 23 or more home runs four times, 30 or more home runs three times, 40 or more two times, and 50 or more once. He has amassed 90 or more RBI twice and has picked up 100 or more RBI six times.
