David Ortiz tries to recruit Kevin Durant

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant is the hottest free agent on the market this year, and at one point, one-third of the league’s teams were vying for his services.

He met with a handful of them this weekend, and on Saturday, he announced he’d be making his decision in 24-36 hours.

Upon hearing that announcement, Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz put on his negotiating hat and gave his best pitch in an attempt to lure him to Boston.

The Red Sox lost 21-2 on Saturday, so Ortiz’s timing wasn’t all that great, given that it was their third-worst loss suffered in the history of Fenway Park.
