Come August 13 at 11:45 p.m., you can find hundreds of people lined up outside their local video game store, anxiously waiting for the store manager to open the doors when the clock ticks midnight and Madden NFL 10 is released.

The famous Red Sox DH is currently hitting .195 and has only one home run. In 2004, the first year the Red Sox won the World Series with Ortiz, he had a .301 average and hit 41 homeruns.
