Well, so much for the morale issue: Ortiz benched

Rocco will DH for now.  After Papi's comments after yesterday, I can only assume this was a mutually agreed upon decision.  Unfortunately, this would be a good set of starting pitchers to face to turn things around.  Let's hope a break can clear up whatever issues he has.  If not, it may be a shorter period for Ortiz before he is done for good than I had assumed.
