David Ortiz’s No. 34 Jersey Top Seller this MLB Offseason

2011 MLBPA - The Players Choice Photo Shoot -  Boston Red Sox

What does being named World Series MVP get you, other than respect, a fancy trophy, a monetary bonus, and a selfie with t he POTUS? Apparently if you’re David Ortiz it gets your name at the top of the list of offseason jersey sales at MLB.com. According to ESPN, Ortiz’s No. 34 jersey was the top seller from Oct. 31, 2013, to March 30, 2014 at the store of Major League Baseball’s official website, with teammate Dustin Pedroia coming in second and Yankees captain Derek Jeter rounding out the top three.

Here are the top 10:

David Ortiz                 Boston Red Sox
Dustin Pedroia           Boston Red Sox
Derek Jeter                 New York Yankees
Yadier Molina             St. Louis Cardinals
Clayton Kershaw        Los Angeles Dodgers
Andrew McCutchen   Pittsburgh Pirates
Buster Posey                San Francisco Giants
David Wright               New York Mets
Robinson Cano            Yankees/Mariners
Manny Machado         Baltimore Orioles

Can’t argue with the top three, but how on Earth did Manny Machado come in ahead of guys like Miguel Cabrera, Bryce Harper, or Mike Trout? That’s just a flat out travesty.
