David Ortiz's Decline: Not PEDs, but Age: Bill Simmons asserts that Big Papi's decline is due to age, and that he is older than the Red Sox media guide lists (4 years older).

If an athlete lied about his age, wouldn't that make it possible to throw his contract out? For vets like Ortiz, one of the big factors in these multi-year deals is the age of the player.

I don't see why not. 4 years is a pretty big difference in professional sports. I wonder how deep that rabbit hole would go?

At least his horrible slump hasn't affected his defense.

A man may steal my chickens, and a man may steal my wife.

But no man can steal my age.
