Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz could be the next to leave Boston.

In an interview with ESPN Ortiz said there's too much drama with the Red Sox, and he's not sure whether he wants to be a part of it next year, when he becomes a free agent.

Ortiz was then asked whether he would consider playing for the New York Yankees.

"Well that's something I gotta think about. I mean, who doesn't want to be a involved into a good organization that everything goes down the right way?" Ortiz responded.

His comments follow a scathing report in the Boston Globe Wednesday that detailed allegations that star pitchers played video games and drank beer in the clubhouse during games, leading to the team's late season collapse.
