Wearing a leather shirt, stroking a chihuahua, David Ortiz said he hopes Alex Rodriguez will "be honest with himself" during his ban from baseball.

"I heard about the suspension he's going to get and stuff," Ortiz said. "And hopefully baseball will move on and he gets to be honest with himself, try to come back whenever he got to come back and finish his career."

Ortiz and A-Rod are close friends. The Yankees third baseman appeared at Ortiz's charity golf outing in the Dominican Republic in December.
