He comes to the Red Sox in 2003, becomes BIG Papi, his home run totals for the YEAR balloon to 31, 41, 47, 53, etc., WHILE he tests positive for steroids. Yeah, steroids don't help.
Ortiz tested positive in 2003. His "worst" year out of the ones you mentioned in Boston.

Did he keep using throughout those years? Possible I guess, but I won't assume that.
