The David Ortiz-Dan Shaughnessy feud could carry on all summer at this point.

Ortiz and the Boston Globe columnist had their second “conversation” this past weekend when the Sox slugger momentarily stopped before leaving the clubhouse Saturday and targeted Shaughnessy among a horde of reporters.

“Look who it is,” Ortiz said, glancing at the writer.

Shaughnessy had ruffled feathers in the Sox organization last week when he wrote a column suggesting that Ortiz may be using performance-enhancing drugs this season. Ortiz was listed among over 100 MLB players that tested positive for PEDs in 2003, according to a 2009 New York Times report.

“By the way, let me know what I tested positive for in 2003,” Ortiz said to Shaughnessy on Saturday.

Ortiz also told Shaughnessy that on the day the columnist questioned him about PED use, he took an MLB-sanctioned drug test.

Ortiz received the day off Sunday against Toronto as he is mired in a mini-slump following a hot April.
