The remarks by the 39-year-old designated hitter come in a column Thursday for The Players' Tribune, a website founded by Derek Jeter that gives professional athletes a platform.
Analysis: Ortiz also voiced his displeasure that he will ''always be considered a cheater'' to his detractors. Ortiz contends nobody in baseball has been tested more for performance-enhancing drugs than he has - more than 80 times since 2004. Ortiz writes: ''I have never failed a single one of those tests and I never will.''
