Lil Papi signs with the Red Sox for $5

The big news in Boston on Monday was David Ortiz resigning with the Red Sox on a two-year deal. But Big Papi wasn't the only Ortiz to ink a new pact with the team. D’Angelo "Lil Papi" Ortiz apparently also signed a $5 contract with Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino.

Why would D'Angelo accept such a low offer from the team?

Well, when you're still in elementary school, $5 is a pretty large sum of cash.
