Stay away from David Ortiz's house when there's a full moon out

David Ortiz's children might be perfectly pleasant for 27 out of every 28 nights. But a word to the wise: You probably don't want to go near the Ortiz home when there's a full moon out. Not without wolfsbane and silver to protect yourself, anyway.

Ortiz learned that himself on Wednesday when, after waking up from a peaceful nap, he was startled to find one of his offspring in the throes of a lycanthropic episode. He tweeted a before and after image of the incident and noted that, indeed, the transformation was just in time for Halloween.
