Papelbon...

Postby jamastaballa » Tue Apr 15, 2008 10:34 pm

Am I missing something, or should Papelbon be in? It's not like he pitched in consecutive games...

Uh, why is Papelbon pitching in a non-save situation today?

I don't get this... yesterday, in a save situation, Papelbon can't go because "the team is trying not to work him too hard early in the year (according to cafe users)", and now - all the sudden - he can toss 24 pitches in a non-save outing for fun?

This is B.S. :-C :-t

"Save situation" has a different definition when you're the Red Sox playing the Yankees.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Yeah exactly. Papelbon wasa good to go yesterday but wasn't needed. He was always going to pitch the 9th tonight in a close game and Francona decided quite rightly that he was worth using to protect a 4 run lead. The bullpen is now reasonably fresh going into the weekend.

Well except for Papelbon, who probably won't be available tonight after being pointlessly used last night.
