Papelbon is a joke.

Postby Zito is God » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:39 pm

This bum has cost me a hundred bucks in sports bets and just inflated my ERA and WHIP for the week. I remember a year ago I always thought it was game over when this guy entered the game, but now it seems like he is not threatening. I can only assume Bard is taking over, but when? And what is the main reason that Papelbon has lost his success?

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

By far my least favorite player in all of baseball. When I hear he blew a save I go right to a computer or TV to watch it happen }:-)

Oh yea, nothing like a Papelbon blown save to make my day. :-]
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Paps is probably my least favourite player too. I don't even go to Boston games anymore in Toronto because I can't stand all the Sox fans going "Paps this" and "Paps that". %-6

His numbers are still pretty good though. You could do much worse in fantasy.

Zito is a joke.
This bum has cost me millions of dollars and just lost another game for the year. I remember years ago I always thought it was quality start when this guy started the game, but now it seems like he is not threatening. I can only assume Joe Martinez is taking over, but when? And what is the main reason that Zito has lost his success?
-Brian Sabean

But in all seriousness, a team could do a lot worse then Papelbon as their closer. He has 1 more year in arbitration so they'll likely keep him as their closer until end of next year and then move Bard into the closers role. I suppose they could try trading him this off-season but I don't think that's going to happen considering how thin they are in the bullpen.

He had just given up a go-ahead HR to Omir Santos in the top of the 9th and was pissed at a call on the field in the bottom half. I can't recall what it was at the moment. I enjoyed it, though.

I haven't seen Papelbon pitch in a long time. Does he still do that pursed lip thing that makes him look even more like a puckered anus than he normally does?

He proceded to throw a towel at a reporter afterwards. The reporter was lucky and got a action shot

Papelbon screamed, "Don't take my f- - -ing picture," according to Causi, before throwing his towel at him
It should be noted: Papelbon missed Causi.
"I guess he missed with two pitches that night," Causi cracked.
