I hate Tina.

I couldn't help but notice that people are going around loving Papelbon. Not only that, but they are charmed by his big ol' country boy-ness and his apparant uncomplicated personality.

Once Papelbon hits a rough patch, and he will, that might change. The same people that love him today and are tickled by his drawl will be doing Grady Little-like impressions of him on the WEEI Whiner Line. What was once a sweet lummox will then be a stupid hick who can't help his team. Mark my words.

I just want to say that I agree. I don't know where these girls came from but we were calling him 'Apple-Bottom' long, long ago!

So you're saying we're scheduled for a Pap smear within the year, then? You know how they can prevent this from happening? Keep him as a closer, a role that is perfeted by few. We are lucky enough to have possibly the best one there is, on our team, but we're screwing it all up.

I prefer the Ross Perot to the Grady Little. Personally.
