    So how long does Francona remain loyal to Papeldog?

    We are not going anywhere with this guy.

    His last best year was 2007.

    Maybe if he gets rid of that stupid circle mouth when he pitches.

    Are batters supposed to be afraid of that face?

    I'm going to go have a good puke now.

    He can only throw fastballs and he can't spot them anymore.

    He's washed up. Better discover HGH or forget about it you dog.

    The Jays would hit less home runs if Papelbon was on their side.

    Yeah that was pretty disgusting. He's been sucking it up this year. I wouldn't mind watching him walk.

    Papelbon's form has been on the decline this season but he's hardly a "dog".

    papsmear is a one pitch pitcher. he cant get anything but his fastball over for strikes on a consistent basis and the hitters know it. they just sit and wait for juicy fastballs over the middle of the plate. so glad he never signed a long term deal. im looking forward to the day hes gone.

    I was saying the same thing to my brother last night....Let him walk and Bard will be the new closer.....I would like to see bard work on a good change up to counter his 97-100mph fastball.....Bard has a ridiculous disappearing slider so if he developed a great change up he would be almost unhittable.....I would trade papelboner as teams would give up something to have him and we would get something for nothing....

    Wakefield has become a terrible pitcher and should have been retired. He's given the Sox wonderful service but he's that guy who has gone on for to long unable to pul the pin himself.

    If you want to blame anyone blame Epstein for extending Beckett who has been less then brilliant for the past two seasons.

    Francona's aware of Wake's limitations. Your post makes it seem as though you aren't aware of the fact that he needs someone to pitch out of the pen tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after, etc.

    Last night's game was mostly lost when Beckett started serving 'em up in the fifth. A manager should be able to expect more from a top of the rotation guy like him.

    btw: it isn't easier to hit a pitch coming in a 65 when you've been dealing with pitches 20-30 mph faster all night.

    josh beckett is a over hyped overrated overpaid stiff. like papsmear hes a one pitch pitcher. he cant get any pitch consistently over the plate but his fastball. the result is a steady supply of baseballs landing over outfield fences. and a bad case of whiplash for anybody watching him pitch.

    It's a bit different being a set-up guy, but Bard is definitely the goods this year.

    I'd be SHOCKED if he is with the team next year. They can't keep on wasting a roster spot.

    Funny NESN just put 2 Papelbon commercials on back to back. The Prime Motor Group jig one and the Dunkies one with Pedroia. You'd think they'd be smart enough not to do that.

    It wasn't totally Pap's fault for the loss, if Kalish didn't miss the 2 catches we probably wouldn't have lost.

    Does Aroldis Chapman strike anyone as a Mariano Rivera in the making? ******* Cincinnati.
