    Pap Throws Some High Cheese

    In what would've amounted to Pap throwing some chin music Manny's way, Jonathan Papelbon had some harsh criticism for the former Sox slugger. In an off-season interview Pap called Manny a "cancer" and he didn't back away from that at all as the Sox continue their trek toward the regular season.

    All of this comes at a time when it seems like the Red Sox have their shhhhhhh together and that it's going to be a long and eventful season with the A-rod stuff and the Yankees being good again...oh we'll have to wait and see if that actually materializes, this amounts to a manufactured controversy. This is why I love Jonathon Papelbon, well that and the fact that he is money in the bank in the ninth inning. The guy doesn't hold back and tells it like it is.

    We need more people like him in professional sports. I am really tired of people saying the PC thing. That's one thing I always admired about the Tuna, he spoke his mind and very rarely apologized for it.

    So, PAP, I applaud you for your willingness to throw Manny under the bus and use him to try and explain away your team's losses last year. Now please, if you would, stop talking and start pitching...when do we hear play ball? Oh right, in just over 20 days from now.
