Yet another reason not to like the Red Sox
April 10, 2009
So on Opening Day, the Red Sox had a fantastic gesture where the players walked through the stands to get to the field, which I thought was very cool. It’s not often the fans get to see the players up close like that.
Check out the video here, which I can’t figure out how to embed on a WordPress blog.
But some players think otherwise. Here’s Jonathan Papelbon:
“Just a terrible idea by [Red Sox senior vice president] Sarah McKenna, that was the person who came up with this idea, very stupid of her, ” Papelbon said. “And if she pulls another act like that, she can go down to Pawtucket.”
He added that “not many” of his teammates liked the gesture.
Way to go Papelbon, the less you can do for the fans, the better. Here’s hoping the only time Papelbon sees the mound this weekend against the Angels is in mop-up duty.
