What? What did Papelbon say? Link!

[3] Papelbon doesn't think Puig should be an all-star

""The guy's got a month, I don't even think he's got a month in the big leagues," Papelbon said during the interview. "Just comparing him to this and that, and saying he's going to make the All-Star team, that's a joke to me.

"It's just really what happens in baseball when … to me it really does an injustice to the veteran players that have been in the game for eight-, nine-, 10-plus years. It kind of does them an injustice because they've worked so hard to stay there.""

Someone tell Papelbon the AS Game is every year, not every decade

8 Ara Just Fair   ~  Jul 3, 2013 3:58 pm

Puig is a daily highlight machine. Papelbon is is a douche bag daily.

I appreciate Paplebon's take but it's a game for the fans and even if there are guys more deserving, guys with longer track records (which is just about everyone), Puig is the man of the moment and he's the guy people want to watch. And that's that.

[13] Brilliant!

That song will be stuck in my head all day now.

"Children of a tender nature..." You could sell that shit.
