Jonathan Papelbon now fourth smartest member of family

Apr 17, 2010, 6:48 PM EDT

Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, who was expected to pitch the 10th inning Saturday upon the resumption of Friday’s suspended game, will be unavailable following the birth of his baby boy.
8-pound, 8-ounce Gunner is the newest addition to the Papelbon family, which includes wife Ashley and 15-month-old Parker.
Boston’s plan was to stick with Papelbon after he pitched the top of the ninth in a 1-1 game against the Rays that was suspended due to rain Friday. Now Daniel Bard is slated to get the ball if the Red Sox fail to score in the bottom of the ninth.

    shut the hell of pouliot – you’re just showing your own lack of intelligence.

    LMAO MP. I forgot about his first son, I thought you were including a dog or a pet goldfish or something.

    Worst shot at Papelboon I’ve ever seen… yeah Pouliot, you’re real cool, way to stick it to him, I’m sure that hurts him and his millions of dollars.

    Because sports salaries are an accurate evaluation of intelligence and worth? The question isn’t whether Papelbon is hurt, it’s why are you so hurt? Papelbon thinks as much of you for defending him as he does of Pouliot for insulting him: nothing.

    Attention Sox fans: Papelbon is kinda dumb. Please stop being humorless dicks about it. Thanks.

    Oh I get it – all people from Louisiana are dumb. Pettitte too! They talk funny right? Explains the whole Katrina disaster, why save dumb people? Nice one MP!

    No, not all people from Louisana, just this particular one. Have you heard this guy talk? Or read sone of his interviews/quotes? He may be a great (or at least very good)pitcher, but he also is dumb, and has the ability to say some really stupid things. Instead of attacking the author, or the people who find his blog both correct and funny, why not try being honest about this Papelbon, or at least try to develop a sense of humor? Come on people, funny is funny, lighten up!

    twins2010, he’s not dumb because he’s from La…he’s dumb because he’s a guy.
