just wacky enoughQuick mention of the Papel-hawk in Mark Herrmann's Newsday column yesterday:
Latest in the saga of Jonathan Papelbon, Red Sox reliever. He won a bet with teammate Kevin Youkilis and, for a prize, gave himself a Mohawk hairdo. Yes, that's what he did when he won the bet. This Papelbon might just be wacky enough to be a legitimate closer.
Assuming the rain holds off, tonight should be the debut of "Wild Thing" here at Fenway against the wretches from NY.
