times like thesekelly called yesterday to tell me that my beloved carnie king had been designated for assignment. she thought it was important I hear it from a friend, and she was right. I've been pretty focused on basketball and other trivial things lately, but it's losing someone like this that really make you focus and take stock. I just hope he ends up in a better place. I hear Colorado's sort of like heaven...
in other depressing news, the thing with papelbon is that we love him. obviously. but sometimes, you have to have words with those you love. and I think the time has come to suggest that perhaps our boy consider taking a quick break from working on his folk-hero image and doing dunkin' donuts ads and work on executing pitches.
I mean, julio lugo, I know. trust me, I know. but really? last time I checked jonathan papelbon didn't need to depend on julio lugo for his saves. he knows better than that.
so come on, show us all that that was just a fluke, paps.
