this could all be settled with a simple big buck hunter tournament of championsAs seen, uh, everywhere, Papelbon attempts to make up for having not been caught on camera administering purple nurples during the brawl with the Rays by issuing fighting words here.
1. Other players have scheduled appeals with regard to their suspensions, pleading that their actions weren't really that bad, and they deserve to be suspended for fewer games. Do you think Papelbon tried to schedule an appeal to explain that he really was much more of an animal during the brawl than the camera managed to catch, and he probably deserves to be suspended for two or three games?
2. Doug Mirabelli memorably arrived to a game in a cop car in 2006? Will the next series with the Rays end with Papelbon leaving in a cop car?
