Jonathan Papelbon NY Controversy in All-Star Game

6 posts in this topic

I personally am a Twins fan and really don’t care for either Boston or the Yankee’s but when it comes to the American league against the National League I’m all for the AL regardless of the team they are from. Even if I hate a player I wouldn’t boo them in this situation. The funny thing is that Papelbon actually performed better then Rivera did in their first innings played not to say Papelbon is better then Rivera of course.

From what I understand he praised Rivera for most of the 50 minute interview but on this one repeated questioned answered as he did that he would pick himself to close. Is that really a big deal and would Rivera answer it in the same manner, Yes and I think not. What is really bad and is sooo typical of the NY fans is their poor sportsmanship attitude. We shouldn't have All-Star Games in NY when they booo one of their own AL team players especially when we are down by 2, what a bunch of jerk-baits I hope they stay close to or better yet at the bottom of the East. Way to go getting rid of Joe T. NY bums!

Original Daily News NY article that got the fans going;

Jonathan Papelbon says he should close All-Star Game instead of Mo

I totally agree with that. I hate the yankees but i am cheering for everybody on the al. I was so mad when they walked morneau! I had a feeling he was gunna win it.

It sure was nice to see Morneau to get in on the winning run though. I too was hoping they wouldn't walk him and he would get the big hit, I guess being the batting champ scared them. LOL

I am always cheering for the AL but after hearing about how the NY media blew what he said out of proportion and how the Yankee fans treated Pap, I was actually hoping Riviera would lose the darn game!

I too will cheer for the AL all the way, but lets say the game is played in Minneapolis and Papelbon says this about Nathan.

The fans in Minnesota BOO him as well. You have to stick up for your players even if Paps comments were taken out of context.

i read an article where papelbon said the NY fans were threatening his pregnant wife during the red carpet parade. if that is true, then NY is truly the home of losers. nice tough guy accents too.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
