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

Aftermath article by Dom Amore

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.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
