Papelbon Continues To Challenge Mo As The Greatest Closer Ever
How's that for a pitching line, eh? Just an epic day for non-Yankee closers.
Seriously, between Frankie Rodriguez going Mike Tyson's Punch Out on senior citizens and Pahpelbawn melting down again, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning knowing I have Mariano Rivera on my side. While these other clowns are watching their ERAs and WHIPs continue to rise as they sink back towards mediocrity, Mo just keeps chugging along towards the all-time saves record and the Hall of Fame (Tuesday aside of course).
P.S.- Cue all the Boston fans bitching and moaning and pleading for Daniel Bard to become the new closer. Seriously, I'm begging Terry Francona to make Bard the closer. I don't give a fuck what he did over the weekend, the Yankees fucking OWN that dude. Maybe more than they own Papelbon.
