Papelbon says Phillies fans are smarter than Boston Fans
(ESPN)– “The Philly fans tend to know the game a little better, being in the National League, you know, the way the game is played.” Papelbon also said he had expected the Red Sox to be more aggressive in pursuing him in the offseason. The Phillies signed him early in free agency, locking him up with a four-year, $50 million deal. “It was a situation where the Red Sox didn’t really come at me the way I was expecting them to come at me in the offseason,” Papelbon said during the radio interview. “And I told my agent that the first team that shows me interest and shows me loyalty, I’m going to show that right back to them, and that was Philadelphia.” Dropkick Murphys’ front man Ken Casey caused a bit of a stir earlier in the week when he said Papelbon, whom he calls a friend, couldn’t come out of the Phillies’ bullpen to “Shipping Up To Boston,” the popular Dropkick tune Papelbon used for years with the Red Sox.
Fuck you Papelbon. Everyone knows he’s like the dumbest guy in baseball. The Red Sox didn’t want you back because you’re breaking down and are overpaid. Thanks for the memories…dick.
