Jonathan Papelbon just blew his second consecutive save

And on the 7th day, he rested
A one-sentence game wrap-up

Remember when people used to say Mo was finished when he did something like that?

    I’m loving this but his 21:2 K:BB is just cartoonish. This unfortunately will not last.

      You never know, relievers are a volatile bunch. Wishful thinking, yes. Impossible? No.

    Looks like All-Dejo (Yes, that’s my new nickname for Jonathan Albaladejo) is headed to the DL with an elbow injury. Chris Britton, get your ass back here!

      Poor Chris Britton. That guy’s getting jerked off more than Ian Kennedy in the bullpen.

        Poor Chris Britton? He’s probably enjoying it.

          These guys are still getting paid to play baseball. For us, playing wiffleball has an opportunity cost.

    i just happened to tune in to watch the 9th inning of the twins/sox—what a treat to see papelblown give the game away for the second time in a week. he’s such a mental case i’m hoping that this will start getting in his head.

      “PapelBlown”, LoL, nice. I’m so not forgetting that one.

    Brandon Wood is striking out at an alarming rate, expectedly of course. He now has struck out in 41% of his ABs this season. Ouch babe.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Yeah, I believed in Brandon Wood once upon a time. Never again will I fall for Cal League stats.

    I like Britton, but I wouldn’t call him up now. Why not use the injury to call Kennedy up now instead of having to wait another week or so?

    I wouldn’t bet much on Papelbon losing anything. A couple blown saves is only significant in that they were back-to-back. His overall numbers from his 2+ years in the majors are a much better indication of his ability. Of course, if he’s injured, it’s a different story.

    I think the yankees should give Britton one real chance at sticking, and then if they still don’t like him trade him for anything. They’ve shown an extreme dislike for him, probably because he’s fat, but his minor league numbers indicate he should be able to stick around as a 7th inning guy for somebody.
