Jonathan Papelbon just blew his second consecutive save

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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    HOLY HELL, Hanley Ramirez to receive long-term deal from the Marlins?!?!?!?!

    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.
