    Defending his turf, Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon said last month: “Have you ever gone to watch a movie and thought, ‘Man, this movie is so good, I wish it would have never ended.’ That’s like a Red Sox-Yankees game. Why would you want it to end? . . . If you don’t want to be there, don’t be there. Go home.”

    Now, I’ll give Papelbon the benefit of the doubt here — after all, he’s a relief pitcher, not a customer relations specialist — but I wish he’d understand that a really long movie might run 2½ hours, while Red Sox-Yankees games routinely approach 2½ days. I wish he’d understand there’s a difference between sitting in a movie theater and sitting in 42-degree weather.

    Most of all, I wish he’d just wind up and deliver. Papelbon once had a ball called on him because he took too long to pitch. He wanders around the mound so much, I half-expect him to build a gazebo out there

    Quite frankly, I'm sick of looking at Yanks/Sawx games.

    Almost enough to make a guy go see a Royals game.

    I try to never miss one of the Yanks-Sox series!

    The statististics, the tension, the tradition...

    and I wouldn't mind if Papelbon would take up gazebo-construction instead of pitching. Not a bit.

    This is where PP and Artie got their master from.. I love the Dean's hat, I always knew Artie and PP were communists, with their KGB's.
