Everything, Even Manny, Gives You Cancer

I knew there was a reason I hated Jonathan Papelbon:
"He was on a different train! And you saw what happened with that. We got rid of him, and we moved on without him," Papelbon was quoted in the April issue of Esquire. The story was posted on the magazine's website today.

"So Manny was tough for us," Papelbon added. "You have somebody like him, you know at any point in the ballgame, he can dictate the outcome of the game. And for him not to be on the same page as the rest of the team was a killer, man! It just takes one guy to bring an entire team down, and that's exactly what was happening."

Oh, joy. I have little tolerance for some of the shenanigans Manny pulled to force a trade — he certainly paid for it in the offseason — but I'm not really that excited, either, to see guys whine in public about how much they hated their ex-teammates.

A Joe Jackson reference!
And hey, don't play that piano!
I wonder how cancer survivor Jon Lester feels about hearing teammate Papelbon casually throw around references to cancer.
ditto your feelings wrt Papelbon. They moved on without him alright, all the way to AL runner-up.
