Papel-shiva. And Lauren is really over it this time.

The grieving ends now. Instead of having a Shiva for Papel-bum, I’m going to have one of those New Orleans-style party funerals. With beer. Lots of beer. And karaoke. I think Papelbon would have wanted it that way.

Wearing my Papel-shirt one last time before it goes the way of the “Go, Johnny, Go” merchandise.

Randal the cat is the only mourner I didn’t have to buy beer for.

My eulogy. Ahem.

Dear Jonathan Papelbon. He sure was great in 2007. I hope Philadelphia isn’t hell with sandwiches.

After the Papeluneral, we will never speak of him again.


Feel free to eulogize Paps in the comments. RIP. Rot. In. Philly.

    He’s said since he came up he wanted a contract that broke the record for a closer. The Red Sox have said all along they wouldn’t pay that. So, he went elsewhere, and set the record for biggest contract by a closer. Frankly, we should be commending him for being a man of his word.

    The Red Sox never said they wouldn’t pay Papelbon. They always said they wanted him back. It’s us fans that said he wasn’t worth the money and he isn’t. He also didn’t get much of a raise. He made the same money last year.

    . Papelbon never came back to the Sox after he was offered this contract. He didn’t want to be here. It’s time to move on.

    I think we should have traded him last year. Why they wasted their time keeping him here to not get in the bidding right away was dumb. Then again we might get a draft pick.

    Good Riddance Papel-blow every save. I haven’t liked you since 2008 when you started running your mouth.

    Paps was never going to stay! To his credit he never made excuses, faced the music (good or bad) and gave everything he had. The Red Sox are, were (maybe will be, their manager search has managed to confuse me, oh well, it seems to have confused them too) sabermaticianally oriented. One of the commandments of sabermaticians is “Thou shalt not pay big money for a closer”….Thanks Pap you were fun…..It would be nice to see you in October….
