Jonathan Papelbon Is A Ritard

jonathan_papelbon2For the second time this year, Jonathan Papelbon has been fined $5,000 for taking too long to deliver a pitch.

You can read about it here.

On a personal note, I’m glad to see the Red Sox closer get what he deserves. Papelbon is the new Curt Schilling with his outspoken nature and his inability to keep his mouth shut in the press.

I only hope they can find new, creative ways to take his money in the future. “That’s $10,000 for puffing your cheeks too many times!”

  1. If MLB is gonna fine Paps for taking too long to pitch then they need to fine batters who step in and out of the box after every pitch to adjust gloves, crotches, helmets, etc. (like Mike Sweeney, for gawd’s sake). Just get in there and hit and quit acting like the batter’s box is a sand box.
