Papelbon responds (but not how you think)

NEW YORK -- Jonathan Papelbon can be emotional. He can be unpredictable.

He also, apparently, can be calm and reasoned.

So when baseball announced Tuesday that Papelbon had been suspended for three games for his Saturday argument with umpire Tony Randazzo, Papelbon was . . . calm and reasoned.

"I was guilty just as much as Randazzo," the Red Sox closer said. "Maybe we can meet somewhere in the middle."

Papelbon appealed his three-game suspension, which is no surprise considering the Red Sox are beginning a three-game series against the Yankees. But Papelbon also said he was hoping for a reduction, even as he seemed to admit that some punishment was appropriate.

"There's consequences to what you do on the field," Papelbon said. "I hope next time it doesn't escalate."

Papelbon said he wants to present his case, which would be that the confrontation got worse because of Randazzo's actions. He said he doesn't care whether Randazzo is punished, but he hopes that by making his case he'll get a reduction in his own punishment.

"My side is, I didn't go out there with any malicious thoughts," Papelbon said. "I was walking away. I didn't feel like I started the whole issue. I didn't feel I was the one who made the situation go the way it did."

Papelbon was saying exactly what he should say. He was handling this as maturely as you'd want any player to handle it. It's easy to believe he was well-coached, but that's fine.

He said what he said.

And that, apparently, is Jonathan Papelbon, too.

Hey Al, munch on this: Papelbon got his 200th career save last night against your Stanks, making him the fastest ever to reach 200 saves (in only 359 appearances). He's saved for a World Series winner, been a 4 time All-Star, MLB record for consecutive scoreless innings to start a postseason career, 2007 DHL Delivery Man award, 2007 Babe Ruth Award, 1st guy to ever have 30+ saves in each of their first five seasons, etc. etc. etc.

He doesn't think he's better than Mo, he just wants to be paid like Mo. But you can't exactly call him a loser either. There won't ever be another Mo Rivera, but Papelbon ain't too shabby.

Do you not follow basebal?  Bog Boner is a tool.  He thinks he is better than Mo.  The guy is a class A loser.
