Most of you have already heard how “Mr. ME” (otherwise known as Jonathan Papelbon) made another demand; this latest selfish act was getting Doug Fister’s number, which Doug has had since he became a pro player. Last night Fister was the starting (and winning) pitcher and he has a new number-33- I think it was.
Meanwhile The Philadelphia newspapers were full of stories about how glad that city is to see the last of Papel-jerk. I tried to import one here, but had to give up after 30 minutes.
Mike Rizzo likes to brag about how much he and the owners value “character” when they evaluate potential new players. Sadly, that is clearly not the case, if it ever was.
