Quote of the Day: Jonathan Papelbon

28 Comments

Yesterday Jonathan Papelbon pitched in a minor league game, in which he gave up two runs to Twins’ Double-A players.  His reaction:

“This was exactly what I wanted.”

He’s referring to the fact that he got work in and was focusing on his mechanics, but it’s also worth noting that he has a 12.60 ERA this spring. At some point you’d think that getting dudes out is exactly what he wants.

(thanks to Erik for the heads up)
