Sometimes, it's not as easy to be proud of our team and our organization.
This story doesn't thrill me. I'm not even concerned about the act so much: there are few to none males who do not do that after the onset of puberty. Where is the intelligence in, y'know, not closing the blinds or curtains? I don't know. Not thrilling in the least, and I feel at least a bit of shame as a Sox fan over this.
Despite seeing things his way, to some degree, I really don't like airing all this out to the press. I don't feel like it's the best way for Paps to get what he wants: the Sox generally like to keep all these kinds of talks private/confidential. I'm not sure Theo is the kind of guy to see Paps talking like this and say: "Oh, okay. Maybe we should just give him whatever he wants instead of possibly making him upset."
The Sox beat the Pirates 5-3 this afternoon. Daisuke pitched effectively for three innings, Paps tossed a 1-2-3 4th, and Julian Tavarez and Craig Hansen pitched a scoreless inning apiece. In Randy just might be wrong news, Argenis Diaz went 3-4 on the day while knocking in 2 and scoring once. First cut my ass.
