Pap's Perfection? POOF!
We knew it was going to happen sooner or later. After all, he's human. But this game was lost well before Jonathon Papelbon shuffled to the mound. Josh Beckett-101 pitches in 5 innings. Clearly he's having problems with location. In fact, the Red Sox have been a sub .500 club ever since their 6-1 start in the first week or so of April. Is this what we have to look forward to? Middle of the pack mediocrity? Only time will tell. But right now the club is not playing well. And without their two sharpsooters pitching near-perfection baseball, things look gloomy. But for Pap, this is, as he put it, just a minor bump in the road. And I believe him.
